    Flooring in bedrooms is based on personal preference. If you go with laminate or wood, keep in mind you'll need an area rug.

    I saw a similar chandelier on the Candice Olsen lighting site…but it was a little more rounded at the bottom instead of being kind of flat in this photo. Good luck

    The Larsen fabric is Solstice-Silver, but I believe it has since been discontinued.
  • shelton143
    Hi Michael,
    I did search for the bed fabric from Larsen (Solistice-silver) and you are correct that it has been disontinued. I am unable to even find a sample to use to find a similar colour/fabrick. Are you able to suggest a similar fabric. I saw several images of this room and the fabric looks grey insome and cream in others. I would really appreciate your help as I'm in toronto but have fallen in love with tis bedroom

    The bed is upholstered in a Larsen silk. We purchased the bed linens from Designers Linen Source in Chicago.

    I know this sounds a bit crazy, but I think it would work. I found some textured paintable wallpaper online. There are horizontal papers easily found online. If you use a eggshell gray/silver paint I think you will get as close to the wallpaper covering as you can.
  • pinkyswear
    Great idea. Thanks.

    It is actually a very small scaled herringbone print in both cream and grey.

    :( Looks like this is not going to be an easy one to find. It's too bad they discontinued it.

    Looks like a 1 1/4" rod with inside mounts, so no finials. That way the beautiful drapes can go all the way to the wall. Such a restful space!

    that is correct - the rod is brushed iron finish wall to wall.

    It's important to first decide if your gray is a cool gray or warm gray. In my opinion, as long as you stay within the cool/warm realm of colors, your accent color would coordinate beautifully. For instance, in a cool gray setting, choose cool accent colors.

    Dear Mr. Abrams, this is such a lovely room! I was curious if the mirror was also on other side of the bed?

    - I was wanting a similar look in my master bedroom and wondered if it was symmetrical or different on the other side of the bed? Thank you!

      Make sure the wood is critter free before using it as a decoration or even if it will be awhile before it is burned.
