This owner of this master above had a wonderful eclectic collection of found pieces so it was truly a joy to makeover this master using existing furnishings during a local TV segment.  To start I imagined a tropical serene space where all the cares of the day would disappear so adding a palm tree and replacing darker fabrics with lighter feminine touches seemed appropriate along with adding the pampered feel of breakfast in bed.  Just imagine how nice it would be to wake up to this room every morning!

This owners of this master had begun to create their design previously with this gorgeous raspberry comforter and chocolate leather bed but needed a little help to complete the look of their space.

Since they obviously had a taste for Asian style, I continued the theme by placing inexpensive bamboo shoots behind the bed, layered over a richly textured raspberry designer grasscloth plus custom bamboo blinds to convey a peaceful setting where they can relax at the end of a long day.

In the master below which is still a work in progress, I snapped a quick photo (sorry about the quality) after we finished installing a custom designed cornice board and beautiful duponi silk draperies along with a  velvet textured taupe wall hanging.  Doesn’t it look wonderful with our custom mohair wingback bed, mirror nightstands, hanging lamps and designer fabrics?!   Pefect for a Hollywood glam space that’s not too feminine.  I’m ready to dive in and spend the day lounging even though the space isn’t finished.  What about you?!
