Studio Roslyn proves that beige-on-beige-on-beige can look spectacular.
We love a crisp, white wall, of course, but this warm, welcoming beige-on-beige-on-beige bedroom from Vancouver’s Studio Roslyn makes a compelling argument for a different kind of neutral.
The suite is located in the condo-filled Olympic Village neighbourhood, and to combat the cold glass and concrete construction at the bedroom windows, the designers leaned hard in the other direction. “We wanted to soften everything,” explains principal Jessica MacDonald (who steers the studio alongside co-founder Kate Snyder).
Up went lush Dedar drapery and a plaster treatment to the column. A looped wool carpet and a custom headboard from millworker Tim Grant bring in further warmth. But there’s balance to the creamy palette that keeps it modern and fresh—MacDonald and co. accented the room with rose, pink and brushed brass. “All together, it’s got a glow,” she says.
