A Restful Retreat


My best friend moved into her new home and one of her top priorities was to decorate her bedroom. She wanted a retreat space to relax after being on her feet all day at work. When I first walked into the room, I knew that I wanted to use wallpaper in the sitting area but I had to convince my friend that walls needed texture and pop. She was not a fan of wallpaper. She envisioned her room with:
Upholstered headboard
Seating at the foot of the bed
Custom bedding and window treatments
Earth tone colors
** Always Kiss Me Goodnight** must be on the wall somewhere
Seating for sitting room
NO WALLPAPER!!
In my design presentation we were going over the elements for the room and she loved everything. I purposely waited last to pitch the sitting room. I showed her a sketch of the sitting room with wallpaper to give her a visual of what the room would look like with texture on the walls. Her eyes popped, “OMG, I love this, did you bring a sample so I can we see how it would look on the wall”. The rest is history.


The earth tone colors accented with custom blue bedding and draperies gives the room that serene feel. Instead of using 2 night stands, I decided to compliment the space with an oversized night stand and writing table with an upholstered chair. The small sofa is perfect seating to take off your shoes after a long work day. The sitting area is the go to spot to have that quiet time and read in the comfortable club chairs.
