Six Dramatic Bedrooms | 1stdibs

In a Manhattan high-rise, The Archers’ Richard Petit created a guest suite that brims with elegance and allure. “The apartments in this Robert A.M. Sternbuilding are classically proportioned and detailed and echoes the work of Italian architect Rosario Candela,” says Petit. “We created our version of a Sicilian grandmother’s bedroom as a nod to Candela’s roots.” The result is an enchanting hideaway featuring walls lined in silk denim, a headboard in a Rose Cummings damask and vintage Murano lamps.

Located in a San Francisco Victorian residence that had been transformed decades ago into a classic Italianate by architect Julia Morgan, this master bedroom once served as the home’s ballroom. “The design vision entailed reimagining the room for a modern couple while still keeping its original soul intact,” says Nicole Hollis, who preserved the existing herringbone floors, period molding and marble fireplace.

“This client bristled when I showed him a conservative scheme, and he told me to go wild,” recalls designer Ernest De La Torre of this bedroom inside a philanthropist’s Manhattan penthouse. “He was happiest in view of water, so I made the room aquatic in tone and feel.” De La Torre designed the bed, the resin-fronted nightstands and the straw-marquetry panels. “It involved splitting a reed of straw, flattening it and applying one piece at a time,” he says of the backdrop.

“I wanted the overall feel of the master bedroom to be sexy, warm, and inviting with a masculine touch,” says designer Nicole Fuller of this lavish retreat in a Manhattan apartment. “The masks were a big part of my inspiration for the overall design and palette of the room,” says Fuller, who designed the metallic leather bed.

In renovating a 3,000-square-foot home in Hollywood, California, designer Pam Shamshiri created a space that captures her client’s modern aesthetic mixed with a ’60s sensibility.

In her Kips Bay Decorator Show House bedroom, Susan Ferrier had the vision of designing an elegantly eclectic hideaway for an archaeologist, channeling an Explorers Club vibe. She was inspired by a large-format Ammonite drawing that once hung in her office, which informed the rest of the furnishings and accents. Meanwhile a set of lithographs from the 1800s inspired the moody color palette. Photo by Alan Barry Photography
