Romance in the bedroom... sort of

We are thrilled to show you the latest bedroom we just completed! The client has a beautiful home that is new construction but feels old and is packed full of character. It has a coastal romantic vibe that we wanted to carry into her bedroom. Her only request: We had to use Gramma's sofa. We love a challenge and mixing in heirloom pieces. It's even more fun when the client gives us creative freedom in making it current...
We used Ben Moore Beach Glass in an oil lacquer for the wood trim and recovered the sofa in a Robert Allen linen. 
Here is the Duncan Phyfe sofa pre-makeover... See the potential... love the lines? Would you have brought this home or left it in your mom's garage? Any heirloom piece can be made current and fun with the right paint and fabrics. 
 The added contrasting ivory fabric on the back of the piece gives it texture and character. 
 We also added linen pillows, and a new ottoman and rug from Overstock to ground the space. 
We slip covered some existing chairs that had very modern lines. By shortening the skirt and adding tiny pleats, we gave them a tailored yet shabby chic, romantic look. 
 
The client found the magazine rack at a thrift shop in town and painted it  Beach Glass.


Isn't it just so cozy? We accessorized with natural elements and kept the color palate of grays, creams and blues. 

The room has an amazing fireplace that beckons you to curl up with a good book. We didn't,(because that would have been awkward) but we know the family that lives here will!


The bed is opposite the sitting area and so cozy with layers of the same colors and of course... 
 We had to add a little faux fur. The hobnail lamps were also a great find.

See the door in the picture above? It opens to this...
 
a beautiful screen porch. Can you ever have too many fire places?
Isn't it just so romantic and inviting? What do you think... Do you like how it turned out? Do you have any pieces that you are hesitant to re-do? Email pictures to birdsofafeather@gmail.com and we can give you some suggestions.
 
Bye bye birdie...
