Comforting Retreat

A black bed with posts resembling oversize chess pieces commands attention in the master bedroom. Luxurious linens, a quilted coverlet, and down-filled pillows and comforter soften the large frame.

Overhead, exposed beams add texture, while a whisper-quiet, 52-inch ceiling fan circulates incoming breezes. The bed's black-and-white theme carries over to other areas of the room with checked fabric—a soft throw, a chair cushion, and ribbon tabs topping window sheers. Beyond red double doors, a private porch awaits.
