Balance & Harmony

2016 SF Decorator Showcase House “The Master Suite” by Tineke Triggs, Artistic Designs For Living

The design for this year’s Master Suite was inspired by the love story between David Bowie and his beautiful wife Iman.  The aesthetic is clean and contemporary with geometric elements used throughout the space to create a sense of balance between their personalities. A sophisticated palette of black, gold and cream reflect Iman’s timeless glamour while modern furnishings and angular forms speak to David’s more edgy persona. The overall mood is light and airy, inspired by the calming transformation Iman brought to David’s life. The suite is envisioned as a sacred hideaway for these two special souls to unwind and reconnect at the end of each day.
