The Sunset House: The Bedrooms

Behind the scenes details from our Netflix project.

15 December 2020 -

We’re excited to share more details from The Sunset House project today,

recently featured on Season 1, Episode 2 “Manor House Designs,” of our Netflix show “Dream Home Makeover.”

Today, we’re giving you an inside look into the process and design tips behind the home’s bedrooms.

Watch our webisode below to take a virtual tour, and keep scrolling to shop the pieces from each space!

We’d like to thank our partners at Killowen Construction for helping us bring this project to life.

Design Tip No. 1: Blend light and dark tones

Although we love light and bright spaces, contrasting them with deeper, darker tones can make your space feel cozy and intimate. 

In this space, we had these great vaulted ceilings, and instead of keeping them white, we decided to stain them dark, bringing more dimension to room. 

Try this at home: You don’t need to stain your ceilings to bring tone contrast to your space. If you have a lot of light and bright finishes or pieces in one area, try balancing the look by adding textiles, decor, and even art in deeper hues. 

Design Tip No. 2: Add extra seating to your bedroom

When we have space in a bedroom, we always like to try to add extra seating to bring a retreat-like feeling to the room. 

In this room, we were able to add a sofa underneath the window, adding more texture and function to the look. 

Design Tip No. 3: Don’t be afraid to bring furniture in your bathroom

It might seem counter-intuitive to add a furniture piece in your bathroom, but we say go for it! We love the character and personality it brings. 

In this bathroom, we added a small storage piece, and a really comfortable lounge chair next to the bathtub. 

Try this at home: You don’t need a lot of extra space to add a piece of furniture to your bathroom! Styling something as simple as a small stool next to your bathtub or shower can instantly add form and function. 

Design Tip No. 4: Use elements in your kids’ rooms that can grow with them

When designing kids’ rooms, we try to balance keeping the look playful while still choosing finishes and pieces that will have longevity. We never want our clients to have to re-haul or re-do everything in just a few years.

In these kids’ spaces, we incorporated hints of pattern, color, and texture to strike a match between streamlined and fun.
