Project Overview:

Transformed from a builder-basic white bedroom, this haven features a warm planked ceiling, a bold black sputnik-style light, and textured natural wallpaper. The upholstered king bed adds softness, complemented by a unique art piece on the focal wall. Cozy corners, motorized shades, and decorative drapery complete this refined master retreat.

The transformation of this builder-basic white bedroom into a masculine haven began with a warm planked ceiling and a striking black sputnik-style light fixture. Highly textured natural wallpaper and dramatic wall lamps infused the room with character. The upholstered king bed added a touch of softness, balanced by its masculine wood and metal details.

A unique metal art piece adorned the focal bed wall, and a two-tone dressing anchored the TV. A comfortable chair, paired with a floor lamp and distinctive accent table, created a cozy corner. Motorized shades and decorative drapery panels framed the windows, completing the refined and comfortable master retreat.


* The prestigious Donayre Award is named for Carol Donayre Bugg, ASID, retired company vice president. The competition entries are judged by other Decorating Den Interiors’ franchise owners.
