CS: Is the other bedroom the master bedroom? What choices went into this room?
NS: The "master bedroom" belongs to my best friend, Shane. He wanted more a of film noir and I wanted to create something that referenced, not replicated, the other rooms. This room is more about clean lines and simple accents — he's insanely organized so I think he'd pass out if I did a wall covered in photos.
CS: I love the mismatched dressers — they work very well together. How did you decide to arrange them the way you did?
NS: It’s not two dressers, actually. It’s just one dresser painted half black. When I found the dresser, I knew it was going to be a bit too traditional for Shane. So I decided to refinish half of it in high-gloss black and leave half in the original wood which I loved. Like I said, it was a $180. What’s the risk? I’m not ever sure if I’m finished with it yet. Who knows what I’ll do if I get bored?
