In the primary bedroom of our #CKkingspointproject, I floated the bed in the middle of the room to take advantage of the mountain views, and created a custom bed surround with all the necessary lighting and electronic controls that a mastermind could want.
The overall vibe is “luxury bunker” – with a linen wallcovering printed to look like concrete applied to the walls and ceiling, and a mural that goes on for miles. Vintage speakers and custom LED ceiling lighting complete the back-to-the-future look.
The custom bed surround is made in Macassar Ebony.
The Italian coverlet and shams are available through our retail shop here.
Sitting Area and Closet
We replaced the basic can lights with LED light strips for a futuristic vibe. Linen wallcovering, printed to resemble concrete, wraps the walls and ceiling.
The industrial-grade escape ladder doubles as the door handle to the concealed walk-in closet, the speaker is legit vintage, the LED lighting is custom, and the artwork reminds me of the opening sequences of many 007 movies.
The photographs on the wall depict monumental architectural works by renowned Brutalist architect Walter Netsch, whose credits include the Air Force Academy Chapel in Colorado Springs…and our clients’ main residence in Chicago. We sourced the photographs from venerable architecture firm SOM, where Netsch worked. SOM designed the renovation of our clients' Chicago residence.
In an homage to architect Waltner Netsch, who designed the iconic and incredible Air Force Academy chapel, we sourced a photograph of the chapel looking eerily Brutalist in its construction phase, then printed it on a clear film and applied it to a mirror.
