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.
An eye-catching platform bed with lighting underneath both complements and emphasizes the striking hardwood floors in this simple Zen bedroom. Black-and-white art on the wall and yellow flowers on the nightstand add just the right personal touches to the space.
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.
The owners of this home turned the lower level and carport into a luxurious, Asian-style master bedroom suite. The large space includes several seating areas, a courtyard, spa bathroom and a remarkable fireplace that hovers above the floor.
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.
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.
A soft color palette of tan and sky blue pairs with Asian design to give this bedroom a serene, tranquil atmosphere. A sliding glass door provides access to a private patio and also allows natural light to infiltrate the room.
Geometric floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the natural landscape, making this room appear as though it's in a tree house. A hand-carved corner chair, an Oriental rug and Asian art above the bed give the space a collected, global look inspired by traveling.
With spartan simplicity and a soft neutral palette, this bedroom creates a soothing retreat. Visual interest is brought in via texture: the stone accent wall, built-in wood nightstands, even the carpet.
