Light Up the Room

Beautiful metallics mixed with lush fabrics create an opulent feel in this warm, glamorous master suite. The stunning chandelier is definitely a show stopper in the space. According to designer Nile Johnson, "The pattern that its lighting made on the ceiling, once installed, was quite spectacular and something I couldn’t have imagined in my initial conceptual phase."

The Perfect Mix

A cohesive mixture of wood, fabric, metal and mirrored accents creates interest in the bedroom without being overwhelming, keeping the focus on the room as a whole, rather than one individual piece.

Blue on Brown

A pair of soft blue chairs placed by the fireplace creates an inviting seating area that really pops against the cool brown walls in the bedroom.

Custom Built-In

While a built-in bookshelf is always great for storage, this one gives the room a healthy dose of style. "I merchandised the bookshelf with items that were different in look and feel and painted the back of it in a contrasting yet complimentary color, which helped the custom built-in to stand out a little more," says Nile.

Clutter-free Closet

Just off the bedroom sits a glorious closet filled to the max with storage space to ensure no loose clothing articles or shoes ever make an appearance on the beautiful bedroom floor.

Little Changes, Big Impact

Since an entire bathroom update just wasn't in the budget, Nile opted for a fresh color palette and some trendy new accessories. "I had to figure out a way to give the space an update, while staying in budget and aesthetically matching the rest of the suites elevation in schematics and design," explains Nile. "It was through paint and fabrics that I was able to achieve an eclectic yet serene space that worked really well with the master bedroom."
