NDID Interiors // Master Suites & Bedrooms
This week we wanted to share a series of our favourite master suites and bedrooms. Often the jewel in the crown, master suites are the ultimate havens. Our clients may have longed to own a winter retreat for years, and their bedroom can often be the most important space to consider.
Whether the property is a renovation or a new build using reclaimed timbers, the building may have been positioned to maximise the morning light, or take in a specific view of the surrounding mountains.
Way back in the beginning of NDID, when Nicky was designing and overseeing the build of her family’s winter home in Les Gets, Nicky specifically fell in love with the valley in front of their own farm house. The area surrounding Ferme de Moudon is protected, meaning that no one can build in front of their property. The design of their master bedroom on the top floor using wall to wall windows allowed you to take in the most breathtaking view from the entire property lying in your own bed, what could be more special?!

This next interior was for a family who were relocating to Chamonix. They decided to leave city life behind and start a new life in the mountains. The property features a wonderful family style open kitchen and dining room, a beautiful library study room for all their books and literature, and the master suite was designed to be a cosy den hideaway at the top of the house.
To the right you have a large ensuite bathroom and dressing area, the campaign chest dressing table, added a touch of glamour to the bedroom. The sheepskin rug and beanbag were firm favourites with the children.
Below is a special 6 bedroom duplex penthouse we designed in Klosters. With a palette of whites and greys, and details in wood, stone and chrome.
The master suite is at the top of the four storey building and was designed to indulge guilty pleasures. The bed is covered in super crisp White Company linens, there is an egg-shaped bath, the cupboards are filled with bottles of the owners white lavender body products, and the white leather covered dressing table features two hand blown glass lamps and a vanity mirror. Out of site is a state of the art sound system and air humidifiers to keep the space as perfect as it possibly can be.
On to Meribel, with the glamorous Talay Sofa by Amy Somerville, the deep teal velvet was chosen to compliment our clients art work which was chosen for the space. Nicky’s own collection fur throw adds an extra layer of luxe to the master king size bed.
This residential project below in the English countryside was from quite a few years ago, but what a bed! This Tudor four poster was certainly something to design around. A deep chocolate ND Collection brown fur throw was the perfect addition.
This elegant apartment in London is an example above of how good design can be timeless, a design mantra we always aim to keep in mind with every project. An ebb and flow style wool and silk carpet, boucle wool upholstery for the day bed and leather and dark wood bench at the end of the bed keep this place elegant and simple.
As we look ahead to the completion dates for our design projects this year, we’ll soon have new chalets and homes which are being photographed to share. Our hotel project in Spain is coming along despite unforeseen planning hurdles, and a beautiful family villa in Munich has just been photographed.
