|Chloe Fall 2010 Ad Campaign|
As with most bedrooms, I started with the bedding, which in this case is menswear inspired. I would use the herringbone as the main fabric on the duvet and then add pillows in the hounds-tooth and waffle-weave diamond fabrics (Duralee). I would then upholster a classic wing-back/camel-back bed in a camel suede (William Sonoma Home) and dress any windows in tan linen drapes (Pottery Barn). The Chloe snakeskin bag I would interpret as a tone-on-tone cowhide (William Sonoma Home), for a little ruggedness and interest.
The real interest, though, lies in the hard surfaces. The creme de la creme? The vintage 1970's nightstands made with polished brass sheeting and finished with copper nailheads (1st Dibs). Raarrrr.... Nothing beige about these babies. To contrast against the high gloss finish, I would add a French key cabinet in a light lime finish (Global Views) at the foot of the bed and accessorize it exactly how they did in this image. Why change perfection? Add a gorgeous quatrefoil chandelier from Arteriors for a little more glam, and the room is complete!
So what do you think? Stale and vanilla or serene and sophisticated?
