After two years in his Silver Spring condo, Quanti Davis is ready to decorate the master bedroom. Some items on Davis’s wish list: a new dresser, wall art and lighting.
Using Davis’s favorite earth tones, Darlene Sheppard and Caty Tillman suggest new bedding, accessories and a fresh coat of paint to give Davis a warm but masculine space to recharge and relax.
A chair offers a space to read, relax and enjoy the view outside the wall-to-wall glass doors (not pictured).
An upholstered headboard in a deep blue color softens the space while remaining masculine.
A bedside table lamp adds ambient and task lighting.
A patterned rug adds visual interest and focuses attention on the sleeping area.
A long, low dresser is the right scale for a small room but still has plenty of room for clothing and personal items.
New wall art, including faux deer heads, adds unexpected color and character.
Sable brown walls pair well with the duvet and headboard. Try Benjamin Moore’s Weimaraner.
