Our client requested a `hotel` look bedroom, elegant yet comfortable. The starting point was the main fabric used on the curtains and bed throw. The colours were taken from this for the walls, carpet and accessories. A cabinet maker made all the furniture and it was sprayed in dark charcoal.
The curtains have a goblet heading trimmed with crystal buttons and edged with bead, they are lined in an antique gold satin. We chose a texture wallpaper in a neutral colour to balance the scheme. The main feature of the room is the bed with its elaborate headboard in crushed velvet with crystal buttons. It was dressed with simple cushions and a decorative throw edged with bead to match the curtains.
Our customer wanted to achieve a stylish guest bedroom using existing furniture. We chose blackout roman blinds as the main window function dressed with a decorative puff headed voile trimmed with bead, dressed back with wooden holdbacks. A textured glitter effect wallpaper was used as a restful backdrop for the recovered headboard and matching bed valance.
The bed was dressed with simple white bedding with cushions and bed throw in a bolder pattern. The foundation of the scheme was to use the more expensive fabric frugally and team it with a less expensive one for the larger areas. The bedroom was on budget and the desired effect achieved.
