CREATE A GLORIOUS MASTER SUITE

Cold winter months bring out our natural (and naturally imposed) tendency to “nest” and bask in beautiful interior surroundings. Rather than traveling to a luxury spa to be pampered by strangers, Paul Feiten of Paul Feiten Design shares his tips for creating a peaceful retreat in the privacy of your own home.

Paul Feiten Bedroom
To create the hotel suite and “spa” feeling, introduce a comfortable seating area for relaxing. A muted damask patterned carpet and soft blue walls add serenity to this space that adjoins the master bath.

One emerging design trend he has witnessed is for homeowners to create a luxurious master suite, extraordinarily appointed with fixtures and design elements typically found in five- star hotels, in their own homes. Using existing space within their homes, Paul often transforms what used to be spare bedrooms and closets to create 1,000 sq. ft. and larger bedroom retreats that include sofa seating areas, large screen televisions, oversized soaking and whirlpool tubs, saunas and more.

“My clients return home from their travels and ask for master suites that can provide resort accommodations on a daily basis," he said. "I transform underused space into areas that clients look forward to retreating to at the end of a hectic day.”

Consider a double sided vanity and mirror (instead of the usual wall mounted options) to provide an unconventional solution for a two-person bath. In addition, tall commercial windows with soft shades can help to let in light while still providing privacy.
Design your bath for in-home “spa styled” pampering. In this bath, a two person-dual shower and therapeutic rain shower fixture adorn the atrium shower. Chandelier lighting used above an oversized jetted spa tub adds ambiance for a relaxing and romantic evening soak.
