natural & modern style...



Creating a room for more than one person (especially a master bedroom) is a bit of a give and take from all sides.  Chip & Sherrie have found that middle ground in the rest of their home and including living through a major kitchen remodel!  They gave up in their master bedroom...THAT'S where I come in.

Their style: QUITE MINIMAL.  They love to travel all over the world and even though they love the clean lined, minimal look they do NOT want it to look stark.  Both Chip & Sherrie want a warm, comfortable room that has a bit of eclectic/ethnic character.  Color, texture, and lighting is key.  They also need a blackout curtain and a bit more overhead lighting.

This is a fun, young couple with two beautiful kids.  They have a real zest for life that can sometimes get a bit hectic.  Their bedroom needed to be a cozy, zen-like retreat.  It was a blast to work with them.

The beginning of the solution was for them to go to the RMS site and pick some inspirations and they certainly did.

-RENE had a great canopy bed that they both gravitated towards.  They loved the simple, clean lined style.  Rene's bedroom had many elements that really spoke to Chip & Sherrie's style and Rene was full of great advice and encouragement for them.  

-MATT & MICHELE's wood slat ceiling was so cool and they were great.  They did much of the reno work themselves and were incredibly encouraging.  Sherrie & Chip wanted a different version of the same idea for their bedroom.

-STACI & GREG really opened up their dining room with their new French Doors.  They are simple, elegant and the exact thing that Sherrie & Chip need in their bedroom.

Jared, Jason, Jen, Ron, Jacob & Ivana made the natural & modern style come to life with their skill, humor and focus!  As always, I am indebted to them for all their hard work...ALSO, a special "shout out" to KRIS QUINN and her creative ways.  I brought her raw fabric and she made the black out drapes/sheers beautifully & with grace....THANK YOU KIDS!
