Known as the better half of the real estate flipping duo in the Bravo series, Flipping Out, and owner of Brown Design + Development, Ryan Brown is high on my list of mentors (though he doesn’t know it yet). His design aesthetic is the perfect marriage of Californian, Modern, Rustic, and Eco-Chic. He uses texture and pattern to capture interest in his earthy color palettes and accentuates his design with beautiful travel finds. His rooms always appear to have the mark of a well-traveled individual.

I’ve chosen to focus on the use of trees/greenery in Brown’s bedroom designs. Interestingly, I’ve read that house plants act as natural air purifiers, they make you feel calmer and more optimistic, and they reduce fatigue and cold-related illnesses by 30 percent. Recently, I’ve been considering greenery for my bedroom and was inspired by what I saw on the Brown Design + Development website.

This image is actually one of my favorites. The artwork over the bed creates a beautiful focal point and offers an array of options if one decided to add more color at a later date. The oversized chair near the window is great for reading and simply enjoying the view. The duo toned curtains are clean and classic!


I love all of the textures and tones in this room; from the silk drapery to the bamboo roman shades and linen side chairs. I would guess the throw at the foot of the bed is cashmere.

Talk about bring the outdoors in! In a room this beautiful would be convinced I was breathing fresh air and not city smog.

Am I in heaven? Waking up in this room would make everyday a great day. I’m loving the window sheers hung high and wide.

This image has me hankering for a trip to the west coast. This bedroom gives literal meaning to the phrase “California Dreamin’.”

Check out the enormous Shoji screen and once again the view of the outdoors. This is probably the closest I would get to camping. I could watch the sunset, gaze at the stars, and behold a glorious sunrise in the comforts of my pajamas.

What aspects of his design would you integrate into your home decor?
