Room of the Week: This couple had already started updating their bathroom, but needed help completing their project. A neutral tile was chosen for the shower along with an accent tile that gives the room visual interest. A metallic, decorative wall treatment and new mirror add additional texture. For added color, a combination of turquoise and orange was used in the cornice, artwork, accessories and towels. What a beautiful space!
The homeowner while keeping her traditional furniture wanted to update the look of their the bedroom with modern clean lines. The round sitting area had always been a problem for her and she wanted to transform it into an area where she and her husband could relax and enjoy the view seen outside of a series of large windows.
A selection of cheery yellow and gray prints was the starting point...a graphic design for the bed shams, a gray and white link pattern for the bench at the foot of the bed, and a sunny yellow and slate floral pattern for the window valance. These new patterns and colors brought life to the former soulless atmosphere. We found the more appropriate lightweight, and comfortable to the touch, duvet cover that the client had requested.
Decorating Den Interior's insurance executive client would be using this apartment 3-5 days a week when he was away from home doing business in another city. Opting for a two bedroom apartment left the master bedroom without furniture and a chance to decorate it from scratch.
Together client and designer chose bold blue colors tempered with sand and white. The queen bed with the high, dark, sleek wood headboard is both masculine and pleasing. Accent pillows added to the custom bedding had the correct scale and print to break up the dark tones. The deep blue accent wall adds drama and serves as an ideal backdrop for the large sepia toned citiscape artwork. In answer to the client's request for a treatment that would completely block the window light and view, the decorators found a great graphic print which was made into draperies and hung from a traverse rod. The selection of furnishings and the fashionable shade of blue gives the space a decidedly upscale hotel room feel that the client desired.
Dianna and Todd, a recently married couple, confronted the not unusual challenge faced by newlyweds when the bride moves into her husband's bachelor pad. Among the requests they had for their decorator were an optional seating arrangement, improved window treatments, and a more interesting focal point fireplace wall.
The project began with a faux finish to the wall behind the bookshelves and above the fireplace mantel. The decorator based the color of the finish and the walls on the existing rug that Dianna loved and wanted to keep. Custom-made chairs and sofa were placed to give a more open feeling to the room and provide seating options for entertaining. Using a snake-skin like fabric with metallic shimmers, the decorator made the pillows on the chairs stand out against the soft, velvety fabric and also to coordinate with the polished nickel nailheads and metallic finish on the bookshelf walls. A round, silver trimmed, glazed cordovan glass-topped cocktail table enabled easy movement within the room. Artwork, sculptures, books, candlesticks, and an antiqued silver leaf framed mirror rounded out the rearranged shelves and mantel. A single Silhouette window shade and faux silk inverted drapery panels were hung from rings on a beautiful platinum rod. The decorator's expertise helped Dianna and Todd achieve a more appropriate look for the family room that now both husband and wife can appreciate.
Color Trend:: From vibrant fire engine to deep cherry, shades of red infuse home decor with eye-catching energy. Pair the hue with orange for a look that exudes unadulterated warmth and zest. Or, as seen in this living room, strategically place a black and white animal skin somewhere in the room to add drama and make a statement.
Room of the Week: These clients simply wanted their outdated, child-like bedroom to look pretty and put together. First, a custom upholstered ultra-suede headboard was made along with a great black and white bedding ensemble. A custom black roman shade with white banding replaced the outdated venetian blinds. A chandelier and two lamps created a wonderful ambiance. And finally, pops of yellow complete the beautiful space. What an improvement!
