I am so excited that we are featured in this month’s Flower Magazine! The magazine did a Q&A with me about design, how my business got started and we talked about my recently re-designed guest bedroom & bathroom. It was so much fun to do this interview and here are a few sneak peek photos of the space. Thanks to the talent of Stephen Karlisch for his photography, Margot Shaw, Editor and Alice Doyle, Editorial Director at Flower Magazine for the talented writing and telling of my story.
During this time, when we are all stuck at home a figuring out what works for us and what doesn’t. I wanted to make our guest room beautiful and inviting, but also bold and representative of our own personal style.
The bed I chose was Alexa Hampton for Theodore Alexander. I wanted the fabric to be bold, so I went with a Celerie Kemble for Schumacher stripe in the teal colorway. The chandelier in the room is from Circa Lighting and while it is no longer available, they have several other pendants like this. I love using something that adds a bit of style without being too overwhleming in a smaller bedroom.
Our guest bedding is from Peacock Alley and I recently joined them for an Instagram Live from this bedroom talking about what makes the perfect bed. I love that all of their bedding is super soft, beautiful and adds a level of sophistication to a guest room. The best way to pamper your guests is with beautiful bedding.
To add a little bit of personality I flanked the bed with lamps from my collection with Currey & Co. and added custom lamp shades in Brunschwig & Fils ‘Les Touches’ fabric.
I love any opportunity for a gallery wall and I think it adds some interest on the wall next to the bed. This wall includes so many of the pieces we have collected over the years and is the perfect representation of both Scott and I with masculine AND feminine references. Also, I wanted to add a lumbar pillow in the matching fabric that you see on the lampshades to tie everything together.
These modern yet classic bedside tables are by Michael Berman for Theodore Alexander. They fit perfectly in the space and add a natural wood aspect. I love the interiors of these chests and they allow me to have storage in the room as well which is a big bonus.
Patterned drapery is another area where I love to add some pattern. This Schumacher fabric by Miles Redd was the perfect textile to bring the entire space together. It has colors in the headboard, but also works great with the lampshades and lumbar pillow. A floral that works for everyone!
Onto the bathroom… This is one of my favorite wallpapers from Cole & Son! It was the jumping off point for the entire bathroom. I selected the shower curtain and towels to bring out the blue and orange in the paper, it turned out great! The monkeys hidden in the pattern are my favorite part.
The hardware in a space is like the jewelry that makes an outfit! I fell in love with these beauties from Addison Weeks and had to have them on the cabinetry doors!
I hope you enjoyed the tour and I will be back with more details on the beautiful Theodore Alexander pieces in the room in my next post. To see the full interview and lots more details, click HERE!
