Here's a peek at the master suite I'm working on. My client wants a soothing blue, spa-like space. Her own pair of coral silver prints served as inspiration for the motif and the color scheme. I thought we were on the same page, blues and whites with silver and crystal accents, until I mentioned layering in creams, textured natural fabric and golds to warm an otherwise dull and cold palette. While I personally don't care for mixing silver and gold on the body, I think it's a necessity in home decor. We dress every morning, but a home is supposed to feel layered and evolved over time. So far she's a bit resistant. So here's hoping my first mood board can help nudge her along. I know it's hard to see so tiny, so check out the photos below.
I'll use lots of antiqued mirror (hopefully framed in silvery gold). I love the idea of a little lucite end table in the sitting area. Any good resources?
Trims and fixtures with warm accents will give the room depth. Notice how the brass floor lamp mixes beautifully with sterling silver desk accessories.
My idea for the hallway leading to the master bath is mirrors inset in panel moulding. It will brighten the short dark hallway from the bedroom to the bath area. I especially love the warmth of the antique gold light fixtures, camel leather wing chair and the dark beige coral on the mantel.
For the bath area, I found this Thibaut paper which made me fall for coral motifs all over again. It is TDF in person. Aqua rice paper with hand blocked metallic coral in three shades of blue and silver. The silver picks up the veins of the carrera marble I'm using on the countertops.
While this photo doesn't necessarily reflect the style we're going after, it has the layered blue tones and gilded frames we'll use. I'll keep you all posted!
