Inspired by the Blue Zone of Okinawa, Japan — where people live long, contented lives — the designer specified and designed all the interior furnishings, colors (ivory, beige and navy), product materials and lighting of this restful, west-facing salon.
• Custom faux finishes designed by the interior designer and decorative artisan accent the walls and ceiling; the ceiling mirrors the lake with undertones of pearl and blue.
• Conrad designer window shades provide privacy in the sleeping areas.
• Millwork for windows and doors was reproduced to match the original design of the house and to preserve the original age and character of the home.
The whisper of the wind and romance of a nearby lake combine with Asian serenity in this peaceful master retreat.
The original 1920s lake-facing home with no view and three small bedrooms had lots of potential. The new architect-designed floor plan transformed the two front bedrooms into an elegant owner’s salon with spacious bedroom, luxurious bath with shower and spectacular balcony with a tree house view of the lake.
• The master bath reflects Japanese solitude with understated colors of indigo, black and tan accented with Kalista polished nickel fixtures.
• Tile flooring is patterned after a shoji screen with natural countertops and shower walls. The walk-in shower has a deep indigo floor accented with ribbons of blue glass reminiscent of a precipice with reflections of water below.
• Large closet features rift-cut red oak custom cabinets with a silky faux finish.
