Current dreamroom-Allan Shope bedroom


This is a bedroom designed by American architect Allan Shope. I found out about him via Architectural Digest. This is actually a photo from the September 2010 issue.
The house is situated in Amenia, in the Hudson Valey, NY.

Shope is best known for his architecture based on the principles of sustainable living. He actually lives with these principles in his large farm.

What draws me to this room is its clarity. Its warmth. The quiet luxury of natural materials


In situ harvested black cherry clads the walls and ceiling of his master bedroom and is the source of its built-in furniture. As throughout the house, Shope avoided applying stains or paints. An old Kazak rug covers the bed. Audubon prints hang prominently, endearing the natural world to the room's occupants.
