This scan is from the September 2011 issue of House & Home magazine (still not sure when or why the ‘Canadian’ part of the title went missing… but I digress). It’s from a weekend decorating article that gives some sweet ideas for taking your interiors up a notch with DIY projects.
The lovely bedroom above is the final page of the feature. The editors suggest “imperfect paint”. I just love the colors and textures. God help me if I’m ever able to find out who makes the fabric/duvet cover on the bed. Those painterly stripes are gorgeous. I really like the lamp to the left of the bed as well (another project from the article) and the Farrow & Ball paint in ‘Setting Plaster’. Plus, who wouldn’t want an ebonized book case with antique gilt edging and loads of vintages books on it as a headboard?
Happy Tuesday! I hope this inspires you as much as it did me!
Inspired by this bedroom (which I found out, after drooling over it for awhile, was designed by Miles Redd)… some pretty things I’d like to have for my dream bedroom.
Farrow & Ball – The Lotus Papers wallpaper
Carini Lang – Mums silk rug
Anthropologie – Italian Campaign canopy bed
John Reeves – Louis Side tables
West Elm – Fluted Glass Lamps (in the iridescent grey color with custom shades)
Atmosphere print – JKLDesign (@Etsy)
Viviana print – Sandra Suy on (@Etsy)
Manon Lescaut bust
Still on the lookout for the perfect bedding, though I’m a fan of Dwell Studio, Thomas O’Brien for Target, and, occasionally, Anthropologie’s bed linens… I need ideas for a cool lamp shade fabric too. Have you got any suggestions for my pink, grey, and silver dream room?
