Remember this post when I showed you the fabrics I had chosen for a guest bedroom I was designing for a client?
Well here it is, almost done! The carpet will be replaced next (throughout the entire floor) so don’t look too closely at it.

The tufted velvet ottoman is on Lucite legs so that’s why it appears to be floating.
Here’s the before photo. My client’s daughter had just moved out and she was turning it into a guest room!

The custom bedskirt is linen and the shams and drapery fabric are from Robert Allen Fabrics.
I’m a big fan of the ‘hotel chic’ look, thus the store-bought-high-thread-count white cotton duvet cover (it has tiny squares in it but you can’t see them in the photos). I also love it when the stripes are railroaded so that they are horizontal instead of vertical!!
The wall colour was chosen first (the painter was coming) and she had just bought the art from a gallery so we chose a warm taupe to pick up the soft grays in the photography.
Then I found the chair and decided to combine it with the hot pink for a hit of colour and drama!
And the photos are taken by me (not a photographer) but I picked up one tip so far and that is, shoot from an angle–not the way I shot the before picture!
And I am missing a flower in these photos but the ones I brought ended up looking too traditional so I nixed them at the last minute.
I have another big installation tomorrow! Should be fun, I always love installation day!
