client project: twenty-third st. master bedroom

Part of a series showcasing different client projects by individual rooms to share a glimpse of the design process

The master bedroom of Twenty-Third St. needed to function both as a bedroom & workspace since my clients work remotely (pre-pandemic) and the rest of their home is already designated for other purposes. Luckily, the layout of the room is quite long so we were able to section off a portion and create a cozy work & lounge area.

We continued the mood of the living room with a clean, modern aesthetic and Mid-Century touches. The finishes of the furniture pieces are all in a dark walnut stain and warm neutral fabrics. Colors, patterns, and textures are displayed in the ceramic lamps, pillows, and other decorative accents (more on selecting elevated decor here).

Two ledge shelves are mounted side by side above the headboard to absorb some of the wall space and layer in artwork. I love having this type of shelving so that you can switch out artwork/magazines/books easily when you want to freshen up the look of a room. Having two shelves side by side makes it feel more elongated and elegant than staggering shorter shelves.

Who knew that the new norm for almost everyone would be to convert part of their homes into a full-time WFH space due to the pandemic? Have you needed to convert any part of your home into an office for work? If so, I’d love to know the different challenges and successes you’ve had in adjusting your space to accommodate your needs.
