When you’re a designer, you don’t always get to use the crazy, fun fabrics and wallpapers that come through the office. Clients, for the most part, tend to get a little nervous about making big statements or using colors outside their comfort zone (blue, blue and more blue- hahaha!) The one space my clients sometimes go bold is the powder room. But would any go THIS bold? I’ve loved this crazy Pierre Frey paper in this mustard/blue/red/pink/plum colorway for a long time, and the other day I pulled it out and thought I’d put a scheme together – another “Pretend Client” situation, if you will. We decided in the office that this client would probably be a VERY faaaaaaaancy lady with a brownstone in NYC – maybe a little preppy but sassy, in her 50’s, living alone for the first time in a long time and ready to make her space her own!
The ceiling would be painted F&B’s Cook’s Blue, with complementing hand towels and other accents. I’d break up the crazy busy paper with a large abstract, minimalist piece of art and install a modern vanity with brass legs. A little hint of raffia/rattan doesn’t hurt either…. :)
