I have always wanted a bedroom with a window seat and bookcases. It took awhile, but I finally got it. I love the light and airiness of this room. In the winter, I love to sit on my window and watch the snow fall. Trees hug my building and my unit is on the third floor. So, in the summer, when the trees are in bloom, I sit at the window seat and watch the squirrels and birds play in the branches.
It feels peaceful, light and airy - and right before the sun goes down it gets the most amazing golden twilight. I love my little bunch of Cambodian marionette dolls hanging out on the sofa greeting me every morning. And I adore the view of the Manhattan skyline.
I love this bachelor bedroom. The atmospheric palette adapts to changes in light—The gray linen is clean and is complimented by the gray flor carpet tiles. The design is subtle but not shy, with accessories like the ceramic moose trophy & Edison bulbs. The reclaimed wide plank hardwood floor warms the space.
I love that I took the opportunity to allow the space to evolve over time to what it is today. My room has had many incarnations before this point, but none felt right. My goal ultimately was to create a warm, comfortable, luxurious and layered space that would be my refuge from the urban chaos outside my doors. I've incorporated items that really provide a sense of calm to me; family photos, mementos of cultural significance, souvenirs-things that put a smile on my face every time I enter the room... I have to admit a fabulous mattress and amazing bed linens don't hurt either.
I love the simplicity and change from my more "decorated" apartment, it's very calming and relaxing. I'm especially in love with the paint color - the perfect neutral gray in a shade just this side of white. I tried to stay within a black, gray, white and wood/natural palette, with color coming from my collection of books.
White bedding is one of the safest bets you can make when outfitting a bedroom. White never goes out of style, it coordinates with just about everything and you can introduce subtle pattern on top of it with a cute throw. What is not love?
