The interior design of this bedroom has a classic, romantic, timeless look. The starting point for this project was this great bold damask pattern. The damask pattern is done in a metallic and really shines in the room. This simple pillow created the whole design scheme for this bedroom. Because of the shiny metallic color in the pillow, I decided that it would be a great idea to paint all the trims in the room a metallic gold, including the crown, base and window casings.
This bedroom before my interior design brought you back to the 1970’s with its white mica minimalist furniture. The homeowner told me she wanted a traditional look. I had designed other rooms for her so I knew and understood her taste. While she wanted a traditional look she also expressed a desire for an “updated” traditional look with an edge.
The first order of business was to address the space. The room was long and narrow and missed the mark as it had no architectural interest. I analyzed the bedroom’s need for storage and space. The closet as it existed in the bedroom did not suit the needs for the client.
Creating the built-in window banquet solved both problems. I had my cabinet maker build a custom unit according to my specifications, measurements, designs and color selections. In doing so we created more storage for the client as well as an amazing design focal point for the room. The tunnel-effect of the long, stark room became an altogether comfortable place to read a book or enjoy the scenic view out the window. We used an open mesh grid pattern for the balloon window treatments which allowed light to flow into the bedroom and trimmed it with a decorative fringe.
From there, the design of the bedroom evolved. We continued with the fabrics and fringe on the night table and added an elegant crystal chandelier beside the bed. I found a unique walnut and rattan headboard for the bed in one of my designer showrooms. When the project was complete we had created a bedroom that was beautiful, comfortable and functional.
It has been a pleasure working with this family. She has referred me to several of her friends and family members. It has been a wonderful experience working together. Thank you, again, Karen. I am glad you are happy with the bedroom design.
