Layered For Luxury: Betsy Bassett Interiors Transforms a Master Suite

High-end master bath custom designed by Betsy Bassett Interiors

Betsy Bassett Interiors has a hand in every aspect of a home’s interior space—from the interior architectural details and furnishings to the finishing touches. While renovating an outdated bedroom, Principal Betsy Bassett designed custom cabinetry, specified trim details and worked directly with artists to develop custom wall coverings and one-of-a-kind furniture to ensure a perfectly personalized master suite.

Bassett creates layers of luxury in each space she designs. Here, Bassett transforms a Pepto Bismol-pink bathroom into an elegant, spa-like retreat. While the gorgeous freestanding soaking tub is the room’s focal point, it is the details that allow this master bath to shine. The wallpaper was custom colored for this project and made from mother-of-pearl, which gives the room a stunning shimmer in the morning light.

All the furnishings were tailored for the client. Bassett customized a beautiful two-toned desk expressly for the space. An ivory velvet desk chair serves as the ideal companion; the designer embellished its upholstery with a Greek key pattern nailhead detail for added dimension.

The closet was designed with the client’s impressive shoe collection and wardrobe in mind. The custom cabinetry is lined with interior lights and painted a metallic taupe glaze, and the sheen of the leopard print wallpaper with vertical stripes adds glamour. To create the client’s dream closet, Bassett had to find the perfect balance of sparkle and sophistication. She explains, “my design strategy is to layer beautiful fabrics and high-end materials but also to know when to stop. I want to create luxury and calm; a bedroom suite should be a place of peace.”
