The design of this bedroom developed when I presented this client an elegant bed ensemble constructed in shiny velvet textures, metallic woven patterns, and faux fur embellishments that create the luxury my client envisioned. The ensemble’s comforter is crafted from a beautiful cream and gold metallic fabric, the two Euro shams with a golden, metallic geometric pattern and another Euro pillow is constructed in a faux fur fabric. The three standard pillow shams are hand-painted in a mauve and lavender stria pattern and the two bolsters are embellished with ribbon and gold studs. The centerpiece of the room is its tall, tufted upholstered headboard that is upholstered in a luxurious cream-colored velvet fabric.
The ensemble’s hand-painted pillow sham’s set the stage for the room’s palette of cream, mauve, lavender and dusty plum. The wall where the bed’s headboard would be placed was wallpapered in a dusty plum crinkled paper to best feature the headboard. The remaining walls as well as the tray ceiling were painted a calm lavender hue.
After living with her messy draperies for many years this client refused to have any fabric at the window. Instead, we selected white plantation shutters.
While the upholstered headboard and bedding are certainly the stars of the room the other small touches – the velvet bed throw, the faux llama area rug, acrylic lamp, and the leopard Louie chair enhance the character and restfulness of the space.
