Japanese Textiles and Gustav Klimt Were the Inspiration

Overview for the master bath and dressing closet

Doniphan Moore’s sumptuously layered master bathroom and lavish dressing closet were created for intimate moments. De Gournay wallpapers inspired by Gustav Klimt and Japanese textile designs invoke a sense of romance, while metallics and jewel tones bring continuity to the space. The silver background imbues the refuge with a dreamlike atmosphere that flows into the marble flooring and evolves into a geometric, tumbling block motif. The master bath and dressing closet frame the process of getting dressed — or taking a moonlight bath — as necessary rituals, calming the mind and spirit. A chaise in “her” closet and a private coffee bar create opportunities to linger and enjoy the space’s many textures, Deco moments, and masculine and feminine influences. The daily routine is elevated with sophistication and nuanced small luxuries that bring comfort and a sense of sanctuary to the home. — Doniphan Moore


Doniphan Moore on his sources, inspirations, and favorite pieces:


I worked with a few new vendors, and building those relationships was really enjoyable, especially with The Container Store, which provided all the closets. Another was Louis Gloria Painting, which did the decorative painting and ceiling finishes. It was also exciting to design a custom makeup vanity and custom sofa. I also had the opportunity to work with de Gournay on a very collaborative, personal level, which was extremely exciting for me.


It was incredible working with Culp Associates, de Gournay, and the Stone Boutique. The Stone Boutique was extremely generous in their donation of 15 slabs. I love their selection of high-quality, unique product, and the owners were hands-on and directly involved with every part of the process.

Grange Hall, who is donating flowers to Kips Bay, is a wonderful boutique. .

Signature Millwork in Dallas did an incredible job with the cabinetry and coffee bar. It was constructed of walnut veneers and has a high-polish closed-pore finish and inlaid-glass details that give the space a sense of importance.

The Container Store did a beautiful job with their Laren custom closets for both his and her closets. His closet features a masculine ebony finish, while hers has a lighter Aspen finish.

A favorite piece in your room

One piece I love in particular is a fine Italian two-door cabinet from Maison Gerard. It’s lacquered wood with parchment doors and a stone top with Venetian glass feet and gold inclusions. This cabinet is not only remarkable for its elegance and simplicity but also for its subtle embellishments. The fluting detail is incredibly special in that it references, almost effortlessly, the molding detail by Casci Ornamental Plaster in the 10-foot overhead dome in the master bath.
