Before & After: East Bay Master Retreat
Niche Interiors was tasked with creating a master retreat for two busy parents in the East Bay. After focusing their energy on creating kid’s rooms and play spaces for their energetic young boys they were in desperate need of a sophisticated adult space. We were thrilled to tackle this project for such hardworking and deserving parents!
Before: The room lacked depth, softness and warmth. The generous space was sparsely filled with furniture on one end with a huge void at the foot of the bed. This room was begging for a seating area!
After: A chocolate velvet upholstered bed anchors one side of the room and a pair of deep armchairs and ottoman create a cozy lounge area in front of the fireplace. Natural elements are introduced with textural grasscloth and capiz shell light fixtures.
Tranquil palette. Our clients were drawn to warm, neutral spaces without much contrast. We kept the overall color palette to taupe, chocolate, ivory, and seafoam. A mix of velvet, subtle patterns, and natural fibers creates a soothing and sumptuous space to unwind. We introduced small doses of persimmon for an unexpected pop of vibrancy. This warm hue can be found throughout the bedroom in pillows, flowers, and artwork.
With the new seating area our clients can’t seem to keep their boys out of here! We’re not entirely sure if this is a good or bad thing. Either way, this room has received the stamp of approval from all family members. To us, that’s a job well done!
