Dissecting the Details: Mark Sikes

We’ve come to know and love Mark D. Sikes for everything he does so masterfully, and creating luxurious bedroom retreats is one of those things. Nancy of Marcus Design here with you today, showing you some of the gorgeous details that make Mark’s bedroom projects into spaces we would never want to leave. Let’s dissect 3 key features Mark implements in these rooms:

BLUE & WHITE + PATTERN
 
 

Though Mark’s work extends into many hues, we’ve come to recognize him for what he creates with classic blue & white. This is a palette that has stood the test of time, and he masterfully mixes varying shades, textures, and maybe most importantly – patterns. On his favorite wall color option Mark explains, “Farrow & Ball Skylight is probably my ultimate color for any room, and that’s a pale blue.” The overall effect is likely the most soothing color combination one could choose for a restful retreat.

ANTIQUE PIECES
 

We’ve often said that each room needs at least one antique piece to bring soul and history to the space. Mark selects the most stand out furnishings that will surely be treasured for generations. The warmth of the wood in the specific examples above also adds texture and a sense of things collected over time.

 
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, there is nothing more luxurious in the bedroom than an over the top canopy bed. Whether a detailed floral pattern, or a sleek tape-trimmed solid fabric, the look is chic and everlasting! The height is so dramatic and the overall look is timeless.

  1. I can’t get enough of Mark D. Sikes lately! I love the details you pointed out – his pattern mixing and use of varying shades of blue is so good. His spaces feel modern and exciting but classic as well. I’m dying to go see the Coastal Living house he designed!

  2. These canopy beds are gorgeous. I am looking through your blog to find decorative plumbing fixtures for inspiration, as I’m a Houston plumber. Do you have any posts or tags like that?

    Thank you so much Paloma!

    Warmly,
