Generally, the Master Bedroom is the last room in the house to get any attention and this client’s home was no exception. All of the furniture that hadn’t found a special place and the oddball pieces made their way here. It was time for a change.
She wanted it to be feminine, but not too much. She loved soft colors…blues especially. This sitting room was off the Master, of which I had painted a beautiful blue, so I wanted this sitting room to have a different ratio of colors. There was to be a space for her, one for him and comfort was of utmost importance.
I was first inspired by the piece I found for the space that you can see to the right…a Chinese Chippendale frame surrounding a pair of blue birds. It looked like a soft summer day to me, so I decided to create the “rest of the afternoon” in the space it would crown.
For him, a very comfortable chair with a good depth and handsome style. For her, a soft loveseat to sit, curl up in or just relax. To stretch their legs in front of the sunny window or to relax before bed, an ottoman and a half. It will not only make sitting more enjoyable, it can hold a tray of tea or catch a book set down mid-chapter. The old, flat carpet was replaced with a rich Oak floor under the client’s rug. Once a mismatched space, it now is the perfect spot to share morning coffee.
Make it fab!
