Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep
I wish. It’s 1AM and going to bed soon just isn’t an option. It's been a rollercoaster ride of a week and I'm simply exhausted. Nothing too new for me really. I work a lot and by Friday all I want to do is crash. So while I dream of catching up on my sleep this weekend, I might as well imagine myself in one of the blissful bedrooms below. Sweet dreams!
A fresh, fun bedroom by Elizabeth Dinkel Designs. The curvilinear headboard and sexy lamp with pink shade really pop against the green and blue traditional floral wallpaper.
A subtle, romantic southern bedroom by Phoebe Howard.
It’s no secret that I think Jeffrey Bilhuber is a true genius. He can do modern, traditional, urban, country, understated or ornate. Regardless of the genre, he imbues all his interiors with inventive wit.
Sills Huniford rooms were always dramatic and original. Each space was a collection of unique, curated pieces against a backdrop of unexpected color or one-of-a-kind finishes. Case in point – this chartreuse lacquered bedroom in Bedford, NY.
Before I launched Huntley & Co., I worked for the über talented José Solìs and Paul Sherrill at Solìs Betancourt. We always had a diverse range of projects, the one above being a softer version of modern for a hip, young professional couple.
I adore Elizabeth Bailey's 2009 Hamptons Showhouse bedroom. It's that perfect kind of feminine. Sophisticated, not cutesy. And the color palette is gorgeous; the wall paint, bedhangings, linens, furniture and rug all play off of each other beautifully. But most of all, it's in a basement but you would never know. The designer incorporated several designer tricks and created a soft, warm environment that doesn't feel dark or oppressed. Nicely done Ms. Bailey! Photos c/o Habitually Chic.
I’ve always been a big fan of Kelly Wearstler’s over-the-top, confident designs. But lately they’ve become a bit kooky. I miss Hillcrest Estate! However, I do think her beach house in Malibu is absolutely brilliant. The sculptural furniture and geometric prints are totally Wearstler, but the neutral palette - an atypical choice for the designer – gives the dynamic design room to breathe.
Steven Gambrel’s website is one of those I have been frequenting lately. His rooms have a rich and dramatic authenticity about them. And I love this bedroom with the desk at the end of the bed. It almost looks like a footboard.
There are bedrooms and then there are bedrooms. This sumptuous master bedroom and guest room belong to Gela Nash-Taylor (Juicy Couture) and John Taylor (Duran Duran) and can be found on their spectacular estate in Wiltshire, England. Photos c/o vogue.com.
If I could pick a bedroom to sleep in tonight, this would be it. Stylish and warm with just enough color and a little bit of magic (pendant, mirror). West Hollywood’s EDDA is a new H&C bookmark. Tricia … zzzzzzzzzzzz
