We had spring break last week, so rather than heading to the beach like any normal person, we stayed & worked on the One Room Challenge instead! Last week I showed you the floor plan & the mood board filled with blues & whites. Well this week I wanted to share some of the neutral pieces that will be filling the space as well.
My main goals with my client’s bedroom were to have it be light & bright, as well as a relaxing retreat away from their quickly approaching home renovation. With this being one of the only untouched areas in the renovation I wanted to also keep the feel of the home cohesive with the new design plans & existing furnishings throughout the rest of the home.
I choose to keep all of the major furniture pieces in neutral finishes or lighter wood tones to provide a beautiful backdrop for all of the blue accent pieces to jump off of. I will also be mixing a couple of metals in this space. The homes hardware will be an oil rubbed bronze, so I thought it important to carry this finish throughout the space within the drapery rod from Joss & Main & the Crystorama chandelier. Both of these pieces have beautiful crystal orbs to help bring a little more sparkle & elegance into the space. I am also bringing in some chrome accents. The chrome goes well with all of the cool blue tones & coordinates with the mirrored nightstands my client already owns. Mixing all of these tones, finishes & patterns will add a lot of interest in what could have been just a standard blue bedroom.
During our week off we received most of our items shown above and painted the room in the most beautiful Farrow & Ball shade, Borrowed Light. (I haven’t started on my soon to be favorite closet project yet…)
We also installed the showstoppers… the Tonic Living Drapery Panels!! I cannot wait to share an overall shot of these beauties as we had them made with a simple inverted pleat to let the to die for Shibori pattern shine. They have literally brought this space to life.
The new rug, from RugsUSA, was unrolled & put in place. This was an alternate option as our first choice was no longer available. But this was one of those serendipitous moments because it is perfect for the space.
This week we will be installing the light fixtures, unwrapping boxes & getting ready for “project skinny closet!”
