Malibu Architectural

Designer Tracy Murdock truly had a vision with her home; building upon the Asian elements found throughout the home, she completely gutted the upstairs two bedrooms and created a Japanese style master suite with a private balcony. In the master bedroom, the bed which sits on tatami mats was built high upon a mahogany platform to capture the Pacific views and the sound of the waves washing upon the shore.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This room is all decked out in Japanese style but really you need to only add a bed like this to your bedroom to get the feeling that is evoked here. A high-rising platform bed with tatami mats underneath the mattress is comfortable and stylish.
Becky Harris added this to Style Inspiration: Screens
Here the designer incorporated shoji screens in order to attain a Zen Asian feeling in her bedroom.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Homes Full of Far Eastern Influences
Calming influences from Japan extend into this restful bedroom, including shoji screens and carefully framed views of nature.
Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tours: Malibu Architectural
The master bedroom is on the second floor, where one enjoys some of the best views. The bed sits on tatami mats was built high upon a mahogany platform to capture the Pacific views and the sound of the waves washing upon the shore. Note the shoji screen on the right side of this image.
