bedroom bathroom tourAs we spend more time at home these days, creating a place of calming comfort is proving to be essential. With the winter months approaching – bringing us indoors for more of our recreational time – having a place to escape and seek some quiet moments is important. The bedroom is a natural fit for a winter sanctuary to start and end your day. While a full-scale renovation may not be on your agenda, it’s never too early to start planning and collecting ideas for when the time is right. This principal suite tour is full of great ideas to save for later and for some inspiration that can be introduced right now.

Lean Into Modern Glamour


The mirrored walls and drawer fronts of this makeup vanity are trimmed in oak to match the adjacent ensuite. This area, adjacent to the suite entrance, includes art deco style sconces that reflect beautifully off the mirrored surfaces and tie into the subtle deco elements throughout house.

Find Moments of Subtle Drama


The ensuite is full of understated yet striking design choices. The cerused oak from the vanity is repeated in the stylish Japanese inspired wood screen behind the tub, which lends privacy to the shower and water closet. The oversized vanity features wall-to-wall mirror, reflecting lots of natural light from the adjacent window. A classically inspired pattern on the floor is updated in a contemporary palette to complete the space.

Strike A Balance


The focal point of the principal bedroom is this four-poster bed in a brushed brass finish, which adds a lot of sparkle, especially when paired with the casually relaxed look of the wire brushed oak finish dresser and nightstands. The floral bedding adds a softness to the space, making it an inviting place to unwind.

Brian’s Tip: An oversize floral brings a softer, more organic point of view to the bedroom.

A Place To Relax And Unwind


A comfortable chair and ottoman by the window is the perfect place to wind down with a book at the end of the day – and take advantage of garden or city views. Escape the chill of winter and enjoy the sunshine from the cozy haven of your bedroom suite.
