WHAT, OH WHAT, HAD THE CLIENT BEEN DREAMING OF?
There is nothing more fabulous than someone who know what kind of bedroom they want…a gorgeous one! This client loves black high contrasts in color. Like a classic car, the colors were to be black and silver. We needed slick design with storage bigger than a glove box and a clean, simple elegance…not too much “stuff” if you know what I mean.
So everything had to change.
PART OF THE PLANNING:
Upon finding the most amazing stripe fabric in black with champagne/silver stripes, I designed this dramatic headboard for the client. My pencil sketch is below.
***Why simply stripe a piece of furniture when you can add to the complexity, make your upholsterer a little crazy and take the room to the next level?
My illustration to communicate to the upholsterer how I wanted the stripe to appear on the custom headboard.***
THE PLAN COMES TOGETHER:
Installation days are always crazy fun. This particular day, there were 5 of us respecting the space. There is nothing more satisfying than working along with such professionals with all of us driven toward the exact same goal…to make the room perfect!
"During" Drapes and rods going up.
"During" Time to begin assembling and making the bed with custom designed bedding.
"During" The headboard begins to make it's way onto the wall.
"During" The guys just brought this piece in. It is magnificent! I should have taken a shot of the inside...you would melt with the velvet lined drawers. I have marked where the TV and sconces are to be hung.
"During" The chandelier goes up in front of the new silver drapes.
DRUM ROLL…..THE DREAM IS HERE:
Finally! After a long day, you can see the fruits of all the labor. Months of planning come down to this moment as we now get to enjoy it and stand behind the camera. It is a beautiful thing.
What did this Client have to say? Well, she LOVED it! She went on and on. Her friends went on and on. Her family went on and on. I could go on and on with how pleased she and her husband were with the results and that is what matters to me. I never really “leave” a job. I am there if anything ever comes up and to make sure they are 110% thrilled. I hate to leave, but it is time to continue with the next design spinning in my head….
****What do YOU think of this space? I would love to hear! What is your dream bedroom? Everyone’s is very different and that is what makes each one so great.
"After" A glorious fabric contrast...unexpected.
"After" The silk drapes are so luxurious with a strong hand.
"After" The hand-carved detail at the top is really something and so very special. I love the space between the upholstered fabric and the carved wood. Did they get the stripe right off of my sketch?
"After" Yes! The fabric on the very custom headboard looks just like my sketch. Striking is the word! Custom silver leaf side tables with plenty of storage.
"After" The diamond studded fabric on the shams add sparkle and catch the sun. Luxury.
"After" A dramatic finish. The piece looks so spectacular. This photo simply doesn't do it justice...or any part of this room justice!
"After" Such a fantastic finish on this piece. That is a huge way to tell the difference in quality on a piece...the finish.
"After" How wonderful to take a bath with this chandelier on the dimmer. Sparkle and shimmer to relax the day away.
"After" The drapes are the perfect length to add drama, beauty and keep clear of stray bubbles. They are lined to not let light in for a peaceful night's sleep.
"After" Bubbles over bubbles...
"After" and a great finish.
Make it fab!
