Peaceful and Blue

A room of soft blues is very calming to the soul. The owner of this home wanted a calm retreat for entertaining guests or simply to take a nap! She already owned the sofa and chairs and wanted to update the room. So we used a heather blue velvet on the sofa and updated the style with a long bolster pillow inlaid with a wide creme trim. A fabulous Romo silk print updated the classic chairs that were originally in her bedroom. Finishing touches of mirrored chests, painted sconces, and silver nail heads added a little grey to the mix. The boucle' drapery fabric has the texture of a couture sweater and hangs softly from the simple rosettes at the top of this beautifully detailed window. Anchoring the entire space is a faux bois printed rug in a pale taupe.
This room is peaceful and a beautiful place to entertain guests or just read a book!
