4th and Ocean Project: Primary Suite and Office Reveal

A primary suite should always feel like a personal, private retreat, and with a small workspace and light-filled spa-like bathroom, this one definitely fits the bill! Gorgeous statement lighting, custom furnishing and cabinetry, and luxurious materials combined to create a layered, beautiful space for our clients to escape from the world.

The Primary Bedroom

When you walk into the primary suite, the first thing you see are the wall-to-wall french doors leading out the patio overlooking the backyard. The gorgeous custom drapery -- white sheers and a grey and white striped black-out curtain on top -- on these is truly jaw-dropping! This house is all about subtle pattern play. But the real show-stopper in the room is the paneled vaulted ceiling. White Oak tongue and groove panels span the spaces between the beams and the effect is just so textural and cozy. It really warms up the large room.

We pulled the blue shade that we used on the custom upholstered bed from the vintage rug, and the dark colors really ground the all-white space. Even with the large bed there was a lot of space at the end, so we designed a cool settee for relaxing or watching television (or holding the outfits rejected this morning, ha!). When you walk in further you notice the walk in "his" closet to the left and then a beautiful wall to wall built in desk to the right. This area is "her" office where she can display pretty things and have a place to sit down and do any work she needs to get done.

The Primary Bath

This is the bathroom of our dreams! We kept it really classic and timeless in here with marble on the floor in a small hexagon pattern, and a heavier veined marble for the counter tops and surround in the shower. On the entire back wall and into the shower, we used my favorite square hand made Zellige tile. It really makes the room! My favorite detail is the marble window trim -- it's so luxurious and such a simple design detail that packs a really big punch.

The bathtub moment centered on the windows is super spa-like with the linen shades keeping everything feeling serene and light. We also did a tongue and grove detail on the ceiling in here but instead of staining it we painted it white so that the other parts of the bathroom really had a chance to stand out. The custom vanity has inset doors with a reeded detail and is stained the same custom color as the bedroom ceiling. For the vanity backsplash, we brought up the marble and then added a small 4" ledge shelf across the whole vanity. Then we paired everything with brass details and polished nickel plumbing because I LOVE mixing metals to keep rooms feeling layered and timeless.

The Office

Off the patio and behind the bed area is a little office for our client to work form home when needed. We wanted to feel different from "her" desk area so we made it a little more masculine with grey cabinets and a deep walnut counter. This space is just big enough for a little seating area and a view out to the backyard.
