Residents Ethan and David gave architect Anne Barrett of 30E design one directive when renovating their attic space into a master suite: to make it feel like a refuge, their own private boutique hotel. Although an adult retreat was impossible after their children, Marly and Yandel, adopted it, the resulting colorful design is a true getaway. Photos courtesy 30E design.
The 450-square-foot-space is part of the residents gradual renovation to turn their classic New England shingle house into a modern interior with some period details. The attic was originally a cramped and cluttered bedroom, so Barrett made unifying material moves and added custom storage. The floor running throughout the room is bamboo strand flooring from Plyboo and a mix of cream and funky orange (Benjamin Moore Calypso) adds a crisp dose of color.
In the bathroom, Roca wall tile in Rainbow Azul continues the citrus color scheme, and the floor is clad in ceramic plank. The Ikea sinks and faucets also helped the design come in on budget.
