This bedroom is in a mid-century modern home in Duke Forest. The owners wanted to update the space and their primary objective was better lighting. To address this, we installed a mix of sophisticated recessed LEDs and pendant lights to provide lighting for all of their needs: general, reading, and mood. Counter-intuitively we painted the walls a dramatic dark gray color, making the lush forest setting, visible through the large windows, the focal point. Custom bedside tables, made from blackened steel, were commissioned by a local metalworker. Asian inspired art and accessories, plus a natural linen duvet help create a peaceful retreat.
