Park View Pied-à-terre: Master Bedroom

Sarah-barnard-design-modern-bedroom.jpg

This master bedroom is perched high above Virginia Avenue Park in Santa Monica. Inspired by antique furnishings, most of the furniture in this home was custom made of sustainable materials by local craftsmen. Pairing contemporary elements, such as the geometric inlaid headboard with antique furnishings and fixtures creates a design both modern classic. Solid bronze drawer pulls made by French artisans compliment the locally made antique reproductions. The vintage Austrian wall sconces (c.1960) add a subtle warmth to the crisp white space.

The French Country stylings are balanced with both rustic and minimalist tendencies giving this master bedroom a cozy and contemporary feeling. A portrait painted by artist Brian Johnson sits atop a custom desk made in petite proportions. A Himalayan rock salt lamp adds warming illumination to the compact workspace. Elemental accents and organic materials are the basis for this environmentally conscious master bedroom renovation.

California Dreamers: Little Girl's Blue, Pink & Green Bedroom

Sarah.barnard.design.little.girls.bedroom.jpg

Here we have a little girl's bedroom in pink, pale blue and grass green. The fuchsia bench features hidden storage to tuck away toys and blankets. Antique white furnishings and bedding are the perfect pairings with a host of pink, blue and green accents. A re-purposed chandelier finds new life with a simple visit to the painter's studio. A desk once belonging to her older sister gets a personalized makeover for the youngest girl in the house. The delightfully delicate clear Lucite chair adds a feminine whimsy to the pale blue desk.

Vintage hobnail milk glass and pretty pink ranunculus add a delicate beauty to this little girl's desk. An old brass rocking horse from the 1960s sits among a collection of other delightful works of art, a unicorn sculpture from an artist in Slovenia and a watercolor by Klay Arsenault.

Sheer white drapery panels frame the four posters of the bed in this little girl's room. On the bedside table, a charming ceramic vase in the shape of a friendly kitten wears a silly hat of tiny pink ranunculus. Handmade porcelain flowers cluster together in this pretty wall sconce featured bedside. The view out the window is a beautiful backdrop for an oversized reading chair in antique white and fuchsia pink. In pink, green and white, delicate pom-pom fringe trim the edge of this custom drapery.
