A tiny peek into our areas of Zen

For the last couple of years we have designed an eclectic mix of bedrooms from a coral accented fashionista retreat, a neutral based master bedroom to showcase a model apartment unit, to a room that play up the earth tones for a one our favorite bachelors.....just to name a few. 


So when I recently found this bedding company, Parachute Home while sourcing online items for a client, I realized that along the way we have inadvertently included some our personal preferences to our bedroom designs. Nicole's starting point for each bedroom design has always been that it must be a place that provides our clients with their own view on what they feel provides elements of calm, no matter how the remainder of the house was designed. That philosophy might stem from Nicole's own bedroom which shows her daring side, featuring a black wall and mirrored nightstands.That might also explain why she can't sleep in an unmade bed even if she has to make it up right before taking a nap with her adorable son or finally hitting the sack after long day.

On the other hand I'm the total opposite, it's an unmade bed for me all the way. But I might change my mind after lusting after this duvet set from Parachute Home. For me, my bedroom is where I binge on David Baldacci novels, old episodes of Games of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy and The Golden Girls. I think a television was banned from Nikki's bedroom....I didn't believe either until I saw it for myself....LOL. But that all changed when she got married and they realized a shared love for Reality TV.   In contrast, Nicole actually designed my current master bedroom years ago in a soothing sage color. That's after she blew me away with the design she did for my home office that had been empty for about 4 years aside from a lone storage unit I bought from Crate and Barrel. We have been partners in crime ever since. 

However, despite polar opposite views on our personal bedroom designs we equally agree that each space must provide us with moments of Zen where we can refocus and plot our world domination just like Pinky and The Brain. 

We would love to hear how your bedroom reflects your personal style and preferences.

  1. I love all of these bedrooms though each is different. For myself, although my style is modern, I like a little boho. Maybe a coined term would be modern boho??:-)


You know we love to hear from you so yes, holla, holla back.
