My mom and I are making progress on her new retail space and we have decided to go with a burgundy flocked brocade wallpaper for below the chair rail and a nice honey beige color for the walls throughout. We purchased some beautiful sheer gold drapery for the place to create a bit of contrast against the new wall color. My mother's style is different than mine but working with her has been fun. She loves romantic, gypsy, glamour, traditional, ornate. (see more of her style HERE>>)Whereas I also love that look but I like to mix in a bit of modern and cleaner lines into the mix so we are working on finding a happy medium. :)
So anywho we were talking on the phone last night about the changes and while we were chatting she is watching this old movie Gigi and tells me to turn on the Time Warner classic movie channel. So I do and she says that the interiors in the movie are very inspirational to her. If you have seen the movie you will know that the interiors are very elegant and ornate throughout with a lot of gold and traditional pieces of furniture. So for my mother I have gathered up some of my favorite french inspired glamour traditional interiors. Ooooooh lala!
I think what makes these rooms so great are the architectural elements and of course the textiles, beautifully crafted furniture and the glittery chandeliers! Wouldn't you agree?
If your curious on our design process here are some preliminary renderings I did for her to get an idea on how it all will look! So fun!
