This master bedroom whispers with a tranquil palette of gray, stone, and cream that calms the senses and promotes relaxation. “It’s serene and dreamlike, and feels comfortable,” says Gemma Parker-McKeon, who designed the space with Joan Craig.
The expansive and well-proportioned room is divided into three distinct areas—sleeping, relaxing, and working. Placed to take advantage of the classic fireplace, the seating area includes a slipcovered armchair, an ivory sofa piped in gray, and a glass-topped coffee table. Although they do not match exactly, silk pillows on the sofa allude to walls that are covered in silk fabric that has the look of travertine marble.
“We wanted the room to be sophisticated without being too formal,” notes Craig of the metallic finishes ranging from the silver-leaf bed to mirrors and glass bedside lamps that enhance the room’s quiet chic. “They accessorize the space like the right piece of jewelry accessorizes a couture outfit.”
