Sleeping Quarters

Get a peak at Marilyn’s new bedroom and the design plan created by Lynda Reeves.

Lynda and Marilyn started of by creating an inspiration board for the bedroom then they deconstructed the room. Initially it was just a mash-up of different styles, but Marilyn’s personal style is much more global with an urban take.

Design editor at ‘House & Home,’ Joel Bray was tasked with sourcing the art, plants and a runner.

  • The piece by window speaks to Marilyn’s style
  • The piece over the console table adds a modern, graphic vibe
Carpet Runner


Since Marilyn is a very busy woman t was important to give her a low-maintenance plant that she wouldn’t have to worry about watering them. Silk plants are going to work best. The great thing about them is that you can place them wherever you as opposed to finding the right spot for them to get enough light.

This piece has sentimental value, so it was important to keep it in the room. All it needed was a good polish and it was good as new.

Instead of her small set a bigger one works with the scale of the space.

Consign what you don’t want
Everything Marilyn wanted to get rid of went to consignment store with the proceeds of sold items going towards new items for the room
