SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME . . .
So it’s late and I’ve been working and packing like a crazy woman to get ready for vacation! Anyone ever feel like going on vacation is a ton of work?! But we ALL love it…right?
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer…we have been busy at AFI with a gorgeous Master Bedroom update in Mount Pleasant with several items to share.
MASTER BEDROOM DESIGN – WORKING WITH WHAT YOU LOVE
As a client, one of my favorite things about Alexandre, is how much she loves to incorporate pieces that we already have and adore! The homeowners have a very special piece in their master bedroom, their ketubah. The ketubah, a traditional Jewish marriage agreement, is a precious work of art, and we treated it as such. We used a larger white linen mat and a flat frame in rubbed gold to put the focus on this treasure.
The next item that Alexandre incorporated into the design, was a very functional piece from IKEA. It is a favorite due to it’s space consideration and functionality for shoe storage.
INCORPORATING EXISTING FURNITURE – WITH A TWIST
Alexandre took a very ordinary piece and gave it some pizazz with these amazing Acrylic and Gold Lumiere T knobs – in Satin Brass from Schaub. See another example of switching out hardware for a new look.
The surrounding walls were also updated with a beautiful grasscloth from Thibaut. Stablewood in metallic silver gives the walls a shimmery glow and bounces light around in an otherwise dark room.
REFLECTIVE WALLPAPER – FEELING INSPIRED?
We love working with Thibaut. We know that we will always have high quality materials and a large selection of gorgeous patterns and textures. Take a look at this wall in the Thibaut showroom at Highpoint with all the beautiful shimmering wallcoverings. Fabulous! Do you recognize anything from the master bedroom project above?
It’s easy to fall in love with the style and functionality of a particular piece of furniture that you already own. A good designer can incorporate it into your new space. A GREAT designer can add more beauty, more functionality, more pizzaz and make you love it even more!
There are so many more exciting pieces to come in this gorgeous update…stay tuned!
