30 Years of Sweet Dreams – Bedroom Design

30 years of sweet dreams in bedroom design!  In our 30 years of Architecture and Interior Design work, we have created many beautiful bedrooms.  They have ranged from a classic country bedroom in a tiny guest bungalow and a luxurious master bedroom in an amazing Tuscan style home, to traditional guest suites for a large Texas Regional hunting retreat.  Here are just a few examples of the many sweet dreams we have helped to create over the years (and a few tips on creating your own beautiful bedrooms)…

Rustic Guestroom at an Adirondack Camp in New York

This rustic guest bedroom is part of a large, historic Adirondack camp in upstate New York. Our Architecture and Interior Design team collaborated with the client and other Architecture firms to preserve, restore and renovate this property over 20 years ago. The hand-carved bed was custom designed by Patrick Ford, and his then partner, Nancy Rogers. The use of many textures, patterns, and finishes can help to fill a large space. However, use of proper scale and proportion is necessary to help bring all these elements together into a warm and inviting space, well-equipped to chase away the winter chill.

Our featured image is a design for the serene master bedroom in a Tuscan style home in Old Preston Hollow. We provided Architectural Design for this beautiful 14,000 square foot villa style residence. This bedroom shows off the use of natural light, and the elegant architectural details, which can be found throughout this extraordinary home. Soft, cool colors on the walls, classical moldings, and neutral textured fabrics on fireside seating can create a calm retreat. The Interior Designer on this project was Stacy Brotemarkle and the builder was Tony Visconti, both with Bella Custom Homes.

After a long day of hunting, what better place to relax than one of over a dozen suites at this Texas Regional outpost in Central Texas? Each suite is nearly identical in layout to the others, so there are no worries about which one is too small, or too big. They are all just right. Subtle changes in fabrics and linens add character and uniqueness to each suite. Pat led the Architectural team and Diana Merzwski led the Interior Design team; designing this retreat over 15 years ago. In addition to the numerous bedrooms there is a great room, a commercial grade kitchen, a hunting equipment room, outdoor entertainment areas, bunks for the kids and views for days.

In this modern bedroom, scale and refined detail are everything. The Rogers-Ford team provided Architectural services for this Classical Modern home, and the Interior Designer was David Cadwallader Design, with Amy Thomasson providing Interior Decoration. The clean, minimal detail and the soft neutral palette create a tranquil space. You can see more images of this beautiful home here. The builder was Bordeaux Custom Homes.

This Master Bedroom is a part of one of the first homes Rogers-Ford designed. The gentle curve of the ceiling centers the room, with neutral fabrics and finishes contributing to the peaceful vibe. When the palette is neutral, consider introducing color with accessories and florals to add contrast and interest. This home was designed by Architect – Patrick Ford and his former partner, Interior Designer – Nancy Rogers. The builder was Sebastian Construction Group

Quaint bedroom in a classic country bungalow

This quaint bedroom is in a classic country bungalow, nestled on a beautiful estate in East Dallas. The owner uses this bungalow as a guest house, giving those who visit, their own private space. The Interior Designer for this project was Diana Merzwski, our Design Director at Rogers-Ford. She offers some tips for a welcoming guest bedroom, “A key element to a comfortable guest room is adaptability. Giving guests choices for the comfort items like pillows (hypoallergenic) and bedding layers lets guests adapt the room to their comfort level. Conveniences such as nightstands, reading lights and a jewelry tray can go a long way. One thing every guest room should have is a luggage rack! A folding luggage rack is an inexpensive, valuable investment, and works for spaces of all sizes, tucking into a closet or under a bed when not in use. Guests will love the small touches!”

This inviting guest room is a part of the same home shown above. The use of animal prints, sisal, dark wood and palms create an exotic getaway, right in the heart of University Park.
