Blue Skies on a Gray Day

I finally went over to one of my favorite customer's home to take pictures of a new room that we have been working on during the past several months. I was afraid that the pictures would not come out well since it was a very snowy, gray day in Chicago. But the beautiful blues in the room prevailed! This is one of my favorite rooms that we have ever done. Kathy wanted a multi purpose room, TV, games, crafts, dinners, etc. So to create that multi-functional space, our upholsterer built benches on wheels, that can be rolled to wherever needed. The long table is great for dinners, puzzles, cards, just anything! It is a reproduction of a Swedish bakery table that is made from reclaimed wood. French toile drapery, framed antique herbs, crusty wall sconces, and a sisal rug combine to give a calming palette. Laurell glazed the sky blue walls to give an antique appearance to the space. The large console under the television is a reproduction from Italy, and the scale and color of it are perfect for this room. We added a bouquet of mixed hydrangeas, sea sponges, and candlesticks for the finishing touches.
