The second important “key ingredient” in my showhouse bedroom is both new custom designed furniture and antique furniture. A focal point in the room is a custom upholstered bed, that I had made at Sanford Furniture. The proportions of this bed work well with the high ceilings in the little bedroom. The bed adds a certain glamour to this room, especially with all the special linens and custom bed treatments! The patterned gold velvet is trimmed in a chocolate velvet. This king size bed really gives this little room a punch! When I first looked at the room, it had two little twin beds and I knew right away that a king bed would really make a statement in this room!
But my favorite pieces of furniture in this room are the custom bedside tables that I designed with Landon of the Gilded Stag! I wanted a “gothic note” for these pieces and Landon did a fabulous job with the design and execution of these bedside tables! They are an off white with a chocolate glaze . Sadly, the ends with gothic arches and antique mirror don’t show in the photography. So I thought you might enjoy the drawings that Landon made for my approval.
The small round ottoman in front of two antique leather chairs is a perfect place for a drinks tray or to put up your feet while reading!
No “collected room” by Kathryn Greeley Designs would be complete with several antique pieces of furniture! This lovely antique Scottish chest was a perfect fit for this little corner.
This wonderful little barley twist gateleg table , from Vivian Metzger Antiques of Cashiers was also a perfect fit in this other corner!
All these Key Ingredient pieces came together perfectly in this tiny little bedroom.
Enjoy! And stay tuned for the next Key Ingredients!
