A family of snowbirds hired us to design their South Floridian getaway inspired by old Hollywood glamor. Film, repetition, reflection and symmetry are some of the common characteristics of the interiors in this particular era.
This carried through to the design of the apartment through the use of rich textiles such as velvets and silks, ornate forms, bold patterns, reflective surfaces such as glass and mirrors, and lots of bright colors with high-gloss white moldings throughout.
In this introduction you’ll see the general molding design and furniture layout of each space.The ceilings in this project get special treatment – colorful patterned wallpapers are found within the applied moldings and crown moldings throughout each room.
The elevator vestibule is the Sun Room – you arrive in a bright head-to-toe yellow space that foreshadows what is to come. The living room is left as a crisp white canvas and the doors are painted Tiffany blue for contrast. The girl’s room is painted in a warm pink and accented with white moldings on walls and a patterned glass bead wallpaper above. The boy’s room has a more subdued masculine theme with an upholstered gray suede headboard and accents of royal blue. Finally, the master suite is covered in a coral red with accents of pearl and white but it’s focal point lies in the grandiose white leather tufted headboard wall.
Can anyone give me an idea on how to get a simmilar look to the one on the wall behind the bed? - I want the wall behind my bed to look something like the wall behind that bed! Can anyone give me an idea on how to get it? Thank you. »
Wall behind the bed - I am unable to determine what is on the wall behind the head of the bed. Is it padded fabric? A paint texture? A type of metal wall covering? I have always thought sheets of, say, galvanized steel purchased like sheets of (forgive me) paneling or beadboard would make my decade. I tried it in a bathroom. I was tired of sheetrock and floor/wall molding getting wet and deteriorating. I left for work and the man who put the metal up "didn't get it" and although it is adequate it not pretty as is this wall. I love the look of metal, I think it would be easy to keep clean and I believe it would be easy to maintain against building product break down. It would also be less expensive than marble or tile ~ and do not EVER ask me to scrub dirty grout. Could a designer with access to materials and marketing consider creating a product of that nature or a simple technique to obtain this look that would be possible for a do it yourselfer with limited skills? Thank you. »
