Coastal Accents in a Serene Master Bedroom


More often than not, when you find your dream home, it isn’t exactly perfect. There’s usually a space or two that you wish you could change, update, redesign, or even move. This master bedroom was no exception. The bones were there, but to create the client’s ideal master suite, we needed a full remodel.

The Wish List

This client was looking for cohesion between rooms and a true master suite. The design inspiration was classic and timeless, but the client also loved the beach! To create serenity and the perfect master bedroom, we selected colors and accents with  influences from the ocean and incorporated traditional furniture pieces to achieve the perfect blend of coastal and classic style.

The Must-Haves

  • Traditional elegance
  • Transition into a full master suite — including master bedroom, closet, and bath



Interior Design Dilemma

When I began this master bedroom project, it was immediately evident that the individual rooms were not going to work in their current state. The most prominent challenge we faced on this project was reconfiguring the individual rooms to use the space better and maximize storage options.

Design Solutions

To make the most use of the space, we had a few custom pieces created. Both the rug and the bed were constructed specifically for this room. By doing this, we were able to use the rug and the bed as focal pieces that perfectly blended into the layout of the room.


Design Highlight

For an interior designer, one of the most rewarding moments is when a client gives the green light on an idea that has the power to change the space entirely. As the designer, this shows that the client trusts you, but for the client, this can be scary! For the master bedroom, the bold idea my team and I came up with was to relocate the shower.

By moving the shower, this allowed my team and I to create the details that set this suite apart. We added inset tile, a gorgeous shower seat, more than one shower head, and glass on two sides of the shower to open the space up and add complimentary luxury to the room.


Team Favorites

The shower wasn’t the only highlight. My favorite item in the master bedroom was the lamps (pictured above) we used on the nightstands. I knew these would be a hit with the client. Not only were they elegant, but they also reminded me of the sea!
