In the kids' room, the homeowners wanted a bright, bold option that would still complement the rest of the house, so designers added a faux thatched roof accent to the space. To keep it bright, yellow uplighting highlights the addition, while bright green and blue curtains and bed frames keep this room fun and youthful. To complete the space, a blue and green geometric rug adds a bit of comfort to the space.
The homeowner wanted a simple, elegant space that would allow them to relax after a long day, so designers created a Zen-inspired master suite that draws on the beauty of the moon and the simplicity of the leaves.
The sharp pitch of an A frame roof can feel a bit small and constricting, but this design makes the most of that space. The exposed beams that accent the room make use of triangular shapes to accent the drastic pitch and make the space look larger.
Experience bird's eye views of China's capital city in this 5,000 square foot, two-story penthouse. Light-filled rooms flow seamlessly together for the ultimate in modern urban living. Sleek wood and bamboo surfaces used throughout the space contribute to the streamlined aesthetic, while subtle touches of traditional Chinese decor lend a sense of history and place.
In the master bedroom, large windows frame the space, making the room feel bright and open. Two chaise lounges give the homeowners a lovely view of their surroundings without ever having to leave their oasis, while an oriental rug and orange accents help to add color and personality to this elegant, Asian inspired master bedroom.
The focal point of this peaceful bedroom is the custom-designed cherry wood platform bed, along with matching floating nightstands and a wall-to-wall dresser. A carved wooden armchair with a plaid cushion and red pillow sits in the corner, while a wooden Zen sculpture is featured on top of the dresser.
A black and white three-fold headboard and Buddha art canvas bring traditional asian flair to the contemporary feel of this bedroom. A mix of throw pillows features yellow, orange and purple tones with a sheen finish reflecting the natural light from the windows. Midcentury modern nightstands support warm-toned table lamps on both sides of the bed. A brown rug is angled across the floor to create an interesting line through the room.
There's no better way to spice up an elevated floor — and remind yourself and guests that it's there — quite like the addition of rope lighting. Tucked under the underside of the raised floor, the rope stretches all the way across the room, creating a unique glow. The details and creative elements of the space are enhanced with the use of several different light sources: framing wall sconces, hanging pendants, recessed can lights, table lamps and a hidden fixture within the headboard.
