Rest your weary head

Its odd to me that when I am consulting with a client and we get to the master bedroom it is almost always the room they decide to scale back or be extremely conservative with their budget. Your bedroom is the one place in your home that is a refuge for you, not your children, not your childrens friends, not your neighbors... it is for you. You should be able to close the door and decompress. I have posted some pictures of some beds I have enjoyed creating for clients, I will post some more later. I hope you enjoy them and who knows they might inspire you to create your own dream rest your weary head.

These clients have a really great transitional sensibility when it comes to their own personal style. Everything we have done is clean with a little twist of contemporary. The bedroom has a beautiful sitting room with a fireplace and the ceiling has a tray which we have wallpapered in a beautiful faux painted anaglypta paper...extremely warm and relaxing without being too "done".

I love this bedroom. The walls are finished with a paint that almost resembles a glaze. The homeowner doesnt like alot of pillows so we made the bedspread with a pillow tuck which looks beatiful and finished. The fabric on the top of the bed is a beautiful silk with velvet appliqued flowers and embroidered vines we outline quilted the velvet for texture. The attached bedskirt is a silk stripe that we gathered and the canopy is the coordinating plaid to that stripe. We decided to do silk embroidered relaxed roman shades on the windows so as not to take away from the beautiful bed.

This bedroom is a work in progress but I had to show it to you anyway because I was so pleased with the way the linens came out. This is a great example of mixing ready made with custom bedding. Our inpiration for this bed was when my client fell in love with the silk embroided european shams from Pine Cone Hill. Next we found the quilted floral shams also from Pine Cone Hill. The top of the bedspread is fabric we found on a bolt at Williams and Sherrill that matched the shams beautifully. We diamond quilted the fabric to give it a very luxurious loft. The attached skirt is a silk with velvet stripes and the cording between the top of the bed and skirt is a decorative cord that matched perfectly. The boudoir pillow is grey velvet with a fun tassel trim and the monogram is to die for. We are thinking of a high scrolly French bed...what do you think?
