Project Highlight: Waterside Master Bedroom

A Waterside Hideaway

Prior to this project, the MFI team created a glamorous master bathroom for a Houston-area couple that embodies the essence of classic, functional style. They were pleased and returned to our group requesting that we design their master bedroom that would complement the updated bath space.

A handsome wool area rug sets the tone in this master retreat. The rug displays a modern twist on a traditional pattern and combines a soothing mixture of gold and grey tones. Gently playing off of these hues, the room’s furnishings take on a calming neutral color palette. This palette serves as the perfect backdrop for the use of warm, rich rust tones and diverse decorative fabrics. Linen, velvet, silk and wool come together and showcase a luxurious and contemporary room that finds itself united with a powerful sense of tradition.

Adhering to our client’s desire to incorporate pre-existing antiques, many of their personal furniture pieces were preserved. Any new items were selected based on the unique charm they offered to the space. An over-scale antiqued French chandelier hangs at the end of the bed serving as both a distinctive focal point and a dramatic statement. The more contemporary items, such as the white animal hide bench, mirrored coffee table and gilded iron table lamps, offer modern lines that present an attractive contrast against the turn-of-the-century oak bedroom set.

The master bedroom now functions as an enchanting companion to the connecting bathroom. With enough space to live, relax, and slumber in luxury, our clients can now take a deep breath and delight in their elegant hideaway. 

(At the client’s request, this design was developed and executed in record time. The transformation took place over the course of 3 days which is a first for our team! We are proud of the close relationships we share with our clients and of the efficient, resourceful teamwork you can expect from Marie Flanigan Interiors; without these and a few incredible Houston-area vendors, this remarkable project would never have been possible.)

Rachel's Raves: Black Doors

Add some DRAMA: Black Doors
 
Want to add more drama to your home? A simple, yet classic, way to do that is by painting your interior doors a color other than white; in particular – a rich smoky black.

Leaving the frame white helps accent the door color
