Airy colonial inspired master bedroom

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on November 27, 2016

I have always loved blending different decorating styles. When we moved into this apartment a little more than a year ago this large airy master brought in the same open and relaxed California feel that I loved while living in LA. Marrying that with all the colonial influences that I came across in India and Bangalore became the inspiration for this room!

The first element I worked on in this space were the lavender linen curtains. The linen fabric and lighter color bring home the bright and airy feel I wanted to reinforce. I always knew I wanted a colonial style cane back four poster bed, but it was hard to come by. While there were many four posters I came across they didn’t really have that vintage charm and the colonial feel I was looking for. And then on one of my shopping trips I bumped into Thar – the furniture store in Indiranagar and found this bed hidden away in a corner! Refinished in a glowing teak this bed brings in the vintage colonial look beautifully…..it may not be a four poster and I feel that adds to the openness of the space.

On another day shopping for white dinnerware at Adams near Russell market I stumbled into this tiny little antique shop with dusty old furniture and spotted those marble top nightstands….perfect nightstands for the tall bed and the marble top brightens things up!

I finished off with my favorite seagrass reading chair and a pouf  alongside a tall floor length mirror for all those dress up days! Adding a simple blue n white cotton rug, blue n white bed linen, patterned pillows and blue glass bottle bedside lamps bring the whole space together!

Here are a few shots of the room…..look up the bedrooms section of our portfolio page for more pictures!
