A celebration of nature
The master bedroom suite, located on the opposite side of the house from the guest wing, affords both homeowners and guests a measure of privacy. Here, the wall of windows provides a romantic backdrop for the couple’s pencil-post bed (a checkmark on their “dream home” list). In the master ensuite, a horizontal transom window above the shower and near the ceiling invites even more morning light and mirrors the smaller transom above the mullioned door opening to a private outdoor shower and seating area with water views.
Like the rest of the home, the master suite expresses a Scandinavian-meets-Moroccan aesthetic. The spare furnishings speak to a Scandinavian appreciation of “less is more,” while the objects and finishings share a Moroccan flair for textured patterns: tufted leather poufs, hand-embroidered throw pillows, faux animal hides, and traditional hexagonal hand-painted tiles.
“My husband and I like a home that’s under-decorated—our favorite books, art, dog bowls, and room enough to embrace the view,” says the wife. A small collection of treasured lithographs, paintings, and photographs are decoration enough for inspiration in this spectacular setting.
Equally important to the homeowners are pendant lights that are as much about the light cast as the forms themselves. Each is unique in shape and material—blown glass, hammered copper, woven reeds, hand-cut metal—but similar in that the lights all wash fanciful shadows over the ceiling and walls. In the foyer, a light fixture referencing a post-modern birdcage hangs from the wallpapered ceiling of birds and butterflies. “We love what we love,” the wife adds with a smile.
