This modern master suite sought to create the perfect haven, where elegance coexists with functionality for the family it was designed to nurture. The many hues of grey tones seek to evoke the beauty of nature. The interior designer introduced the architect, builder and owner to distinctive architectural details integrated with features sought by the owners. A requirement of the space was to create a sleeping and seating area in the master bedroom, which has dramatic high ceilings and large windows. The sleeping area is defined by a recessed cove ceiling detail. To create a tranquil, zen-like setting to relax and sleep, the master bedroom is appointed with monochromatic comfort in both color and furniture. A custom accent bed wall in warm, grey, wood tones with antiqued mirrors, and a rich, upholstered wall panel using varied textures adds interest. There is also a convenient breakfast bar in the master suite. Porcelain wood flooring is used in the bedroom, and white glass, tiled flooring in the master bathroom. Entering the master bathroom through double doors, the bathtub and feature art wall provide a focal point amongst the “his” and “hers” pairs of WCs, vanities and closets.
Judges’’ Comments: “Etched glass panel is unbelievable. Fifty shades of gray is very sophisticated . . . love the blue flooring, very aquatic.”
