In your bedrooms, our goal is always to create a comfortable relaxing space…this is where we spend a third of our life. Soft colors and beautiful bedding always come to mind.
To cozy up the master bedroom we painted the walls Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore. The rooms calming color scheme takes its cue from the vanilla color on the bedding and the two Hickory chairs in the room that are covered in a Kravet Couture fabric “Cushy Life” that feels fabulous.
In this bedroom we also mixed a traditional architectural backdrop, antiques and modern pieces that join formal and informal accents to showcase the art of mixing opposites. To add further interest to the room, old candlesticks were made into lamps and straight line chest from Hickory Chair blended the two styles together. Simple drapes on one inch rods provided a more transitional pace.
The master bedroom needs to be our escape from stress and our busy life.
A guest bedroom needs to welcome your guest, but remember they are only there for a short period of time. In this room “ Bashful” from Benjamin Moore was chosen as the paint color on walls to accent the embroidered linen floral fabric from Casamance that dresses the window drapes.
Many times storage area is not as important for bedside chests since it is a guest room. There are many options you can use beside the bed.
Some options are: Floating consoles, an end table with one drawer, a decorative iron table.
SECOND GUEST BEDROOM:
This bedroom was painted a soft vanilla with the ceiling painted white to create a clean architectural space to enhance the bleached wood on the bed headboard. Antique lace was added to the end of the plain pillow cases to give texture and a touch of luxe to the bedding. The “Chantilly Lace” by Benjamin Moore used on the walls created a soft look. Soft colors do help us relax.
If a casual approach is your life style then there are fun fabrics and washable coverlets and pillows that can end our worries if pets or children decide to jump up on our beds and turn them into a gathering place for the family. Fabric shown above is from Trend and the coverlet is from Lili Alessandra.
Until next time…
