more werk

August 22, 2012

I’ve been working on this mid-century architectural home and my client really wants the items we select to feel period.  She is also drawn to really modern objects and furnishings.

We have approached her home with the perspective that we will be respectful of the period in which the home was built (1964), but with modern updates.

I had this gorgeous Nina Campbell wallpaper installed and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  The pattern in the paper feels so 1960’s, but the hand drawn flowers outlined in black make it feel more modern and updated.

Paired with a 1960’s danish modern rocker upholstered in Knoll fabric with a cushion in a China Seas linen, a custom night table, a custom bed also in Knoll fabric and vintage lamp and you have the perfect mix of modern and vintage all in one.

It was so good, I didn’t want to leave…

new bedding

August 20, 2012

I just got some new bedding.  I was ready for a change and we really needed new sheets.  I was getting tired of the all white and I have this black and white ikat duvet cover that I got at West Elm a while back, but I’ve still just been using my white sheets.

Today I went bold for me and mixed and matched some blue bedding from Roberta Roller Rabbit.

I’ve also been loving this Bruschwig & Fils Dzhambul fabric and have been thinking I would make 3 euro shams for my bed but I haven’t been able to make up my mind…

Here are my multiple bedding options, I was feeling like I wanted to change the wall color behind my bed, but now I’m thinking maybe no, just go for the Dzhambul istead.

What do you think, do I do the Dzhambul, do I paint the wall, do I do both, nothing??? Decorating for myself is such a challenge!!!

Here is the new fitted sheet and blue shams, bold move for me as my bed is usually all white.

Here it is paired with the Dzhambul fabric that I like…I’ll still have my white duvet which will mostly cover the busy sheet.  What do you think?

When I want a change of pace, here is my black and white ikat bedding.  I know, my duvet cover needs a serious ironing, tell it to my 2 year old and 5 1/2 year old…

nurseries avec wallpaper

August 19, 2012

I’ve had a lot of nurseries and kids rooms come my way lately.  Something I love to put in a baby’s room is wallpaper.

Parents spend a lot of time in their children’s rooms.  Wallpaper can make a child’s room feel a little more sophisticated, a little more grown up.

who doesn’t want a star wallpaper ceiling!?!?!

quick one
