Dream Home: Design Report - The Bedroom by Matt Lorenz

Janel Laban
Sep 19, 2007

Room: Bedroom
Designer: Matt Lorenz
Inspiration: luxury textures, unexpected finishes

Favorite ideas to steal:

  • super shiny white glazed porcelain tile as a wallcovering
  • matching mod transparent glass pendants hung low over the two nightstands
  • floor to ceiling drapes surrounding the room
  • fresh flowers on the nightstands
  • (At the Dream Home preview, each of the designers spoke to the press about their inspiration, design ideas and sources for their rooms. We're going through our notes to do "design reports" for some of the rooms over the next few days.)

    More of Matt's inspirations and ideas:

  • an antique foo dog sculpture on a pedestal overlooks the room
  • lush, luxury textures: fine Italian linens, silk rug, leather floor tiles
  • drapes as architecture as well as light control
  • patterned leather on the x-base benches
  • calm, yet dramatic colors used throughout
  • a 1940's bright, colorful framed painting


  • Wall Tile: Andy Blick for Ann Sacks
  • Leather floor tiles and patterned leather for benches: Edelman
  • Iron Foo Dog: Pagoda Red
  • Bedding Fabric: Holly Hunt
  • Custom Area Rug: Hokanson
  • Pendants: Nessen Corona
