Actually there isn't a ceiling light. The renovation work to this room was quite minimal. We redesigned the master closet and added a bookshelf with custom TV shelf that would be to the right of this image. The windows were fixed and the room was repainted, but alas, no ceiling fixture.

The walls are DKC-22 and the trim is DKC-51 in an Alkyd Satin finish - both from the Donald Kaufman Collection by Pratt & Lambert.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Slanted walls and dormers made for an already-cozy master bedroom, which received a light makeover. Windows were repaired and walls were repainted, while storage was enhanced with a reconfigured closet and new built-in drawers and shelves contained within a knee wall (not shown; opposite the bed). Knee walls are common on the second floor of Capes. Instead of having the of the room extend all the way to where the roofline meets the floor, they cut off this space at about three to four feet high. "There are little triangles behind knee walls that can be used for shelves or drawers," Smith says.
Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Bedrooms on Houzz
A dormer window and slanted walls create a snug nook for a bed in this Cape Cod–style room. Antiques and layers of bedding make it inviting.See the rest of this home
