Inspired by Mid-Century architect Luis Barragan’s belief in vibrant color and shapes, Drewett Works’ minimalistic architecture, paired with our own modern aesthetic, we wanted the space to reflect a modern, clean and natural feel with a hint of playfulness and neutrality. By using clean lines and gentle organic curves, we fused different materials and shapes to achieve a timeless modern bedroom.
We incorporated white and pale neutrals with bold, colorful accents adding depth and contrast while inviting natural light to filter through sheer window treatments. Our color palette derived from the vintage canvas art—pulling these bold colors and shapes into the neutral palette. Elements reminiscent of the Mid-Century Modern characteristics, including nontraditional materials such as mixed wood and metal elements were incorporated to warm up the pale neutral walls. Simple lines in the furnishings compliment the subtle geometric patterns, while keeping with a mostly muted color palette allowing the vibrant accents to add personality.
We designed the bed and nightstands to interlock and create a sense of a form-meets-function feel, while adding pops of vibrant colors, a fun desk chair and whimsical yet bold light fixtures to add an element of playfulness. The modern furniture complimented by an iconic Warren Planter-style lounge chair symbolizes chic sophistication from this era. Aiming to have a sense of structure with geometric elements and introducing personality through art, lighting, bedding and accessories, we anchored the space while fusing the overall design.
