What a spring it has been! Busy and blessed sound like the best ways to describe both home and work life right now. Our family grew by 2 in February when our twins, Billy and Lucy, were born (follow me on Instagram to see them grow), one of my favorite houses I've ever decorated graced the glossy pages of House Beautiful this month, and now PaperCity's annual Design Awards selected a master bedroom I did in Palm Beach as one of the winners in the Best Bedroom category! It's been an amazing couple of months.
This master bedroom sits on the second floor of a historic 1940's John Volk home in Palm Beach overlooking lush vegetation on two sides. The room design began with a botanical print by Manuel Canovas that was used on the curtains and bedskirt and brings the greens seen all around into this beautiful room. A pale green grasscloth was used on the walls and ceiling, a custom green and cream wool trellis patterned rug was placed on top of the wood floors for softness, and the hints of purple in the botanical print were pulled out and used on the antique Napoleon III chaise from Schorr and Dobinsky and the custom made iron bed.
This corner desk area was created for the wife to have a spot to write a note or dabble on her laptop. The desk was a vintage Dixie Highway find that was custom painted by a local artisan. The tole lamp was a whimsical vintage find, also from Dixie Highway, and its mate actually resides on my office desk here in Houston! The chair is from Celerie's collection for Henredon.
Congratulations to all of the design award winners and for a very fun first ever #TXDesignWeek here in Houston! The winners will all be published in PaperCity's October issue this fall!
