Here is a classic……a Neoclassic, to be more specific. And, although, usually the Baroque styles, with graceful curves are considered the most romantic, Neoclassical elements are, I believe, my favorite of all. —syle wise…
One of the elements that makes this room so romantic is that it is ALMOST monochromatic. Almost – but not quite. The velvet Bergere chairs are in a gray/taupe tone, the damask draperies are a taupe gray also. The custom bedspread is a very soft mineral green. This green is also in the Oushak rug and the one print in the room, the pillows and bench. The silver leafed finish on the chairs is reflected in the trim on the side chests and the large finials and rod on the window.
I’m afraid I will not have time to go into as much detail as I would like today, but one of the major features of the room is the backdrop. It is a large wall of upholstered squares. This room was completely guttered and rebuilt. And yes, you can see more photos of all of the areas on www.celiabarrettdesign.com .
I’ll try to write more about it later today, if I can. But I want to add one or two more bedrooms to my series. And I can’t believe it, but tomorrow is Valentine’s Day!!!
