Happy Thursday! One of my recent projects was for a client in her early 20’s who wanted her room to have a smooth transition into “adult hood.” She wanted to make sure that her bedroom was comfortable for sleeping, having a few friends over to hang out, studying, and still have enough space to keep clutter away. The color palette selected for this bedroom was a mixture of black, champagne, cool toned and warm toned grays for her room decor. I added a black porcelain knob with brass keyhole passage door set, and brass accents suchs as electrical switch plates, drapery hardware, and accessories to give the room a unique look accentuating the black canopy bed and cool gray paint color. The young lady wanted to incorporate very subtle of skulls accessories through which I created by using the black skull candle, the brass skull, and silver skull. I also had a print of a skull printed on a dictionary page framed above the garment rack. Using a blend of black, champagne, and grays created a clean and elegant design concept for a young lady’s room. Everything in this bedroom was chosen by the client and myself to give the room and subtle fashionable feel. The closet’s sliding doors were removed and a closet system was installed to create a modern look. I had the drapery and hardware custom made and installed high as usual, creating an illusion of higher ceilings and also making the room feel larger.
The dimmable sconces that were installed above the bed were custom made, fit for a soothing mood that is perfect for reading under the blankets. This is another project that my assistant and I completely propped up with decorative pillows, throws, flowers, and small accessories all around. Actually to be completely honest with you, I used some of my personal items such as my shoes, clothes, plants and candles to reflect the full design through photos. I didn’t have a lot of furniture to move around but I did have a lot of prep accessories to bring into the home. We also propped the bathroom area to make the roman shade the focal point. The art above the toilet gave the wall paint color a pop. The young lady loved the new setup (as usual!) and she kept a few accessories, including the beautiful full body mirror.
