Happily Ever After…

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!

  1. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people do not speak about such topics. To the next! All the best!!

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks

  3. Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

    1. I would definitely recommend starting with a WordPress site to get started. I went through all of the different templates and went with something that I thought was a good visual option for my business as well as a blog site. Hope this helps! Good Luck!
