I think everything looks pretty close to my original design. There were a few personal accent and furniture items that I hadn’t anticipated having to reuse, but that’s what makes the design come to life.
There are so many things that came together to form the cohesive look. The stone capital was used as a console at the end of the room and actually was architectural salvage from a building torn down in Philadelphia. The vintage brass lanterns on either side of the bay add to the collected look. I think they came from a mod-1950s Italian restaurant. The custom-fitted seat in the bay window was a splurge but worthwhile. The giant plaster hand came from an estate sale.
The hidden gems in this design are the custom night stands that I had made by my carpenter. The couple loved the dresser for this space and wanted a similar but different look for the night stands. So we kept the same shape, added appliqués to the drawer fronts, and painted the pair with black lacquer. After that, we popped on fancy mother of pearl knobs!
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.
