Dark & Moody Sitting Area

Consider stately decor for a principal bedroom.

Second prize winner of our 2007 design contest — Dean Handspiker of Toronto — brought luxe sophistication to his previously dated condo with a rich palette of blue-greys and traditional wood furniture pieces. A love seat that he had reupholstered in dark grey corduroy and punctuated with nailhead trim anchors the sitting area in his principal bedroom and often hosts his whippet, Red.
