When Brooklyn-based designers Peter Dolkas and Michelle Ficker of Studio Dorian were called upon to renovate a Brooklyn family’s new property in Litchfield County, Connecticut, the project started as a weekend house. Throughout the renovation, though, the couple decided to fully relocate from Brooklyn. They still intended to welcome many guests into their home, so building out one of the bedrooms as a welcoming four-person bunk bedroom was key.
The designers splatter-painted the floors in a typical New England style, modernizing the look in shades of bright blue, then built custom bunks painted in a deep, calming shade and outfitted with vintage and new textiles in a rainbow of color. Here we profile the main design elements with similar sources to match.
