What we wouldn’t give to get some beauty sleep in these dreamy bedrooms submitted by the Dwell community.
From the architect: “Employing the use of contrast in a historic neighborhood and as a means to amplify natural light, the design juxtaposes opposing elements to explore the relationship between light and dark, old and new. The primary design challenge was to increase natural light in the space, accomplished through both physical and perceptual means. Contrasting elements are placed in proximity to visually intensify the natural light spilling down from the large openings above. The monochromatic palette highlights the house’s architectural forms, and is animated by the family’s collection of colorful objects, furniture, art, books, and toys, as well as the original stained glass window and views to the outdoors.”
From the architect: “Nestled into a dense, wooded shoreline site, this intimate retreat serves as a gathering space for friends and family throughout the year, but takes particular advantage of the temperate Pacific Northwest summers. Located near the main house on a site accessed by boat, Pole Pass is situated to hug the dense woods while directing views out over the meadow and nearby harbor to the Salish Sea.”
