Doors & Entries
Bedrooms are a sanctuary for our soul.
I think of bedrooms as the inner sanctum of your home, your sanctuary - a private almost holy space where few are invited. It’s where your dreams are formed, where you are reborn each and every day, it’s the space where you rest and recharge before facing the world once again. It is within this sacred space that your wildest imagination can run free. It’s also the first place your eyes open up to greet the dawn of the new day. The colors and patterns you choose, the artwork, the furniture, the arrangement - they all impact and interact with your mood and energy to inform how you emerge to face the day.
Interior Design, Decorating
Layers on layers
We applied a peel and stick wallpaper to this bedroom rental to add a touch of modern flair and balance out the heaviness of the bed frame.
Cute and cozy.
We balanced the cuteness of this room with a piece of modern art that blended right in with the bedroom design.
Designing around floors
In this small studio apartment, we worked around the floor to determine the best layout of the space. In this case, we ended up with a full size bed, the maximum width of the floor.
In this serene home by the beach, we kept the palette fresh and bright.
The best thing
We always listen to our homeowners and this homeowner loved a piece of art gifted to her by her husband. It became the centerpiece in the primary bedroom.
This homeowner wanted to create a vibey glamorous bedroom so we mixed vibrant colors with animal prints and luxurious fabrics.
We used modern geometric shapes, glass, and photography to uplevel this bedroom without spending a fortune on new furniture.
Art as the focal point
This home is all about the art so we created rooms that centered around the art and drew the eye towards the prints.
Adding extra storage
Prior to us helping this homeowner, she used open racks to hang her shelving. We dramatically expanded her storage by using IKEA closets to maximize her square footage.
Saddle up cowgirl
We salvaged this old bed frame by creating a room theme centered around the bed.
We weren't afraid to mix modern art with these classic pieces to remix a growing daughter's bedroom.
The balancing effect of 3
I love grouping items in threes - like the masks on the wall and the peacocks (can you spot the 3 big ones)? The number 3 is a sacred number of the Trinity, the number of woman in the Mayan culture and the number of the cosmos in Egyptian lore - sky, earth and the middle world. Buddhist prayer beads, or mala beads, have 108 beads - a multiple of 3. It is the number of wholeness and completion and one that creates and attracts positive energy.
Stimulating creativity and joy
Did you know that orange stimulates creativity, joy, enthusiasm, passion and a general sense of wellness? I love these orange and pink Moroccan poufs I found @asakaftans in Venice Beach complemented by pops of orange in the curtains and the lantern I purchased in Marrakech. #highvibehome #highvibehavens #highvibeliving #conscioushomedesign #orange #highenergyhome
When working with a small bedroom, the first thing you must do is determine the placement of the bed. Ideally, you don't cover any windows with the headboard to allow in as much light as possible. Nightstands should not be taller than the windowsill itself. When working with neutral furniture, balance white with pops of color and inspiring artwork or textiles.
Channeling spirit animal energy
What’s your spirit animal? Don’t think too hard. It’s the first animal that comes to mind. You might already have one on repeat throughout your home. My spirit animal is the peacock - a bird representative of graceful transformation. I wanted to be reminded of the transformation I have undergone so I incorporated playful nods to the peacock in my choice of headboard and side table. Once you've picked your spirit animal, simply Google 'spiritual meaning of (enter animal)' and see what you learn.
