For the past three weeks we have been talking about what design decisions we have made on the apartment we are working on in Munich, Germany. It’s under construction now. I can’t wait to see it finished! Although small, it will pack a big punch.
Today, let’s cover the master bedroom. See the color palette of materials I selected?
For a small apartment, the bedroom is a nice size. Plenty of room for a king size bed, and a few storage bureaus, and a chair and a half for curling up and reading. Look at this great bed we found. The client loves it.
I love the tone it sets for the room – romantic, but clean and simple. I think it will look fabulous centered upon a lush white wool carpet, which sits upon the dark oak floors.
The white carpet has a cut and loop construction giving it a linear pattern. Just so nice and subtle. It sits on dark brown oak flooring.
Drapery will be important in this room, as they will be needed for black out and privacy functions. The client loves nature, trees and plants, so we are using soft greens in the bedroom, along with white, to create that peaceful feeling for her. The drapery has a light linen feel, with a natural linen background, white stripes in a herringbone pattern, and two shades of green stripes. (see above)
The bed will have pure white Frette linens with white duvet cover. Splash will be added with shams and toss pillows in this patterned fabric.
I love the cream and yellow-gold, which has the patterned outlined in green. That simple little outline adds so much depth and sophistication to this fabric. It is also soft and tactile.
This will be a room that I would love to stay in! If I walked into a hotel room and found the above scheme, I would say to myself, “Oh, am I lucky to be here!” Now let’s check out flights to Munich, right away! Are you with me?
