Factors contributing to this Milton master bedroom: the wife loves purple, the husband didn’t want the bedroom to be too feminine, the designer likes modern, and the house had ’90s-era high ceilings. “This bedroom is a mash-up of a lot of things,” says interior designer Kristin Drohan.

Objects overhead

To fill the tall space, a large-scale chandelier mimics the verticality and brings in some sparkle.

Dramatic silhouettes

The designer’s own furniture line, Kristin Drohan Collection, includes this statement-making bed and cozy “balloon” chairs, both adding “a bit of a French flair.”

Layers of lavender

Drohan coated walls in Sherwin-Williams “Individual White,” which has a slight grayish-lavender tint. A custom pillow in floral Osborne & Little fabric checks off the homeowner’s purple love.

Raspberry repeats

A Robert Allen fabric in the room’s signature color shows up on the custom bench, chair, and pillows to maintain consistency.

Balance is key

To keep Leigh’s husband Chris content, dark wood on the nightstands and bed frame adds a masculine tone. “I think the pinstripe on the chair backs is a bit menswear, too,” Drohan says.


Animal-print rugs work in almost any room since they read as a neutral, notes the designer. This particular leopard-print version is masculine—as well as a little funky—pushing the room to a Milton-meets-Paris look.
