Design Within Reach Buckhead BedroomModern Kids, Atlanta
For this space, I wanted to create a "fantasy like" interior for a teenage girl or young lady. The design that really sets the stage is the custom art mural backdrop which by Amy Rader. She is a digital, graphic and fine artist and a genius at her craft. I wanted to do a modern day chinoiserie that was whimsical and fun, so I suggested incorporating a combination of the printed butterflies with 3 dimensional butterflies for effect. I always suggest the color palette of the room (in this case the turquoise and hot pinks), and provide her all of my fabrics & finishes to work from. I share with her exactly what pieces of furniture will be in the room, and then she creates the rest with her brilliant mind! I always have to throw in some sculptural statement furniture pieces, and in this case it is the turquoise Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen and the copper globe pendant lights for a mod look.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Choose a highlighting backdrop. If you’ve been lucky enough to discover an usual designer piece, such as the Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen, then use this as your starting point for the decorating scheme. Opt for a soft, simple backdrop that will allow the chair to shine against it, then dot similar colors around the room that will draw the emphasis back to the chair itself.
