I can’t recall how I came across a photo of this room, deliciously finished by Nena’s Creative Finishes in Houston, Texas . I wish that room was in my house. I LOVE the palette – some might think its drab, but I could live in a house with browns and taupes and creams. Accented with lovely bronzed metallic and crystal fixtures –
I like this next one because even though its one of these grand two-story rooms, it feels romantic, and warm, and grounded. I hate our two-story great room. I didn’t like the one in our last house either (so why did I do it again?). I’d like my room so much more if the ceiling dropped about four feet, or if it had a ceiling like this –
Brick in the bedroom is so romantic, don’t you think?
I have no clue where I grabbed this next photo from. Anyone recognize the work? Please let me know, so I can give credit where credit is due. The camera shot feels distorted a bit, but look closely…. a lot of stone- floor, walls leading in, and in the powder bath… the counter, sink…. but the decorative paint/plaster finishes on the walls softens all that cold stone. Try to envision those walls with just paint – I don’t think you’d get the same effect-
This next one isn’t a full room shot – only have a closer up – but had to share it. Artist Finisher Audra Lynch Nanay, owner of Three Trees Design Studio in Schererville, IN (219-865-1073)- created this finish by hand! She troweled an Italian lime plaster on the walls and then randomly sculpted the flowers too – they are a porcelain type. Was installed in a master bedroom and bath vanity area-
I like a lot of things about this room. I like how they finished the walls in a subtle stripe, the ceiling remaining the lighter color. What I like most is the trim that draws a distinct line between the two. The chandelier is perfect…. I love wood floors in bedrooms, though all ours carpeted. And I like the color palette – soft pinks, celadon, cream and white (my hubby wouldn’t like this) –
Ahhhhh…. look at that view. Could you imagine? There’s that wood beamed ceiling I love…. Nice soft neutral plaster on the walls – perfect backdrop for the rest – the dark woodwork, lovely window treatments, and so fine are those chairs. Described as ‘soft green gilded wood chairs from Portugal’ –
Does this grab your attention? It did mine. All of it works perfectly together. I’m surprised I’m okey with the pairing of so many items – but I think it was with purpose here. Like that painting , and LOVE those chairs!
Check this unique fireplace out, its made out of coral –
Very interesting looking. I think I’d pass on the drapes, though –
What’d you think? Did they grab your attention, or just eh?
