This is one of my favorite master bedrooms of all time. It immediately reads as a luxury destination. This was the last space we designed in our original scope of work and I wanted everything we chose to have as much tactile appeal as it did visually. Wherever you land, you’ll sink down into lush velvets, silks, furs or mohair. The color palette is small but soothing, varying from dark chocolates to taupes with dashes of white to keep it crisp and reflect light. We used a faux silk wallcovering in the bedroom’s entry and on the bed wall, but conserved by using a perfect color-matched paint on the walls adjacent. I know it may seem a little indulgent but whenever you can, try adding fresh flowers or an orchid in your bedroom: instant hotel suite status!

Hang stars from a chandelier for an easy way to sparkle up the holidays. Keep things interesting by using a variety of sizes and adding at least one patterned paper to mix with a few solid colors. Use a thin metal wire or ribbon to attach the ornaments to the chandelier, making sure to vary the length to make the arrangement more pleasing to the eye.
