A project long in the making, this primary suite used hotel inspiration and tons of texture to create a relaxing retreat. The designer, Ethan of Ethan Charles Design, credits his amazing clients who gave him the freedom to take the idea of ‘casual coastal’ and run with it. Keep scrolling to see how this sweet space came together.

From the designer… This project was actually started towards the end of 2020, but with the major delays we are experiencing in the industry, it severely pushed out our completion date. Our clients are amazing, and we have been working with them for the past three years and are going on four! Something that we had discussed when we first met was that they wanted their home to have a more casual feeling. They’ve had formal rooms in the past that nobody would go into but really wanted somewhere that friends and family would just come and feel like they could take their shoes off and relax.

We have been working with each other for long enough that our clients just let us do our thing and really just implicitly trust us. We drew inspiration from one of my client’s favorite hotels, “The Montage”. We love the overall relaxed coastal vibe that the hotels have and thought it would be great to have that same vibe for their personal bedroom! The paneling on the ceiling is something they had in their kitchen and we carried it through the bedroom along with a few other spaces in the home to add an additional texture and level of interest. In everything we do we love to use as much texture as possible because it adds such warmth to a space and is really able to take the place of using major pops of color.
