Get the Look: Serene Sophisticated Bedroom

Serene is just one of the words that pops to mind instantly when you see this gorgeous bedroom designed by Studio McGee. Some of the others are tailored, refined, fresh and well, maybe even perfect. The husband-and-wife designers Syd and Shea McGee created this retreat for the Utah mountain vacation home of some California clients. The design is a masterclass in getting scale and decorating with neutrals right. The room features vaulted ceilings and the view through the windows is of vast mountainous countryside. The king size bed with extra tall headboard, tall bedside lamps, generous side tables and art work together to make the headboard wall into the rroom's rightful focal point. A bench at the foot of the bed finishes off the vignette but adds yet more volume since it seems an extension of the bed itself. Underfoot, wide plank scrubbed matte wood floors are warned up with a soft wool carpet. The symphony of beiges, creams and whites bring variety and depth to the scheme, while the black framed art and window pane check pillows punctuate the room with geometry.
