Our judges have chosen the finalists, now you choose the winners. Vote for the finalists in each of 17 Considered Design Awards categories, on both Remodelista and Gardenista. You can vote once a day in each category, now through August 8.

In the Best Bedroom Space/Professional category, our five finalists are Larson & Paul Architects, DeForest Architects, Imperfect Interiors, Hyde Evans Design, and Brian Paquette Interiors. 

Project 1

Larson & Paul Architects | Stanfordville, NY | Hudson Valley Cottage

Design Statement: “An eyebrow Colonial converted and updated with modern and Scandinavian touches.”

Chosen by: Guest judge Elana Frankel, style director at One Kings Lane, who says: “The simplicity of the whitewashed foundation punctuated with a Scandinavian fabric headboard breathes life into this attic bedroom (scale!!!). And I am always a sucker for exposed rafters.”


Project 2

DeForest Architects | Lakewood, WA | Lakewood Midcentury Modern

Design Statement: “New doors and windows and a simplified palette lend the master bedroom a calm, unfussy elegance.”

Chosen by: Remodelista editor in chief Julie Carlson: “I love how light and airy this bedroom is and the way it opens to the outdoors. The wood ceiling keeps the space from feeling too cold and adds a note of rusticity.”


Project 3

Hyde Evans Design | Rockaway Beach, WA | Oregon Coast

Design Statement: “This beachfront house was built in 1935. Metal platform twin beds for guests hold a casual assembly of linen and cotton stripes. Boards with hooks line the room and utilitarian metal wall sconces hang next to each bed. An antique painted-wood chest and stool from nearby antiques shops offer bedside tables.”

Chosen by: Julie Carlson. “This aerie corner retreat overlooking the sea manages to channel a nautical vibe without veering into twee territory; I like the mix of humble grain sack pillows, rag rug, and stool bedside table.”


Project 4

Imperfect Interiors | London, England | Imperfect Interiors Bedroom

Design Statement: “This formerly dark bedroom had been stripped of all of its original Victorian features, so I sourced an old fireplace, reinstated the cornicing, and redecorated it in modern but muted shades.”

Chosen by: Elana Frankel, who says, “The worn velvet headboard is glorious and is a great starting/focal point for the room. The palette is serene with hits of pink (unexpected) and modern accessories (night tables and lamp, also unexpected). That telephone table is so chic as a reading space.”


Project 5

Brian Paquette Interiors | Seattle, WA | Tree House

Design Statement: “My own home…filled with treasures from travel and the makers and designers I truly love.” 

Chosen by: Elana Frankel: “I love the way his own bedroom is a quiet sanctuary, simple and uncluttered, painted in a fresh white. It’s filled with personality–adore the plate on the wall and the reading lamp–but not so much that it becomes overwhelming. It feels warm and rich with objects personally chosen by the designer to evoke beauty.”
