a bedroom to escape to

Don't get me wrong I love my bedroom...but when I saw these photos of Jenn's third floor escape I had a momentary twinge of extreme jealously. Is this not the most relaxing, moody bedroom you have laid eyes on in awhile?

You might remember just over a year ago that I profiled Jenn Hannotte's home in a Hello! Neighbor post. At the time, her third floor bedroom wasn't finished so we didn't shoot up there. Then a few weeks ago, she sent me some photos of her completed room and asked if I wanted to come by and get some photographs of it. Obviously, I said yes! Kristin Sjaarda, popped by and took these incredible shots for you all to see.

Of course, what we all want to know is what colour are those walls. The wall colour is Benjamin Moore Dark Harbor and the floors and trim are Benjamin Moore Soot.

Jenn told me that she didn't really have a need for anything in the room except for a bed (since, lucky girl, has a large closet elsewhere) so she took the opportunity to play with objects and allowed the room to be an exercise in form over function. Her favorite thing is waking up in the morning and seeing all those books.

Jenn writes for the Covet Garden blog and is a weekly contributor to the Houzz website. In addition, she is the principal designer at Russet and Empire Interiors and is always looking for clients who are willing to work outside the boundaries.
