ASID Design Excellence Award - Singular Space, 1st place

This master bedroom addition features a neutral palette balanced with textures and subtle patterns to create a calm space and highlight the owners' collection of African art. Two layers of motorized window shades are recessed into the soffits to provide light control. A new linear gas fireplace, recessed TV, lighting, audio, and motorized window coverings are all controlled via remote from the bedside.

I asked the owner and she tried to find the source of the painting of the nude over the bed. Unfortunately, the trail has gone cold. She commissioned it thru another designer many years ago and that designer has since retired. If you want a source for something similar contact my art consultant, Donna Niemann, donnaniem@earthlink.net, I know she will connect you with someone who can do something similar.

The project contractor built a niche for their specific new tv. This was a new wall (not existing framing/drywall) so we were able to easily accommodate the exact dimensions (including depth) of the tv in the planning process.

sorry for the delay! I don't get alerted to questions when they come in. These were custom made so I'm sorry that won't be much help. The striped shams with the fringe trim were made with a Kravet fabric. Fun fact though: the stools were from (sshhhh) target.com and we re-upholstered them with an embossed faux leather and added a nailtrim. The stool/bench is called the Threshold x-bench and is only $80

Thanks--the baskets are from the homeowner's collection from their travels to Africa. Are you in Phoenix? If so try calling these places first to check: Indus Imports, Green Goddess (on Bell Rd), and Global Home (on Indian School Rd) . If not, try classichomefurnishings.com.

okay, you might raise your eyebrows on this one but I actually got those at www.target.com and re-upholstered them in a faux ostrich leather and added nailheads. I just did the same for another project but used a red mohair fabric--it's a great little bench and only about $70 I think? I'll attach a photo of the other ones I did recently for another home

Fireplace With Recessed TV - We recently did a similar installation in our living room. The fireplace is beautiful, however, there's a small gap between the frame and the wall. Heat is rising through that gap and the wall becomes extremely hot. When we contacted the professional installer, he informed us to not worry (do have heat retardant materials installed) but we may have problems with the paint later on. Have you ran into this with these installations and what have you done to avoid that problem? Thank you.

I asked the contractor that built that project and he said it shouldn't be an issue. He said the fireplace manufacturer supplies a wall material that goes around the perimeter of the fireplace and then you need to use a fire rated drywall but the heat is normal. The more sheen a paint has, the more pliable it may be, and therefore more resistant to showing wear/peeling, etc but worst case, you have to repaint in a few years if the fireplace is used often and does cause a paint issue.
