This is my sexy room. It just is. My client was adorable when we started this project. A woman, obviously. She had been divorced before she moved to Manhattan. She had furniture, but wanted to keep nothing but this bed, which she had recently purchased. (I confess, I was glad to hear it. The big green monster in the living room was, I think, suppose to be a sofa) She wanted her new man to be comfortable in her apartment. He was. He married her.
This project was a delight to do. I took advantage of the four cornered iron bed by using a flowing shiny silver sheer. The existing paint in the room was an off white and since this was a rental, I could not even add paint. If this is your situation, take a moment to look at the white. there are a million tones of white. This was a cool white, so I went with cool tones, overall. The silver gray sheers literally “connect” the bed to the wall, architecturally. A little trick for the eye…..by tying the drapes at the top of the bed up high and the drapes at the bottom of the bed much loser, it opens up the bed visually, and this detail is what holds the bed to the wall.
