Fabulous Room 04.08.16


I recently came across this stunning master suite in the May issue of Architectural Digest and was immediately smitten. Designed by Philip Vergeylen, the elegant, seven floor Georgian home is situated near London’s Hyde Park. The entire home is quite striking and chic, but I was most drawn to the beautiful master bedroom, dressed completely in white. The canopy bed is a work of art made with Solomon & Wu plaster cornicing crowns and yards and yards of cream linen. I have never seen a canopy bed with a cornice top. It is just exquisite!


The serene bedroom flows into the master bathroom which delivers a graphic punch thanks to the black and white marble floors. A sculptural free -standing tub and mirrored vanity complete the stylish space. The mirrored wall surrounding the window helps to expand the small space by reflecting the bed in the bedroom. I can’t say I blame them for adding the mirrored wall. It looks chic and if I had that fabulous bed, I’d want to look at it as much as possible!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Fun fact: A canopy or four-poster bed is called a lit à baldaquin in French.
    That bedroom is wonderfully tranquil. It seems to have layers of different whites, rather than being straight monochrome.
    The bathroom is great, too. I’m a sucker for a black-and-white floor. I wouldn’t want to have to clean those cabinet fronts though.
