Be my guest....

When it came time to create a well resolved interior to this south facing guest bedroom the brief was to make an elegant sanctuary.  This was achieved through layering textures while using a neutral colour palette and I must admit to being delighted with the results.  To the walls we put a monochromatic striped paper (I love the stripes!) that has a pearl effect for a subtle shimmer;  this is emphasized  by the bedside lamps.

Continuing the elegance, luxurious taffeta curtains installed close to the ceiling to emphasize height then indulgently puddle to the floor, while the linen buttoned bedhead adds a further element of texture and play on light.  

The contrasting finishes in the room help create depth and interest. The wallpaper, taffeta and velvet cushion  each have slightly reflective surfaces, these along with the white linen combine to make the room feel light and inviting.  

I look forward to sharing my next project with you.
