Fresh White Foundation

The light and airy bedroom is painted our favorite white paint, Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace. This paint reads as a true bright white in almost any light without being yellow or blue. We used it on both the walls and the custom built-in bunks. Each bunk starts with a white flax linen bedding layer. White sheets are the perfect base to build on and we love the way the linen creates a perfectly relaxed, lived-in vibe.

Layer Earth Tone Textiles

Shades of brown mix with crisp black and white to warm the space and blend with the wood-toned floor. A throw on each bed and pile of pillows adds plush softness. We chose a mix of browns and patterns that add depth and character to the white foundation.

Create Depth with Black Accents

Black accents throughout the space add necessary depth. We used black in the hardware, lighting, rug and bathroom vanity. In a bunk space designed to host a crowd, we always love to include a vanity with sinks so that when the bathroom is occupied, there is still space for doing hair, brushing teeth, etc. The black metal accents tie in to the bunks on the other side of the room. 

Layered earth tones keep a neutral space from feeling cold and boring. For a similar look in your own bed or living rooms, shop the roundup below! To see more of our Desert Oasis Project, check out the kitchen and dining room.
