The Passage beach-style-bedroom
 

The Passage

Before Siemasko + Verbridge got their hands on this house, it was a convoluted maze of small rooms and skinny hallways. The renovation made sense of the layout, and took full advantage of the captivating ocean views. The result is a harmonious blend of contemporary style with classic and sophisticated elements. The “empty nest” home is transformed into a welcoming sanctuary for the extended family of kids and grandkids.

love the door paint! - We are painting our antique home's master bedroom and I'm stumped as to what colors...my style is eclectic - room has gorgeous 6"molding, 6 windows & 6 doors with light wood floors. Love the white wall but would love some sort of visual color interest...perhaps the doors??

Thanks for your question. This door is actually white, just looks darker because of the shadow in the other room. We do like the idea of your interior doors being a different color other than the typical white. We recommend you choose your color wisely and go with a neutral color that works with the whole house.

What would you pair the antique trunk with on the opposite bedside - I have a steel reading queen bed. On one side is the antique trunk. What contemporary piece would you put on opposite side of the bed?

Thanks for your question. We would say either a zinc nightstand or a mirrored piece, something that will pair nicely with the trunk but also introduce another material for visual interest.

Thanks for your question. The fabric for the headboard was existing to the client and we used it in this application.

Thanks for the question Khebard. Unfortunately, we don't have the information on the lamp. It was a last minute pick and the designer can't recall where it was purchased from.

Thanks for your question Shedamm. Choosing a color for any room can be a daunting process. We try to stay away from suggesting colors on here because so much can come into play. There are many variables that can change the tone and look of the actual color, such as lighting and its surroundings. We would suggest that if you are already working with a clay terracotta wall that it might be best to stick with other neutral colors and earth tones. You can always add a splash of color with some accessories too. Hope that helps!

You can buy all the parts at http://www.grandbrass.com . They have thousands of parts. Look at the Flange, Swivel, Armback, pipe, Arm, and lamp socket Sections. You can add your own personal touch and make something different and unique. Its easy to do it yourself. Read the help page.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A vintage trunk and a suzani add style to this guest room, while the white walls give it the relaxed feel of a Scandinavian modern home. "We had lots of help sourcing the best items from Billy Cotton, a New York City–based industrial designer," says Verbridge. "He helped us separate the great sources from the rest of them."To the left is a closet that doubles as a passageway to a bathroom. Because this room serves as a guest room, the clients had the luxury of outfitting the new, large closet with the bureau, mirror and vase.
Danyelle Mathews added this to 8 Resourceful Nightstand Alternatives
Old trunks make great nightstands because of the instant character they bring to a space, and they're a nice, big storage option for those of us with smaller spaces.
3. Dilute the effect with neutrals. Two separate Orientals, plus a global-print blanket tossed over the headboard, are separated by generous swaths of white wall paint and hardwood flooring to keep them from overwhelming each other.
Becky Harris added this to Give This Style the Old College Try
Use a vintage trunk as furniture. Do kids still use trunks to pack for college today? I have no idea, but we did. When you don't have much furniture, they make great nightstands, coffee tables and even extra seating in the dorm, and they do at home now, too. Check out some great steamer trunksShow your colors: Do you have anything around the house that honors the university you attended or was inspired by collegiate style? Let us know in the Comments section.
4. Dress up casualness with elegance. An elegant brass wall lamp brings a modern feel to the casual bohemian vibe of this space.
