This sweet Phoenix family of five was expecting their 4th girl and were ready to elevate their master bedroom before her arrival with a local designer. Starting with a completely blank slate, our job was to bring visual interest to an empty canvas. With 12 foot ceilings, we had a lot of empty wall space. Our team created a custom millwork design and added trim on all of the walls for added depth. To play up the incredible ceiling height, the millwork was split in two sections, with two thirds on the bottom panel, one third of the height featured at the top. We custom matched the paint color of the walls to the existing plantation shutters for a monochromatic, timeless look.
Because our clients hadn't even purchased a bed frame yet, we were able to custom tailor the space perfectly for them. We sourced this beautiful linen upholstered king size bed with wide vertical channeling to bring your eye up. It feels well proportioned to the large wall without overwhelming the room. Antique brass articulating sconces were hung above each nightstand, adding to the grand scale of the room. The bedside tables have an exaggerated slant to their shape, adding a bit of whimsy to the otherwise formal space. I styled them with rustic touches from LW Home to add texture and fresh greenery.

One of my favorite parts of the space is the gallery wall we hung above the headboard. It's totally unexpected on the custom trim and makes the perfect focal point above the bed. To ensure each piece of artwork hung evenly despite the trim, we used an extra long nail so that it can lay on top of the trim. For the heavier pieces that aren’t in studs we used a wall anchor screwed in first. The mismatched frames are all coordinated with similar style mattes and we kept the color palette consistent throughout. I love the mix of more modern abstract pieces, watercolor landscapes and photography.
We anchored the space with a 9x12 area rug (discontinued, but you can shop a similar favorite here) and this oversized gilded mirror. To put the finishing touches on the space, I layered in a combination of batik striped pillows and a marigold lumbar. The woven suede bench tops the master bedroom off with the perfect amount of luxe texture.
