Project: Malibu Bedroom

Recently, I was contacted by U.K. furniture maker Next to design a Malibu-inspired bedroom featuring one of their fabulous wardrobes. I immediately zero'ed in on the Cuba Oak wardrobe, which has varigated wood and simple, clean lines. I designed the master bedroom with an intention to utilize some natural elements and colors found at the beach (i.e. wood, mother of pearl, and stone), but to have a defined air of chic sophistication.  The Next Wardrobe and Floor Lamp are a nod to the driftwood my daughter loves to collect. The rug reminds me of the patterns in the sand at low tide and the wall color is a soothing blue-green, one of many colors in the ocean. A classic bed and side chair give some structure to the room and the side table adds a little touch of glamourous gold. The beaded light fixture injects some bohemia to the space and I love the unusual shape of the mother of pearl mirror. I can picture this room with a large glass wall and deck, opening out to the Pacific Ocean and views of our beautiful California coast. A girl can dream!!
