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.
Consider the occupant's age. For a room in which adults will sleep, neutral shades are popular, but don't be afraid of color. Rich reds and warm browns can create a sultry and romantic mood; gold tones can add a sense of luxury. Consider an accent wall, such as the wall behind the bed's headboard, in a bright or dark color if you feel timid about adding too much color.
The homeowner wanted to redesign their college-aged daughter's bedroom in a way that reflected her older age and personality. In addition to a more adult look to the sleeping area, she needed an organized study space, too. The homeowner's daughter loves everything having to do with France and wanted us to incorporate that theme. She also asked for a lighter feel to the design with color and also minimal pattern.
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.
