Traditional Home: Pacific Palisades Master Bedroom


For this Pacific Palisade’s Estate master bedroom suite, the owners desired a Victorian-era aesthetic on a grand scale. Sarah Barnard designed a California King sized bed and coordinating nightstands made of American Walnut with bronze hardware. Carved by master craftsmen in Los Angeles, the raised panels, fluted carvings, and intricate floral details define the one-of-a-kind Victorian-inspired bed explicitly created for this home. Antique brass bedside sconces with articulating arms allow for comfortable reading in bed. Three antique ceramic birds sit among fresh cut pink ranunculus on the master bedroom nightstand.

A few favorite books, a vintage brass cat and a black pottery vase filled with white hydrangeas adorn the custom American Walnut built-in bar providing easy access to snacks and beverages within the master bedroom suite.


Decadent silk velvet, wool mohair, and cashmere textiles were used to ensure a deliciously tactile master bedroom suite. The original brass chandelier restored with custom shades covered in grey silk threads. A luxurious magnolia leaf garland drapes across the master bedroom fireplace mantle, framing a painting by artist Kevin Moore. White tulips set in a clear glass vase brighten the antique side table, a brass swing-arm floor lamp, and a deep rose velvet bergère chair.

Sarah Barnard designs healthy, happy, personalized spaces that are deeply connected to nature and art.
