Whenever I start a new project, I always have a jumping off point. A spark of inspiration that influences the whole design from start to finish. It is different every single time and I get that question a lot. “What is your inspiration?”
It really depends on so many different factors like the space, the location of the property, the function of the room, and of course the client! For this project in particular, I really wanted to take it outside the box. The whole design was centered around the pheasant wallpaper. It was the first thing I saw and I just could not resist!
I took inspiration from the paper in the color palette, of course, but I didn’t stop there. The paper gave me a feeling of old Hollywood glamour with a pumped up modern day sophistication. That led me to the vintage penny tiles on the floor. I wanted something that was going to blend well with the paper but also give a punch. Hint- mixing shapes and patterns works when the scale of the patterns is different.
Now, this is used primarily as a powder room, so the shower wasn’t a big focal point. I chose to dress it in ceiling to floor silk drapery that would mimic the sheen in the wallpaper and add another texture. The custom made vanity adds that modern shape and brings it into this century with the chrome faucet and cabinet hardware.
The icing on the cake is the sconces. Be still my heart, those sconces!! Traditional silhouette with cut crystal finials that drip from the bottom of each light. It does not get any better than that! I would say that this remodel isn’t even recognizable as it’s previous self. Happily ever after, indeed!
