Project Spotlight: Wyola Home

This is a small master bedroom design for a lovely couple in Wyola. Located in a colonial townhome, this is the absolute perfect size for a bedroom. It’s so nice and cozy and leaves the right amount of space for the king bed and a small accent chair. There is a small window that is 6’ from the floor, which the bed fits perfectly under. The other 2 windows are situated at 3’ from the floor leaving lots of natural light to shine through. The door leads to the hallway and the open entry leads to the master walk in closet and bathroom. I wanted to leave this space open for a nice flow.

The couple wanted the room to have a classic feel with traditional touches that were updated. I started by finding the bed, being that it is the focal point in the space. I chose this handsome tufted one from Restoration Hardware in a rich and warm brown tone. The nightstands are a neutral seagrass that add so much texture to the space. I love these sconces being that they are classy and functional. The black and gold finish tie in the other hardware finishes in the room. This comfy channeled chair from Cisco Brothers is simply adorable, I love how understated it is while lending the room so much character. The bench and the dresser are both pieces that help keep the colonial style alive! They loved soft blues which I brought out in the accent pillows and bedding. The deep blue rug helps to anchor the space and will help transform the bedroom into a cozy retreat after a long day.

My Favorite Sconces

Sconces are one of my favorites lighting accessories. They can be functional or purely decorative, swing arm or stationary, they come in different textures, colors, styles, and work with any environment. Wall sconces come either hardwired or with a cord. The hardwired sconce has a permanent look and also looks better in a more formal environment. Sconces with cords are very trendy in a casual space and are also easier to change out and less labor for installation. Some of my favorite places to put them are near a bed for a perfect reading light or flanking a piece of art work for extra ambiance. Take a look at these beauties below for some inspiration.

Project Spotlight: Morton Home

I had the pleasure of helping to redecorate a small living room and entertainment area. The client’s were an older couple with 2 dogs and wanted a quiet room to read and also entertain a small group of friends. They wanted a space to seat 4-6 people while leaving a nice flow to the room and not overcrowding it with furniture. The floor plan was very straight forward considering they already had these gorgeous slipper chairs and tufted sofa. We opened up the arrangement and made things symmetrical by flanking the lounge chairs and also pairing them with 2 matching credenzas.

Their favorite colors are blue and red and they had existing chinoiserie artwork that they wanted to include in the design. Their walls I wanted to make a very light greige color that would accentuate their new bold red accents. I also wanted everything to be stay very neutral so that their art work would be the focal point in the room. The gold accents helped to tie everything together. I wanted to incorporate their chinoiserie with subtle asian accents such as the bamboo mirror and curved leg on the credenzas. I absolutely LOVE how this room is going to turn out!

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!
