Get the Look of This Beautiful and Breezy Home Redesign

The previous owners of this center-hall Colonial had a traditional aesthetic. Its new owners, however, were interested in contemporizing the space, while respecting its inherent Colonial features, as part of their whole-home redesign.

“Our clients wanted a functional space suitable for every-day use, one that was refreshing, approachable, and stylish in design,” says designer Barrett Oswald, of Barrett Oswald Designs, referring to the master bedroom.

“Some of the other rooms have a slightly bolder aesthetic, so we wanted to create a space that brought in more natural and subtle elements while maintaining the home’s overall stylish tone.”

The main footprint of the room was retained but utilized differently in this new design. The bedroom had so much natural light, thanks to the windows on three of the four walls, so that was the starting point and inspiration for Oswald. “We played off of this natural feature by adding elements that felt organic and bright,” she adds. But her favorite part is the cozy sitting area. “The chairs are wide and inviting with a fun touch of leather,” says Oswald. “It offers an extra place to relax and unwind.”

Oswald says every master bedroom needs comfort, acknowledging that everyone has their own vision of what that means. “Once you narrow down the vision, you can style around that inspiration,” says Oswald. “A bedroom will always have the obvious function of providing a place to sleep, so we like to focus more on how to make it ’emotionally functional’ for people. Your bedroom should ideally reflect your own private haven.”

The vision for this bedroom is natural, comfortable, bright, and calming.
