Hi There . . .
Installed Nichole Smith's Master Bedroom the other day as well. Nichole is one who is not afraid of color, she has a whimsical spirit and while bright and fun is generally the direction she heads, I helped her create that feel without the overall space being too young. I wanted to give her the bright, fun look yet with some sophisticated pieces of quality that would take this master bedroom to a place of luxury with a whimsical side, like her !
I started with this paper. It was perfect for the look I imaged her going for. Bright and fun, but not too young. I love the feel of a hand drawn look, but I really love the slightly odd color combination. Coral is a color I have been really drawn to lately. This paper also has a touch of purple - so the purple sofa she already had in the room would tie together perfectly !
The other paper we used in the room pulled the color coral out and gave it more of a presence. We covered the back of her two built in and black secretary and staggered the shelves, but notice this graphic pattern? I asked Keith to paint it over the grass cloth for me. While there are some amazing painted, graphic grass cloths I have used in the past, this particular job only needed a bit of it. Keith wanted to use his new air gun . . . that was the real reason !
This one detail really made the room for me . . LOVE it.
I started with a board for her as well. I suggested the paper as an accent wall behind the four-poster black bed she already had. I chose two cream bedside tables, elegant with gold accents, large, with great storage, sophisticated. Two fun, Stray Dog lamps and mis-matched, yet cohesive pillows - all keeping in mind the purple sofa she already had in the space. This paper really did the trick on pulling the colors together, and adding a slight, colorful, bright feeling.
