The Marriott House: The Master Bedroom & Neill's Office

This is the 2nd installment in a 3 part home tour of the Marriott House in Salt Lake City, Utah. You can see the other two posts here and the other is coming- the first introducing the home and showing the main living spaces and the 3rd featuring the upstairs bedrooms.

David & Neill Marriott’s master bedroom highlights Neill’s love of french country and European design. Her soft color palette and warm cozy furniture make this space a picture of serenity.

Neill recounts “I wanted a very quiet, calm, soft white French bedroom. After we painted this room it dawned on me that the dining room chest and shelves looked old, vintage and French - even though it is none of those things! So we moved them in here.”

The two paneled mirrored screen and painted sconces are old and French and from David’s mother’s home back East.

“I love textures, so the white matalasse bed cover with the quilt and the grain sack pillow (a consignment store bargain for $28!) helped with that.”

Neill goes on to say “I love the great deals in consignment stores and lots of blue and white china, books, and chairs have been hauled home from these stores.”

The rabbit throw adds wonderful softness and warmth, which was also David’s mother’s.

Moving into Neill’s home office we are met with a cheery pink buffalo check on the walls and furniture. “I just had to have some pink in the house!” is what she told me.

What looks like wallpaper is actually fabric that sticks to the walls with liquid starch and David amazingly figured out how to match the checks of the wet slippery fabric with the furniture!

This platform rocker has been owned and loved by four generations of women in the family.

Neill told me “In most of the rooms you perhaps notice there is a reference to Jesus Christ- either a picture or bust or a happening, like the print of Peter and John running to the tomb in my office or the Nauvoo Temple paperweight in the Ivy Room. A house becomes a home when there’s love inside, no matter how it’s furnished.  And with reminders of the Savior the home can become a holy place.”

Here are some other beautiful details in the surrounding rooms.
