Pitch Perfect

What a test!

This master bedroom suite in the Chicago suburb of Lake Forest ranks among the most challenging we have encountered. So many of the design decisions were based on the unusually steep pitch of the ceiling in the bedroom and ensuite bathroom and the awkward spring points that resulted. Despite those challenges we were able to give the clients what they wanted, including a caramel and gray color palette for the bedroom and a lot of marble in the bathroom! To the bedroom we also added a chaise, fluted media console and bench at the foot of the existing bed, while in the bathroom we enlarged the shower and included a stand-up vanity. Just call it Pitch Perfect!
