Bedroom of bliss, motivating makeshift office or something in-betweenwe've got you covered.
For some of us, WFH can look like WFB (work from bed), which means these rooms deserve just as much, if not more attention than our new dedication to the home office. Whether you've currently curled up in comfort, or dreaming of that reality from the in-person workplace, we've collected 7 bedrooms to inspire, from golden glitz to minimal zen.
HGTV host Sabrina Smelko showed us her Squamish home, including her second favourite room, next to the kitchen, her master bedroom. The space encapsulates a sense of calm, with a direct view of Mt. Murchison that influenced the neutral colours and the extra mirrors reflecting the natural light. For a full break down of the space, check out the article here.
For this Kitsilano condo, designer Annaliesse Kelly of AK Design focused on a modern hotel vibe for the minimalist main floor master bedroom, with specific attention to storage. Walnut paneling adds warmth to the room, and subtle details create space with a king-size storage bed and bedside tables that are large enough to double as dressers. See all the details here.
A few years back, HGTV host and real estate entrepreneur Todd Talbot sold his Lions Bay homebut not before we got to see the 7-year project: a bright and airy master bedroom. The buyer ended up wanting to keep this specific room entirely, and we can see why. From the pendant chandelier from CF Interiors to the custom headboard (a solid slab of acacia, sanded and stained by Talbot himself), it’s a dream come true. Get the rest of the behind-the-scenes here.
Earlier last year, we saw colour making a comeback, especially from Jamie Banfield of Jamie Banfield Design. This bedroom set the mood with a prominent feature wall painted in Benjamin Moore's Nocturnal Gray. To see more of how colour transformed our Trend Watch, click here.
Kalu Interiors designer Aleem Kassam’s two-bedroom Yaletown apartment is the epitome of grand elegance, and an obvious contender for our 2019 Home of the Year. The master bedroom's use of mirrors elevated the glitz and gold, from the custom mirrors above the pocket doors on either side of the bed to the ornate gold Louis XIV mirror as a headboard. To see our in-depth look at the room and the rest of the pad, click here.
Susan Bilbey of Susan Bilbey Design was entranced by the Dinesen flooring she saw in a European art gallery, and knew she had to use it to create a feature wall in a future project. This Vancouver home's master bedroom ties in the warmth and serenity of the space with this slab of fir flooring behind the master bed. For the full breakdown of how this flooring found its way throughout the house, click here.
Designer Robert Bailey of Robert Bailey Interiors embraced his devotion to minimalism in this Vancouver forever-home. The bedroom specifically accentuates the luxurious views with the foundational Zen design. The details create an artisanal feel that’s trendy for years to come. More photos available here.
Kelly Deck of Kelly Deck Design brought her luxury home expertise to this 600 square foot one-bedroom. The open concept Kentwood flooring allowed for the enveloping transition between the living area and the bedroom. For a sense of privacy and separation, huge sliding screens were created with a custom powder coated aluminum frame. For more photos, see the full article here.
