During the renovation of our house I decided to also tackle our master bedroom. Now, our new bedroom is completed and I couldn’t be happier!
I used some beautiful wallpaper from Osborne & Little called Grove Garden. Once I saw this wallpaper, I knew that it would be the jumping off point for this bedroom. It still takes my breath away every time I see it!
Recently, I had this lovely little stool custom made from Hickory Chair and it looks so fresh against the aquamarine background of the wallpaper. One of my own personal favorite pieces of art is this charming charcoal drawing by Cathy Daley who is represented by Newzones Gallery here in Calgary. We have used Kathy’s beautiful abstract drawings of female figures in several of our projects because they are so lighthearted and full of movement. I have had this piece for several years, but it never felt like it belonged where I hung it until this bedroom was finished. It looks perfect!
The master bedroom ceiling was beyond boring so I added some architectural detailing. Since the wallpaper had a garden like quality I wanted the ceiling to feel like a trellis. My fabulous carpenter and I worked out some ideas and came up with this geometric pattern that really is incredible! 400 linear feet of the small cove molding was used to create it. Since the ceiling was only 8 feet high I had all of the moldings and drywall painted the same white colour in a flat finish so that it wouldn’t be too overwhelming. Originally, I was considering doing all the moldings in a black gloss finish, and now I am so glad that I changed my mind and painted it all white!
The leading edge of the drapery was outlined with a beautiful undulating trim from Kravet. Sometimes, all that you need is a little trim to bring something plain to life! The little pillow on the chair was also custom made. I adore the pleated fabric on the sides. The black and white botanical fabric with the cheerful yellow bird is from Jab one of my favorite fabric companies.
The duvet cover and euro shams with the black pinstripe are from Restoration Hardware, but I mixed in a few other pieces that I found from here and there. Many of the accessories are from a lovely store here in Calgary called Peridot which we frequent regularly for our clients.
It truly is a luxury to have a marvelous master bedroom and I feel spoiled every time I enter this room! There is nothing better then going to sleep in a space that is a little piece of heaven and waking up to colours that enliven you.
