Bedroom Tour: Asian-Theme Master Bedroom Suite

An Asian-flavor remodel revamps the master suite of this 90-year-old home and packs generous bedroom storage into every nook and cranny.

Master Suite Makeover

When the owners of this 1916 Prairie-style bungalow decided to transform two small bedrooms and a bath into a sublime, Asian-theme master suite, they soon realized they also needed to incorporate specialty storage solutions to organize the sprawling space and suit their individual needs. The architectural overhaul fashioned a sitting room, dressing room, walk-in closets, and shower room out of various spaces, but curbing the clutter required careful planning, impeccable attention to detail, and innovative yet simple designs.

The most striking element of the project is a large mahogany headboard that doubles as an entertainment center and successfully divides the long, narrow room into two distinct areas. The sleeping side of the partition features adjustable lighting and a soothing grid design. The reverse side serves as a media center, anchoring the sitting room and creating an upstairs family room. Gooseneck sconces on the headboard help keep the twin bedside tables clutter-free.

Japanese Cabinet

An antique Japanese tansu cabinet was separated into two storage pieces: The top portion is a dresser in the bedroom; the bottom portion is a linen chest in the bathroom.

Built-In Window Seats

Long, built-in window seats around the room's perimeter vary in their proportions and provide ample shoe storage.
