10. Natural Light Meets Organic Materials
In the remodel of a 1940s ranch house
in Los Angeles, designer Shannon Ggem
updated the master bedroom with wellness in mind. Organic linen bedding in soft colors complements the channel-tufted upholstered headboard that extends all the way to the ceiling. Green accents from the sofa at the foot of the bed and living plants enliven the mostly neutral palette and attract the eye.
Natural light streams in from two existing windows, which the designer framed with light-filtering fabric. “This is a designer trick — I used the window treatments to give it a more centered look,” Ggem says. She and her design team also re-covered the fireplace, plastering it in a hand-troweled striated pattern.Wall color: Stone Hearth, Benjamin Moore
