An Earthy Retreat
Our next featured trio of rooms celebrates warm tones and earthy details, all within a modern context. Wooded views await outside this next lofty bedroom that may as well be a resort cabin!

With a view of the rooftops, the warm-toned bedroom below is anchored by wooden flooring.

It’s hard to imagine anything more pure than white loungers, gauzy curtains and an expansive view of the crystal blue ocean. By going with a “less is more” approach punctuated by shades of sea blue, pure tropical style can reign at home, as shown by the Jennifer Post-designed bedroom below.

We end with a space that’s as colorful as it is tropical. It’s the master bedroom of designer John Barman. This Miami Beach sleeping space features an array of unexpected details in vivid tones. Radiant modern style is the perfect modern counterpart to white walls and the placid ocean just outside. [photo by Dan Forer via Architectural Digest]
