In the master bedroom, the earth tones
repeat, as does the blending of materials:
textured grass wallpaper, ship lathe, and
quality lighting fixtures for an effect that
he calls her “shabby chic tendencies” and
what she calls “a comforting feeling from
the mixing of textures and elements.” Most
of the wall and ceiling fixtures were found
at Lowe’s, but the couple emphasizes that
they don’t seeks brands as much as a look.
To balance the room’s various materials,
the couple whitewashed the ship lathe to
balance the tones of the wallpaper and the
two painted walls: the effect is restful.
On either side of the king bed, outfitted with a leather headboard, are wall
sconces also purchased at Lowe’s. To keep
a crisp look in the master, the couple
outfitted the two windows with blinds
instead of drapes.
“We love to work and make a home
our own with the design elements that
we choose,” she says, adding “we invest
a lot of sweat equity, but we work really
well together: our styles of work and our
aesthetic choices complement each other.
And when he wants to do something too
crazy, I bring him back down to earth.”
