My previous post about the Bulgari ad as inspiration got me dreaming of a wonderfully decadent ladies sitting room that I would design. When my March issue of “The World Of Interiors” came…that sealed it…I had to put together concept imagery for this imaginary room.
“The World of Interiors” has a terrific feature on London Design Week styled by Jessica Hayns and Maud Hewlings. The theme is Medieval…sumptuous fabrics to brighten the dungeon. I couldn’t help be reminded of the Bulgari Ad.
These yummy velvets are so decadent! I can totally see them in my imaginary ladies sitting room! Photography by Ricardo Labougle.
Next, I found this wonderful Small 19th Century Louis XVI Banquette from 1st dibs…the listing mentions that the settee is to be reupholstered…I’d keep it like this. I absolutely love the patina of age. I feel that it takes the preciousness out of the piece and makes it feel more accessible. A nice rough luxe juxtaposition…
I absolutely ADORE the Schumacher Nest line of feather wallpapers and this sitting room is the perfect opportunity to utilize Cascadia from the line. I would apply these to the walls to envelope the space with this luminescent blue-green organic opulence.
Here’s the finished conceptual proposal for my elegant ladies sitting room. The effect is a moody, dark, and lush room to relax and feel pampered in.
