Patchwork

Design by  Bobeche Interiors

I don’t know if it’s because I have my first sewing class this weekend and my world has all of sudden been opened up to brilliant quilters, BUT I am digging the patchwork style and it’s comeback to interior design. This look doesn’t stop at just textiles, they look stunning in flooring like tile and wood and in wall applications such as wallpaper and backsplashes. Talented sewers are incorporating patchwork into their modern spaces giving it a surprisingly updated look that I swear you will love. Need proof? Check out these gorgeous designs below. Time to dig out your Grandma’s timeless blanket or your sewing machine and get to work!

Caning is just another texture to add to the list of things that are trending. It is a material that has been around since Ancient Egypt, began it’s popularity with the masses in the 1800’s and hasn’t looked back. Caning is made from weaving rattan vine or peel to make everything from tables to lighting. It is surprising a sturdy material, but I still remember as a child trying to rip through the beautiful little hole pattern they make:) Furniture manufacturers are always coming up with modern colors and designs to keep this look fresh. These are some of my favorite pieces at the moment.

The classic four poster bed will never go out of style in my book, but there has been a recent resurgence of these decorative beds. They come in a mix of styles, which make them a perfect fit for any environment whether it be a lake house or a city penthouse. They are also versatile in numerous materials, some of my favorites being the textural fabric and seagrass. Four poster beds come in varying heights. The higher the ceiling you have, the taller the posts should be. These are timeless furniture pieces that will make you feel like you’re sleeping in a palace. Sweet Dreams!

Looking up

The 5th wall as I call it is getting more attention these days. Making a statement on your ceiling will add color, pattern, texture, and a lot of personality! Often neglected, the ceiling can be easily embellished with a few of my favorite decorative applications:

  1. Wallpaper: I’m a huge fan of wallpaper, so there is nothing that will create more drama to a space than a wallpaper on the ceiling. You can’t go wrong with textures like seagrass, geometric or floral patterns, or a fun metallic accent would look lovely.

2. Paint: How amazing does this painted recessed ceiling look? It’s such an easy way to add another layer of color to a room. This room does an excellent job of tying in the gorgeous teal accents from the bed and curtains.

3. Bead boarding and Beams: My two favorite B’s combined together to form a ceiling full of character. Colonial home? Cottage? This look definitely keeps the room interesting. You can also contrast the two with different colors, which will draw your eyes up more. Another look is to keep natural wood beams and paint the bead boarding for a more rustic style.

4. Coffered Ceiling: This application gives a very elegant and custom design to any room. I think it looks fantastic when the ceiling is painted a color that really pops against the beautiful white trim.

Whatever you may be thinking for the ceiling, let’s not forget that it’s not only made for lighting! Have fun with what you put up there. It may be a creative way to give your room that finishing touch.
