Smart idea: Quiet retreat

Located at the top level of the Explorers' triplex, the master retreat feels insulated from the home's social spaces. The headboard of the queen-size bed was custom-made using wood sustainably harvested from sugar palm trees. The bamboo sconce—from Schmitt Design—adds a warm, soft glow. The bedding is from Macy's.
