Mixing Styles in The Master

Navigating one of the trickiest design challenges.

14 November 2019 -

Mixing your taste with your partner’s is easily one of the trickiest design challenges to navigate. It’s less about compromise and more about balance. When it comes to implementation, we always like to look at the big picture and approach it holistically. Here’s a look into how we did this in the McGee bedroom:

Thank you to our sponsors, The Shade Store, Metrie, and Lemco Design, for our beautiful floor, window and wall treatments. Details to come in our reveal!

“In the master bedroom, we started with the bed, the channel back is classic and timeless and pairs with any style of furniture. To balance both of our styles, we contrasted the deep colors on the bed and nightstand with more feminine, light, and bright styling on the bed.” – Shea McGee

Streamlined with a sophisticated, linear tufted detail, our Hoffman Bed was designed in-house to withstand the years in both wear and style. Its frame covered in upholstery is entirely customizable with our collection of fabrics, creating a look that’s unique to you and your space. With four solid oak legs and a proven kiln-dried process for quality, the piece maintains added support and durability.

Box-spring is recommended. Styled image is shown in Moss Linen.

Our dresser in the light oak finish contrasts the darker furniture while the artwork and styling balances the masculine elements.

With their sophisticated, intricate design, our Huxton Night Stand and Dresser (coming soon) look good from every angle. Both functional and detailed, their etched grid patterns draw interest while brass pulls on the end of each drawer bring elevated detailing. Finished with a unique boxed leg detail, the duo creates a light and airy moment in any bedroom, from traditional to modern.

Top Tip: When it comes to choosing pieces for your master, include your partner in the process and choose pieces that you both love. Mixing and matching styles makes it all the more interesting.

“We had this really great corner to work with next to our fireplace, and we wanted to bring some height into the room, so we did this swivel wingback chair and added in this really cool modern lamp (Syd’s favorite) to balance out some of the traditional elements in the room.” – Shea McGee

One of our favorite ways to make a brand new space feel lived in is through layering decor and textiles to create a curated yet cozy look. Pairing eclectic accents with classic staples is a fool-proof styling tip we use time and time again.
