My daughter, Becky and I, were privileged to have designed the Feminine side of the master suite in the fabulous tudor mansion chosen by the JUNIOR LEAGUE OF DETROIT for their 2014 Designer’s Show House. We chose to depict Hollywood extravagance as the theme for this luxurious bedroom. The mood of the room is soft and elegant wearing calming shades of grey and blue.
The focal point of the room is the large raw silk tufted headboard, custom made for this project. The bedding is also custom designed and chosen to enhance the unrestrained luxury of the silk headboard and fur throw on the bed.
The custom drapery is a simple layered design allowing the luxury fabrics to make the statement. A large geometric print in grey and silver gives character to the design without any of busyness of some prints.
A wallpapered accent wall depicts silver stars of various sizes and shapes applied in a glittering relief pattern. The addition of furnishings finished in mirror and glass along with crystal in accessories imparts an overall sparkle to the neutral shades.
The case goods are reminiscent of Hollywood in it’s most glamorous heyday. Finishes include dark stained wood on the regency styled bookcases and mirror clad surfaces on the dresser.
Lots of mirror, silver and crystal were used in the accessories, they add a sense of opulence and elegance to the ambiance of the room. Most notable is the fabulous modern crystal chandelier dominating the ceiling of the space.
The chair and ottoman are designed for luxury and extreme comfort. Covered in a velvet tiger skin pattern, they combine function and fashion perfectly.
The 1930s Hollywood Regency style was a favorite of celebrities ranging from actress Joan Crawford to the future First Lady, Nancy Reagan. The overall ambiance created is cool, relaxing and elegant, evocative of glamour days gone by… Yet thoroughly modern.
