Last week I featured the living, kitchen, dining and study of this beautiful home, today features the bedrooms and bathrooms.


If I you look back over the past 30 years you will see big changes to bedroom spaces, they are no longer a place simply to rest your head, people want more out of a bedroom space and this means not only walk in robes but seating areas and for some homeowners an office nook. The bedroom today is now a private escape to be able to do a lot of the things you normally do in other areas of a home.

When a bedroom is more than just a sleeping space, little details are what bring it together, so let’s look at these bedrooms and note how the designers, Studio McGee have used detail to create these serene spaces. If you missed the previous post you may want to catch up first…. It’s All About the Detail With Studio McGee – Part 1.

Above: When placing a desk in a bedroom, you want it to blend in and not appear office like, so the choice of desk is important. Think about the style of the room, your bed and  existing furniture and keep the desk small. The pin board in this corner has interesting shaped corners it and works perfectly in this bedroom. The stacked baskets soften the straight lines of the desks legs. A few little details on the desk top plus fresh flowers finish this look.

 Above: A couch is almost a done thing in a bedroom these days, one always needs somewhere to place their clothes or sit to put their shoes on and a small buttoned back sofa placed at the bottom of the bed completes the look. Other details such as the rug and artwork tie this space together.

Above: Detail may be the simplest item such as a beautiful shaped vase or a  more intricate pendant light

Above: It is important not to clutter a space a few items on this bookshelf is all it needs in this child’s room and you can add a few grown up pieces such as the ginger jar and boxes if you like.

Above: Every bedroom should have a chair and in this child’s room is a beautifully detailed buttoned back wing chair with finishing touches of a cushion and soft toy

Above: Simple freestanding shelving units such as this one are easily purchased and add extra storage space to a bathroom. If you want your piece to be unique you can always give it a coat of chalk paint and add a basket or two to hide items on the shelves.

I hope you have enjoyed this beautiful home and as I said earlier, if you missed the previous post, there is a link above. I have also placed a link to Studio McGee in case you want to check out more of their wonderful projects.
