In a space with sharp architectural angles designer Samantha Nicholson’s choice of pale pink for the walls serves a dual purpose, both softening the harsh edges and highlighting the room’s character. Another bonus for a waterfront home: “It’s a simple, soothing color that’s a twist on the expected blue/green palette that you’d expect in a coastal home,” she says.
A mix of midcentury modern details bring a playful, grown-up vibe to this kid’s bedroom. Layers of soft upholstery on the bedframe and chair combine with soothing tones in the bedding and area rug for a balance between angular design elements and soft accents.
New energy-efficient windows a bit bigger than before on each side of the bed and another by the seating area have crisp white roman shades that offer control over the level of natural light in the room.
Warm neutral tones and streamlined furnishings compliment the soft contemporary design of this master retreat. Two story ceilings add a sense of grandeur to the space while the furniture anchors the room.
Soft modern style meets neutral elegance in this beach house, from the clean lines on the dark wooden closets to the contemporary room divider that provides privacy from the oversized window. The neutral bedding, armchair and upholstered headboard give the space a bit of warmth.
To create a truly relaxing retreat, the walls in this bedroom feature a tufted soft blue fabric. Classic dressers are used as nightstands and flank the comfortable bed with a upholstered curved headboard. A crystal chandelier brings in a touch of glamour.
