Fluffing

Preamble:  Today is the FOURTH day this month that schools are closed here for dangerously cold temps.  As in, the high today is projected to be -6.  The low?  -22.  Those are raw temps before any of that wind chill nonsense.

So let's talk about cozying up a bedroom, shall we?

Lots of designers don't "fluff" a space, bringing in textiles and accessories, but I have to say, it can be pretty satisfying, and the gratification is instant.

I have a new client who has a solid set of Pottery Barn furniture and a pale grey wall color that she likes, but her space lacks personality.  She contacted me to bring a little life to the room.  She wanted the room to feel cozy, finished, and not too feminine, and she didn't want a lot of stuff.  She was VERY open to color palette and look, so I put together 4 boards with fairly different vibes to see where she was at.

Calm and fresh:



warm and Cheerful:


Modern and masculine:


It's amazing how different these spaces can feel based simply on textiles and accessories.

None of these are the direction we ended up going....hopefully we'll have a before and after soon--just waiting on the linen roman shades!

If you're local, stay warm.....
