Minimalist Bedroom

Sleek, contemporary furniture in a minimalist color palette is used to create a calming, low-key bedroom design. Since the homeowner loves water, designer Tara Benet hangs a ocean-view picture above the bed. It acts as a focal point of the room, while also adding a subtle touch of color.

Warm Contemporary

To warm up the gray-and-white color palette, shades of brown are incorporated into the design through the flooring, dresser and mirror. The contemporary dresser is made of blackened bronze and features a solid walnut front.

Mirror With a View

Benet places a floor mirror to disguise the structural column in the corner of the room. It helps to open up the small bedroom without obstructing the view of the city.

Simple Nightstands

Low, open nightstands fit in perfectly with the minimalist design of the bedroom, while providing storage and surface area for bedtime essentials.
