Hope everyone had a beautiful + relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. The Sunday Scaries are real this week because somehow this extended weekend flew by in a flash and I am not ready for Monday to arrive. To help ease the nerves, I’m taking you upstairs at our Brentwood Project and walking you through the master suite, upstairs landing + the cutest little private patio you ever did see.
Stairway landings are quickly becoming the new mudrooms of Instagram – and for good reason. They are one of the only spaces in the home that are allowed to just be pretty, without having to do too much to function. The landing at our Brentwood Project is actually one of my favorite spaces in the house. The long hallway was the perfect place for a vintage rug we sourced back at Las Vegas Market and it adds the perfect amount of character to an otherwise plain space. The chunky console anchors the top of the stairs perfectly and I love that the extra storage can hold off-season candles, back up guest toiletries and other items that would normally take up prime real estate.
One of the coolest parts about the landing is that it opens to a spacious upstairs patio. In reality, the patio won’t receive tons of use because it’s upstairs, but I kind of love the idea of having a private outdoor area that’s just for you. Whether it’s checking emails in the morning with your coffee or a glass of wine under the stars at night, dedicated outdoor space is the ultimate luxury. My favorite part of this patio is the hanging succulent garden – it offers the perfect pop of color, is virtually maintenance free and such a fun added texture.
The master bedroom is the ultimate getaway. Our sweet clients wanted something clutter free, light and airy and very neutral. Because the color palette was minimal, we kept things interesting with a custom bed and lots of textures. To make sure this pale bedroom didn’t feel to feminine, we added some stronger materials in the bench at the foot of the bed and oversized dressers to fill the space. The texture of the dressers in the shagreen finish was that final touch we needed to balance out the amazing ceiling and statement lantern.
