What I’m Working On: Day 2
For today’s post, I wanted to show you what’s-a-happening in a client’s master bedroom. Let’s start from the beginning. My inspiration for the room was this ridiculously good-looking Italian home belonging to Annette Joseph featured on Design*Sponge. I love the layers of taupe with pops of orange.
This photo was the driving force behind the wall and trim color (from Benjamin Moore) as well as the large scale tone-on-tone mosaic design (by Karen Dellinger). Look closely, it’s there.
For the bedding, I couldn’t find anything ready-made that would work so I introduced the idea of having custom pieces made by my local workroom. The King duvet cover will be made out of a lightweight indoor/outdoor fabric from Maria Flora. My client’s dogs sleep on the bed so we needed something durable and easy to clean. The zig zag fabric from Fadini Borghi (which is extra yummy) is for an over-sized neck roll. Just for fun.
This gorgeous orange No. 9 from Jim Thompson fabric and will be used for 2 King shams with thick flanges.
I’m using this Victoria Hagan fabric for the coverlet that will be folded up at the foot of the bed. Think of a fatter version of the dinky little runners that are now on hotel beds.
Here is a sketch showing the layout of the bedding:
I ripped this photo out of a magazine, Window and Wall Ideas, back in 2005 (It’s on my design bucket list and I finally get to use it!) and it’s the design we are using for the window treatments. The original window treatment design is from Fiona Weeks. The trim is from Robert Allen and the fabric for the panels is a faux silk strie from Stout, shown in the photo to the right.
Now the only thing we are missing is a large floor length mirror. We’ve been toying with a lot of different ideas but we can’t seem to settle on a winner. I will let you know when we have a solution!
