The guesthouse bedroom features a large window. With the exception of the large sliding glass wall, all windows are standard sizes. “We kept to standard sizes of sheet goods and materials for the cabinetry and fireplace metal panels to help to dial in the cost without sacrificing the essence of the project,” reveals architect Hunter Gundersen.
Each space in the home—including the master bedroom—features strategically placed operable windows to take advantage of cross ventilation produced from diurnal mountain winds and induce natural convection cooling.

A window in the principal bedroom. “The relationship between interior and exterior is observant, contemplative, and subtle, due to the windows that frame the view,” says architect Benjamin Iborra Wicksteed. “We approached these window frames like hanging up paintings—although instead of art, it’s views of nature.”
The vaulted ceiling in the principal bedroom is based on the arc of a 21-foot-diameter circle that rises from its tangent with the ground-floor wall and culminates in the maximum regulatory height allowed, hence its asymmetry. It was the most costly part of the build, but “it was worth it because it gives the space a unique character, combining tradition with a contemporary approach,” says architect Benjamin Iborra Wicksteed.
Inside, there’s similarly understated material palette with concrete floors, plaster walls, and exposed hemlock rafters at the ceiling.

The curving white wall in architect Jay Atherton’s bedroom is optimally sited to capture shadows from the redbud tree outside his window. The bed rests on a concrete floor. "It was important that the rooms be pure spaces," says Cy Keener, a carpenter, who helped design and construct the spartan home in Phoenix.
One of the tricky things about low bed frames is that bed linens are designed to hang off the mattress, usually down past a box spring. So if you’re letting your mattress rest directly on the floor or are placing it on a platform bed, you'll want to let the sheets and covers flow evenly onto the platform so that it looks considered, yet casual.
If you’re considering forgoing the bed frame entirely, make sure it looks intentional rather than haphazard. Install light fixtures at a level that is appropriate for the low-lying bed, and keep big pillows away from overhead artwork or windows.

Perhaps the room that most reflects our personality is the bedroom.
