Considering the amazing renovation work done on the living room, dining room and kitchen of Nicole and Dan Lucey's Brooklyn brownstone, it's not exactly a surprise that they also showed the same care, intention and design savvy with the family's upstairs bedrooms. What is surprising are the bold design choices in two of the rooms, and the serene space the master bedroom turned out to be.

Nicole and Dan's sophisticated son originally wanted ALL black walls. Nicole was pulling for all white walls.

So the two struck a compromise, and a dynamic half and half mix of Benjamin Moore "Chantilly Lace" and "Onyx." While this paint treatment would have been plenty dramatic enough on its own, the black and white rug with wide stripes adds even more energy to the bedroom.

Dan and Nicole's daughter's bedroom is a perfectly pastel play space that features sophisticated accents. It's a room ideal for a young kid, but also the kind of design that could easily translate to an older girl's taste with a few tweaks. The colorful combo of Benjamin Moore's "After the rain" (a lavender hue) and "Soft Mint" (on the ceiling) are entirely unexpected yet complementary. The gold ceiling stars from Etsy add a youthful spin on the entire room.
