Like everyone else, I've been pouring over your archives and love your design and direct approach...we are adding a garage with an upstairs master suite so we can hide from teenagers. :-) The architecture is Pacific NW contemporary--we have natural fir trim and windows, natural cherry cabinets, cork floors. It should be done in the next 6 weeks so I need to order some furniture. Your ideas are incredible and thought you would be able to help me overcome my disjointed, un-unified, multi-focal pointed ideas...perhaps make some decisions and finally get a good night's sleep?
Floor plan with some preliminary furniture placement ideas.
Re: master bedroom
We have a shaker style cherry bedroom bureau and bed that i need to use for now. Any ideas for nightstands to alleviate matchy-matchy.. Our bed is actually queen size.Was thinking of grasscloth behind bed under soffit. You had featured some thibault hakka grass "aqua" that seemed nice. Chair, rug, window coverings? Was thinking of aquas/blues to key off tv room rug but not sure what kind of rug.
Looking into bedroom (pendant isn't fully installed)
Looking into tv room. I really need some ideas for sectional in terms of style and color, considering rug. This room is just for lounging and more of a personal space. Even though the foto doesn't show it, the room gets a lot of light as it has western and southern exposure.
Existing 6x9 rug I would like to use in tv room.
Flower pendant is in bedroom. Tile is in bar nook in tv room. Lower pendant is in bathroom. Fabrics are some I'm drawn to although no amber tones in them, which seems important but I'm not sure.
What do you think of this bedding? Not enough blue?
Thank you in advance for any advice!
Let's start with selecting a night stand. I applaud you for not wanting to match. Since you have a wood finish, perhaps you could add a painted finish on the end table, ($560)
with a great set of lamps ($217 ea) (I'm not so sure about your pendants...)
and an upholstered headboard.
(bed from Restoration hardware- available in a lot of different colors so you can find a good one)
I also wanted to mention that you did a great job on your furniture placement. I wouldn't change a thing. (FYI- I ALMOST NEVER TELL PEOPLE THAT- YOU DID A REALLY GOOD JOB!)
I like your idea of grasscloth. I would even consider it throughout the room. I found a good one for you from Phillip Jeffries:
The grasscloth would pair beautifully with some Belgian Linen drapes from Restoration Hardware: (Why can I not see, type or say the word Belgian without wanting chocolate...)
When I see your architecture, I think "Room and Board."- so that is where I looked for furniture:
I love your rug, it is a terrific rug, and makes a great unifier. It should be your source for your color pallet. I can tell that the colors in the fabrics you found might technically, "match" the rug, but they don't go. There is a definite disconnect. This is common, that people will match without coordinating. For example- look at your materials board altogether:
Now, look at mine:
The bedding is from Anthropologie, and the furnishings are form Room and Board. The pillows are a combination of both sources. You are on the right track. I like the stone you selected, and love your rug. Just change all of the other selections. ;-) Your place will look beautiful! It makes me want a sectional in my master bedroom...
