BEFORE AND AFTER MASTER BEDROOM THE BROOKLYN CLOCK TOWER RESIDENCE

BEFORE AND AFTER MASTER BEDROOM THE BROOKLYN CLOCK TOWER RESIDENCE

Our latest project took place among the tallest four-sided clock towers in the world!   Constructed in a modernized Byzantine-Romanesque style, the building has been converted into luxury condominium apartments. 

The W. Family contacted us as after they purchased their second apartment next door so they could join them and form one spacious residence. 

As you will see below along the Before and After - the space has been completely rethinked and redesigned to fully optimise the flow and functions of each space in the apartment. 

FROM LIVING ROOM to MASTER BEDROOM

What was the Living room and kitchen has been fully remodelled into a calming spa-like feel and luxurious Master Bedroom en-suite. We Introduced an elegant fireplace with a unique walnut mantel to the space and it instantly transformed the space from “whatever” to “wow!”. 

FROM KITCHEN TO MASTER BATHROOM

This existed kitchen of the previous apartment has been replaced into a spacious spa-like bathroom to complete the Master Suite.

From Master Bedroom to Playing Room / Guest Room 

After the remodel, what was a dark master bedroom, is now a bright, modern and playful space. It is perfect for playing games, experimenting with crafts and hosting guests. 

TIP:
To integrate traditional and modern design styles into something unique and up-to-date, we used this vintage carpet brought from China that had a sentimental value for our client and framed it!

The Master Bathroom was transformed into a beautiful Guest Bathroom which matches the clean, sleek design of the Guest Bedroom.

Choose an elaborate chandelier or interesting paper shade. Top it off with a ceiling medallion for added flair. You can also get a LED light display on your ceiling. The displays usually depicts outer space with moving lights.

Painted ceilings

Since most everyone has a white ceiling, consider painting your ceiling a color other than white. You can select a color slightly lighter than your wall color, slightly darker than your wall color, one one completely different than your wall color. Consider using a metallic paint on the ceiling in one special room - perhaps the dining room, entry way, powder bath, or master bedroom.

Moldings

You can add moldings to your ceiling. Crown molding is very popular, but you can also add decorative moldings for a more custom look. Ceiling medallions are also popular, especially those that mount underneath chandeliers. Trim can also be placed on the perimeter of the ceiling to create an elegant room or faux tray ceiling. If your room lacks architectural interest, molding can be an inexpensive fix.

Wood beams

For a room with tall ceilings, you can add faux wood beams. The beams will add warmth and character and draw attention to the volume of the room. Wood beams or faux beams can be installed on a ceiling for color and interest. Beams can be found in traditional and rustic house. For a garden theme consider putting a trellis on your ceiling. Beams can be painted the same color as the ceiling or a darker brown or black to make the architectural element pop.

Wall Decal

Wall decals are becoming very popular. There are many options available and many online companies will even do a custom decal to your specifications.

Fabric

Tenting a ceiling adds a dramatic, romantic element to the room. If you're not up for such an extensive project, consider using fabric on a smaller scale. Make use of a canopy bed and drape linen fabric over the top for a modern look. But doesn't this nursery fabric ceiling look amazing!

White bedroom designs

kh-bedroomKelly Hoppen

A white-on-white scheme creates an airy, restful master bedroom. There is nothing more serene and peaceful than a white bedroom.

A great way to create a whole white bedroom is to layer different shades of white and use lots of different textures and shapes. Just imagine... walking in your new bedroom...  a clean line white dresser, the curvy look of a white velvet tufted headboard, a plush cream carpet, fluffy pillows, silky lamp shades and airy curtains... it is all white... fresh, clean and dreamy.

No worries, there are many variant of white! All whites are not snow white. Some are crisp sharp whites, others are softer. You can also use antique whites, very pale creams.

The main thing is to create an environment that soothes your psyche and spread healing vaibrations....

White is also the Feng Shui Color of Purity and Innocence, it represents the fresh snow or the immaculate dress of a beautiful bride...

It will also fill your subconscious with the feng shui energy of ever-expanding possibilities and a bright new future.

Here are some wonderful white bedrooms to inspire you for your design: picture-111
