Happy 2021, y’all! It’s been one hell of a first couple of weeks and I wanted to kick things off on a light-ish note with something I’ve promised for some time now. You’ve seen it here and there, but I’m finally digging into all the details of our main bedroom and bathroom. So let’s dive right in, shall we?!
If you’ve missed any part of our mini reveals, take a gander below! Now, let’s get to it!
This is the main hallway that we walk down to get into all of our bedrooms. I wanted it to be filled with natural light and have views of the trees in our backyard from the first to last room. You’ll see that I tied in the same beams from the kitchen down this hallway, and once you scroll down even further, you’ll see we carried the beam theme right on into our bathroom as well.
I can’t talk about this hallway without mention of these gorgeous windows from Marvin. The narrow frame casements are super clean, and I chose to paint the windows and trim in a different color than the walls to make them pop, ever so slightly. They let in every bit of natural light that makes me smile from ear to ear every time I walk this hall. Ps. if you missed it, I wrote all about my window selections and more here!
Welcome to our cozy bedroom! True to form like the rest of the house, I really didn’t want an overly grand or large bedroom. When designing this space it was all about nailing the cozy vibes, and a big giant bedroom for my family of three felt over the top. So we kept in cool, and tried to add volume by vaulting the ceilings and keeping the space light and bright. In my opinion it’s just enough room for the essentials. Our bed, our night side tables, a pretty case piece, a chaise lounge, and of course some extra space for our 3 kittens, 2 dogs, and 1 child to run around!! I brought in all sorts of textures, like a boucle bed, a velvet chaise, and some super soft layers with a pop of color and pattern for the top of the bed. Similar to the hallway, we wanted to look into our yard, and seeing that our bedroom is at the end of our “U”-shaped house, we look out and see green grass, lots of old huge trees – and I can easily spy on what’s happening in the rest of the house!
PS. A lot of you have been asking, and I promise to take you into our closets in a separate post (coming soon)!
I gotta say… our bathroom brings me a whole lotta joy!! Like the rest of our home, I wanted this room to have just as much natural light as the rest. No one wants to do their makeup in the wrong light… amirite?!
But in all seriousness and I’ve mentioned this before, I stuck with a simple palette of materials throughout our entire home, but applied them in a unique way in every space. So here, you see the same beams as seen in the kitchen and hallway, but they’re in totally opposite ends of the home. I carried on with custom white oak cabinetry, similar to the Guest and Office bathroom, but designed them to feel cohesive, but also very different from room to room. Like the kitchen, I chose beautiful Calacatta marble countertops, and if you look closely they have a unique ogee edge detail inspired by an old Belgian Farmhouse bathroom I saw somewhere.
I designed the space specifically for our showstopper Waterworks tub and added a custom sheer cafe curtain on the window behind. To the right of the tub, we have a separate shower, lined with Cle Tiles and I used my favorite Waterworks RW Atlas exposed shower system. To finish it off, I designed a custom steel shower door powder coated to match the trim in my whole house, made by my bud Cooper Reynolds Gross.
Aaaand that’s a wrap on this little corner of our home. Next up, exterior! Stay tuned…..
