designermama's ideas for a peaceful bedroom retreat
I have been designing & decorating for well over 2 decades. For 15 yrs I did commercial interiors that were full of colour,, balance and ernergised workplaces. A tramatic event in my life made me realize that I was missing the very personal contact with real people and their homes. Now I concentrate on helping people make their design decisions easy. I help them create homes that they love. I have one rule for all my clients...They must LOVE what they put in their homes. Its good chi. At Chrisse Allan Design Associates, we help you find your true colours, personal style and help you create a customized personal decor for you to live in.

After living with stripes and florals for 27yrs, and being an avid traveller, the client was ready to make a change in her life. She wanted the warm colours she loved but she also wanted a peaceful oasis to escape to. This bedroom was remodolled where we removed an awkward wall which opened up the space, adding 20 sq feet. The duvert cover, pillows and drapes were custom designed with over 6 different fabrics & patterns in browns, blues & tans. It all works beautifully. The adjacent bathroom was also renovated as was the huge walk-in closet.

The morning coffee spot. My client's husband has been bringing her coffee every morning of their 28yr marriage. It's a very important ritual of their day and they wanted to have a special spot for it in their bedroom.
