Soft Traditional Bedroom
Traditional antique pieces along with updated additions help make this a master bedroom anyone would want to relax in. Swirling lamps, soft velvets, textured artwork, custom bedding and drapery harmonize to make this young couple’s master bedroom a welcome retreat after a long day.
This young couple wanted a master bedroom where they could retreat to after a long day. They also had many beautiful and historic antique furniture pieces that her father had collected over a
lifetime in South Carolina. Since his passing, she wanted to be able to bring the pieces from there to her new home here in Tennessee. She did not know which pieces she had in South Carolina that
would work best. They wanted to mix more up-to-date pieces with their antiques. She also wanted a new bed and bedding, additional seating, and did not want “too many” pillows on the bed.
Working from her photographs and measurements of the antique furniture pieces long-distance, I was able to put together space plans for each room in the new home, including this master
bedroom. Antique tables with intricate carvings and marble tops were used at night stands and play host to this simplified poster bed. Blue swirl ceramic base lamps with champagne, handpainted
shades help to give a relaxing mood to the room. Custom bedding with a matelassé cream coverlet, coordinating pillow shams, accent pillow and the bed scarf are all harmonize for a
welcoming and comfortable place to rest. Custom window treatments frame the windows and temper the harsh lines of the shutters. A transitional wool area rug proves a welcome mat for feet
on cold mornings and defines the space. A custom ottoman with traditionally styled legs with sculpted blue navy fabric anchor the base of the bed with the area rug. A custom-made chaise
lounge with soft blue fabric offers a place to read or relax. Unique stacked artwork has a raised and grainy finish to add texture. Sweet bird artwork hangs above the bed to give a finished balance to
the bed wall. An antique mahogany chest is complemented by a metal windowpane mirror which mixes the old with the new in an updated style. A soft blue pallet was brought together with the
custom bedding and wool area rug.
