#ProjectChris ~ Bedroom Part II

Hello Thursday! It maybe grey and wet out today but Spring is definitely in the air with a gloriously sunny and warm weekend awaits.  I love how tranquil this bedroom feels with all its patterns and colors that remind me of Spring all year round.

I shared the before and after + tips on how I created this bedroom on Monday.  Today we are looking at some key elements that really make the room.


I fell in love with this sensational fabric (Brookhaven in oyster) by Sarah Richardson for Kravet the moment I saw it and knew I had to turn it into a dynamite headboard.  The pattern is designed to run vertically but for the dimension / design of the headboard without seeing any seams + an exact pattern match all sides, I had to run it horizontally.  Susan of Fine Interior by Susan did an incredible job to make the impossible possible! The result is nothing short of spectacular.


After nailing the neutral yet graphic backdrop, I turned my attention to what I love playing with the most: pattern mix on pillows!  Sarah has made it so much easier for us to explore patterns and colors by coordinating the options into four unique collections.  The fabrics in each collection works seamlessly together or you can mix in another fabric from a different collection to jazz it up a little.

In my case, I picked Woodlawn in stone (the back of the pillow is Walmsley in linen) with Highpoint in honey as pipping.  From sketch to beautiful pillows, thanks so much to Staci of Switch Studio!


Another major change we did is to take out that closet door that opens into the bedroom.  I didn't want to lose any valuable real estate just because I had to give the door enough clearance, and I definitely didn't want the space to feel tight.  My solution? Sliding door!


I've loved the Bar Series by Lew's Hardware (available through Upper Canada Specialty Hardware) ever since I saw Jen of Made by Girl used it in her home.  So I was beyond excited to have partnered with Lewis to incorporate this very well-made and super sophisticated 14" Bar Pull as handle of my newly installed closet door.  What a stunner against the glossy grey door and shimmery grass cloth wallpaper right?  


Last but not least, sliding door needs a hanging mechanism.  I was dead set against having hardwares that "clamp" on the door and when I discover this smart solution thanks to my super skillful neighbour (all parts are available at your local Home Depot by the way), all I needed to do was to contact my dear friend Vie of Anvil Wrought Iron Furniture to fabricate a rail cap to cover the hardware.

The result is sleek, sophisticated, and totally unexpected if I may say so myself!


Hope you love this bedroom (and the rest of the condo on Style at Home) as much as I do and perhaps inspired you to try some of these elements in our own home!  Happy weekend friends!
