In the Bedroom

There are spaces that offer little architectural detail. But I subscribe to the thought there is no problem a little fabric and lots of color can't solve. The empty bedroom below was nothing special. It's located in a stately Washington, DC mid-rise building near the National Cathedral. The occupant has a flair for color and a strong sense of style. Sheer fabric was used to drape the adjoining walls behind the bed. Bead fringe swags topped it off... now, that's special.

Plum and chartreuse pillows....loving it!

A large bedroom window was draped in the same sheer style as behind the bed.

If you have a piece you absolutely love don't get rid of it just because it gets a little torn or tattered.... have it reupholstered in a striking color or pattern.

Pretty in plum

This person needs one of my paintings! Great room, great eye for color.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! Purple is my absolute favourite colour -- it looks fantastic paired with the chartreuse in this bedroom.

The fabric on the sofa is great :-)
