Master Suite Project (Part II)
Not everyone has the luxury to have a seating area as a part of their master bedroom, but our clients had a great loft space adjacent to their bedroom that they loved but didn’t know how to utilize. As you can see in the photo, the loft was a forgotten space that only collected everything else that didn’t have a home elsewhere.
Our number one goal with this space was to make it functional. We liked the idea of keeping it this area a sitting area; although our clients had an existing chaise lounge, it looked tired and worn out. Instead, we opted for a casual, comfy curved sofa and coordinating ottoman on an angle, which feels much more inviting.
Our clients didn’t need any more bookcases or storage space, but what they needed was a space to write bills and use their laptop. This space became a clutter collector, and really served no purpose for the family.
Instead, we chose a writing desk with beautiful cabriole legs to keep the loft feeling open and airy. The black finish with painted details give the space another texture without looking too heavy. Add a petite desk lamp, a beautiful oil painting and some perfectly-placed accessories and you have a corner that is no longer an eyesore!
Tying the master bedroom and the sitting area together, we used the same carpeting and fabric on the window treatments in both rooms. Additionally, as this loft area overlooks the client’s foyer, we added crown molding throughout the loft and the foyer as well; with the open space new crown molding this made the room look finished.
One thing we wanted to do, but unfortunately were not able to, was replace the existing light fixtures with recessed can light. With the pitch of the roof and the way the lights were originally wired, we could do nothing but replace the existing fixtures with another flush light fixture. But not to worry, we got rid of the brass and added flush-mount fixtures.
To pick up the white we added in crown molding, we repeated that detail by painting the spindles of the staircase white, once again giving it a fresh, updated look. Instead of replacing perfectly good spindles, painting them white achieved the look we wanted without going over budget.
After our team finished, our clients were left with a beautiful and functional space!
The best part about our job is not only picking furniture & fabrics and seeing the progress of each project, but seeing it come all together and the fantastic reaction our clients have when they see their new room for the very first time.
