2018-2019 Designer of the Year: Bedrooms $30,000 & Under

Winner: Tanna Edler, Tanna by Design Interiors, Washington
The clients wanted a ‘he – she’ space, somewhat gender neutral, where both felt like it was designed with each of their personalities in mind.  As for aesthetics, he was interested in rough metals, old woods and a ‘not-so-colorful’ palette.  She wanted a hint of glamour, a feminine touch and maybe a ruffle or two.

The designer found magic in the adhesive reclaimed wood wall treatment.  It looked so rustic, yet was smooth to the touch. The casual appeal and our purposeful plan to make this room not to seem unapproachable, was realized. The perfect palace to rest at night and rise in the morning.

A local artisan customized a locally, harvested cedar wood plank into a beautiful, live-edge bench. It was finished in a non-toxic, beeswax and adds that ‘outdoor’ character we wanted for the room. An aged, roughly finished metal hung from the ceiling; a chandelier, the perfect accent.

The client's motto "I can never have too much glam!" was interpreted in a sophisticated way to create this master bedroom masterpiece. This oasis has been the client's perfect luxury retreat.

The original 10,000 square foot house that this room was designed for had major structural engineering issues that delayed the move in for over a year. The client purchased an intermediary home, where we implemented the majority of the furnishings as the space allowed. The one room the client did not want to sacrifice was her bedroom retreat and we fit almost everything originally planned for the other house in this one.

The designer wanted to create an environment for my client that was airy, serene and elegant by using a palette of whites, creams, pale blues, silvers, and brushed gold. The room highlights the newly dressed queen bed with a custom headboard and tailored bedskirt for a husband and wife to retire to at the end of a busy day.

The existing bedroom pine armoire and dresser would not have been the designer's choice to use but it was required by the client. The designer addressed this by placing the focus on other elements in the room. The pine armoire's depth was reduced by 10" by a skilled carpenter and reduced the hulk of the piece.
