The largest issue in the space was the off-center placement of the fireplace on the back wall. In order to address this issue, furniture was arranged in a circular seating group which served as a distraction from the fireplace placement and made the room feel balanced. In addition, this arrangement took advantage of the predominately square shape of the room and encouraged conversation, whether enjoying the fireplace or the view through the window.
In designing this room for the Baltimore Symphony Decorators’ Show House, the goal was to create a warm and inviting space that would emphasize the room’s wonderfully quaint size, the elegant fireplace and the beautiful view from the window. In addition, I wanted to create a space that felt interesting and fresh yet was still true to the traditional architecture of the home. To accomplish this task, I used current, colorful fabrics to upholster furniture with traditional lines and added lighting and accessories to create the perfect balance of refined and modern.
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.
You'll also want to consider whether you want to paint your walls in solid colors or include patterns. Stripes, stencil patterns, sponge painting and textures can add a touch of style to any bedroom. Consider a colorful mural in a childvs room for a personal touch. Smaller patterns lend themselves to a more traditional look; larger geometric patterns, bold stripes and sweeps are compatible with a more contemporary look. For a truly unique look consider a pattern or mural on the bedroom ceiling, or consider painting your ceiling the same shade as your walls. Some interior designers recommend ordering your ceiling paint with reduced colorant so the ceiling's color saturation will be about half the strength of your wall paint.
