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!
I think working on this project, I was reminded to have a stronger voice in my designs. Some clients are able to see an end result, and some will feel initially more comfortable with staying with what they have and just updating in small ways. These clients were a joy to work with, but we would have progressed more quickly with the re-design had I communicated the benefits of changing the color scheme and furniture layout in a different way from the start.
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.
You aren't limited to the bright purple often found in teen-age girls' bedrooms. A dark eggplant shade or a dusky purple-gray can turn a master bedroom suite into a sophisticated retreat. Lighter versions of purple, such as lavender and lilac, bring the same restful quality to bedrooms as blue does—but without the risk of feeling chilly. A soothing pastel lavender is a great choice for a nursery. You can also mix shades in varying degrees of intensity to create a layered or textured effect.
