Originally, I thought such a large room would need some really bold elements in order to balance the space. I was happy when my plan for layering textures and subtle tones had the same effect in creating the feeling of intimacy the homeowners desired.
The biggest issue in their bedroom before I got my hands on it was the warmth factor. The space just felt too cold. Their previous furniture was circa 1990 and was too matchy-matchy and way too contemporary for the rest of the home. The walls were covered in a goldenrod paint color that matched the hardwood floors, and they really needed a large area rug.
The inspiration for the room started with the geometric fabric used for the ottoman and pillows. The fabric is fun and spirited with a wonderful, fresh color combination. As such the fabric dictated the color palette for the entire room. For the walls, a beautiful, warm, blue color gives the room a tranquil feel which is enhanced by the rich, green color highlighting the back of the built-in cabinetry. On the ceiling a very, very subtle hint of green serves to emphasize the crown molding. Blue chenille on the chairs coordinates with the chenille accents in the ottoman fabric and the rich texture of the shag carpeting. Additionally, beautiful watercolor paintings of local landmarks and a series of watercolor tree prints were chosen for their softness and color palette, and a charming valance with soft pleats in a coordinating fabric completes the space.
The biggest obstacle was the large scale of the two existing tufted sofas the customer wanted to keep. I let their scale lead me to selecting other scaled pieces that would work to balance the room, including the large bergère chairs and rectangular ottoman.
