Current Project: Transforming a Neutral Master Bedroom into a Grey and White Retreat


A successful entrepreneur and mother of two came to us looking to tranform her master bedroom.  After a long day at the office, both her and her husband wanted a place to unwind and relax.  Before the neutral cafe walls and dark brown window treatments represented a “blah” feeling to our clients.  After being inspired by an upscale hotel in New York City for business, our client envisionized a grey and white color scheme, so Ashley ran with the color scheme transforming the master bedroom into the room our client has always dreamed of.



Ashley selected crisp white furniture which included a new chest and vanity from Hickory Chair.  The existing white upholstered bed and nightstands still go well with the design.  We added a wonderful grey and white faux pony skin bench from Lazy Susan for her vanity and a fun zebra bench at the end of the bed from OLY Studio“I love adding a touch of black in the room and the zebra bench is perfect!” says Ashley.



Every bedroom needs a floor length mirror! The one below is upholstered in a cream color with silver accents from Hickory Chair.  This floor mirror is a wonderful addition to any room because it adds style and texture!  The round silver mirror from Global Views is a statement on its own.  It is so Hollywood and fits just right above the chest. 




The finishing touches include the white, grey, and silver, accessories and the oh so fun pillows. 


Most folks want to throw all the same pillows on the bed, but change it up and try three different pillows. In this room, it really makes your eye gravitate towards the cozy bed. 


Is your master bedroom not doing it for you, it feels tired and just “blah” consider calling us. You deserve a peaceful retreat after a long day at the office.

To Market…




It doesn’t take high scores on an IQ test full of relational equations to realize how much DLL loves going to Market. We arrived at the High Point Furniture Market again with wider eyes, eager to take in all the Season had to offer. Howard, Judy’s husband, joined us this year, adding a new dynamic, a stopwatch, & a whole lot of fun.

We visitied some tried and true vendors’ showrooms; namely Pearson, Baker, & CTH Sherrill-Ocassionals.
We also fell in love with the showrooms of our new vendors, as well. Century Furniture , Stanford Furniture, Emeson et cie, and Global Views just to name a few.

Our observations:

Birds (we knew this was coming)
Black and White

Faux Bois and Petrified Wood

Bold patterns

Great chairs

At the end of the day we realized that Design Lines has been setting a design pace in our own right. As we saw the crop of new things we were reminded of the words of great Architect and Designer Mies Van Der Rohe, in a variety of circumstances “Less (really) is more” and some things (and by that we mean not specifically a painted porcelain foo dog or a gold lamé footstool) should just be kept in the closet.

The End.
