Showhouse Bedroom

Color palette for the bedroom. Love the Brentano velvet in the center!

A few weeks ago I shared the bathroom design I was doing for the upcoming ASID Showhouse in Sienna Plantation, in the Houston area. I was still tweaking the bedroom, but everything is almost done now so I'd love to share some of the beautiful fabrics and interesting furnishings I'm using in the space.

This is my imaginary client, "Phoebe", an older teen girl, maybe a freshman or sophomore in college, visiting home on holidays and summer. She is a free spirit, artistic, creative, smart, and opinionated. She has an unpredictable sense of style, a bit bohemian but not dark and sloppy.....more happy and pretty.

The floor plan shows the queen bed pushed up in the near corner of the room so that Phoebe can have a nice lounge area to spend some private time with her home friends away from the family. Her bed is so puffy and inviting that she can lounge there with her laptop amongst all her colorful pillows while glancing out the French doors to the beautiful view beyond. She has a balcony and the best view of the house.....nothing but the best for our Phoebe!

Her eclectic spirit is evident here with Grandmother's old chair frame, upholstered in a new bright print fabric with legs painted in Phoebe's favorite turquoise.

Chair fabric, Thom Felicia for Kravet

The mix of a mid-century modern chrome lamp, an antique painted nightstand, and a velvet ottoman make for a unique combination.

The other corner has a tall leaning mirror (Phoebe can see herself from everywhere in the room) and a unique metal tree that serves as a jewelry holder and whimsical art project. Phoebe decorates it with various crystals and beads as her mood changes.

A ghost chair and mid-century modern dresser highlight the mix.

(My grandmother's dresser from the 1950's. Love the serpentine base.)

It will be painted SW Sassy Green.

with some lucite knobs.

If you are in the Houston area in April, please come and visit the Showhouse! Open April 1st through 17th, Tuesdays through Sundays, closed Mondays.

Carla, What a wonderful room! I love the fabrics. I wish I could get over to Houston to see the entire house.

My daughters would love their rooms to have Phoebe's style!!

You are so talented. Love the fabrics. I want to be Phoebe.

If Phoebe were a real young woman she'd love this room. One of my favorite elements is the unique jewelry holder.

Looks like a great set of plans. Can't wait to see it all finished. I'm working on the upstairs landing for the Symphony Designer House here in Little Rock. Will finish it this weekend. Has had me more stressed than usual. So many critical eyes on your work!

Great palette..and like you I LOVE the rich and comfortable and elegant. I know Sassy green, we painted my nieces room that color and it came out incredible....she wanted it even brighter but this was the agreed upon color between mom and daughter and it looks fabulous. Look forward to seeing more pics of the finished product!!
