Inspired by a sophisticated wallcovering, my intention was to create a space that was a visual treat to view from the bed on the opposite side of the room.
An earthy palette, mixed with the right amount of white keeps the space from looking too serious and creates a refreshing and classic look.
An eclectic mix of traditional furnishings, lighting and accessories give the space heart, and a myriad of textures give the space soul.
I used a French door, painted white, instead of a traditional bedroom door, to allow the light from the windows in the Sitting Area to spill out into the hallway. If privacy is an issue, a quick and easy fix would be to frost the panes of glass. That way light would still shine through, but create privacy at the same time.
The apothecary-style console table is the first thing you see when entering the room. It’s a fun piece of furniture to be greeted by, with all it’s tiny drawers, and its surface provided a space for an interesting “balustrade” table lamp, fresh flowers and other accessories. It’s height doesn’t obstruct the view out the window, which is always a plus.
I used tall beadboard wainscotting to give the space charm. It also makes for a nice visual transition from the height of the settee, coffee table and console table up to the height of the ceiling and drapes. It gives the elevation a fully balanced look.
The window alcove was the perfect spot for a settee. The dark wood on the one I chose really draws your eye to that spot, and is a nice contrast to the whiteness of the wainscotting on either side.
Grasscloth wallpaper on the center of the ceiling pulls the entire look together, like a big warm hug!
Sage, Cream , Dusty Green, Brown and White
I’ll post the results of the Bedroom side of the room soon.
What a fun project this has been!
