Louisville Nests: A Room of Firsts
Our next Louisville Nest is my sister’s nest! Anyone who knows my sister knows she has great taste, so I was excited about helping her design the bedroom in her new home. This became a room of firsts for her.
Although her previous bedrooms had been pulled together nicely, this was her first room to be designed from scratch. The room is long and narrow so she needed large furniture pieces to fill the space.
We started with a tufted upholstered bed frame in a charcoal gray fabric. She has always loved mirrored pieces, so this chest with antiqued glass was a no-brainer for her nightstand. To balance out the other side of the room, we selected this oversized double dresser in a distressed charcoal finish.
Every Bedroom Needs Seating
We added a sitting area at the end of the room with this fabulous berringer chair and ottoman in a light fabric with a herringbone pattern. To keep the space open to the dressing room, we leaned an oversized mirror against the wall.
Anyone who knows my sister knows green is her favorite color, so this is the first time she has had a room done in blues. I usually pull paint colors from a fabric or piece of art in a room, but we had to select a paint color prior to designing the space. She fell in love with this subtle blue paint color, and we selected fabrics to coordinate.
First Timer Over Here
This is also the first time she has had custom bedding and window treatments for her bedroom, and the combination of fabrics is striking. To conceal the dressing room, we had a grommeted panel made – a great combination of function and style.
Color is a Must
Anyone who knows my sister knows she has to have some color in her room. We brought that in with the artwork in vivid colors. The overall feel of the room is soothing with pops of color dispersed throughout. This is the first time my sister likes spending time in her bedroom. Enjoy!
