    Style upgrade — Rather than using one large, heavy rug, Haggerty specified two modified runners from Cyrus Artisan Rugs to define the bed area and delineate the seating room.

    Grounded — The stately chinoiserie chest from Baker, Knapp & Tubbs creates a focal point and balances the room opposite the bed.

Most people sneak the hotel soaps into their suitcase before checking out, but one Edina couple took the whole room with them. Well, at least the concept, that is.

Maureen Haggerty of mint design was tasked with re-creating the look and feel of a beautiful luxury hotel room that the homeowners had visited in Vancouver. “They envisioned their master bedroom to be romantic, classic, and tailored with a fashionable flair,” she says.

To achieve a serene, quiet sophistication, Haggerty started with a subtle color palette. “We incorporated various tones of gray, from subtle to dramatic, as the color story of their whole house,” she says. “To say that they loved the color gray is an understatement!”

The bedroom walls and ceiling are adorned in a custom waxed Venetian plaster in a mellow platinum hue by Darril Otto of Otto Painting Design. “The special finish playfully reflects the light from the large windows, creating a beautiful glow.”

To welcome the couple into the room, Haggerty created a seating area much like at a hotel, with a settee, wing chair, and stool, which also break up the space. The mix of traditional, transitional, and whimsical furnishings creates what she calls a “composition of harmonious contrasts.” And much like a luxury hotel, this suite proves to be a true getaway and sanctuary from busy life. —Jennifer Blaise Kramer
