Love these bedrooms,But in the UK we do not have bedrooms this size.Some of these bedrooms are bigger than the whole house in the UK.
So we have to be a bit more savvy in what we have in the bedroom.A bed is the main item in the bedroom then its a case of getting useful storage for all the other things that have to go in the bedroom so it does not look cluttered up.

This room was for Dream Home in the Merchandise Mart. The fireplace is non-functioning. I thought the stacked birch logs would be a good affect.

Hi Richard - I do not recall where the glass piece on top of the mantle came from. The drapery fabric is 100% silk and is from Larsen. It comes in about 6 or 7 color ways. I do not remember the name but is has a subtle abstract leaf pattern. It makes up beautifully for drapery. Good luck - cheers, m

Thanks for such kind words. I typically place recessed lighting a min. of 2'-0" from the wall I am illuminating. Spacing between fixtures varies on many factors, what you lighting, size of recessed fixture and budget. A good rule of thumb is 3'-0" to 4'-0" to centerline.

If there is a good solid transition I think you can make it work. If the rooms are not separated you may not want to think of a more cohesive design.

You can certainly omit the casing for a more contemporary feel - casing bring attention to the opening as well as provides a good transition for finish changes.
