In The Works

I'm working with a repeat client on the interiors of a newly purchased condo at the beach. First up are the two guest rooms, which we have outfitted with pieces from Lexington's Tommy Bahama collections.

In one guest room, we picked this bed and nightstands, from the Ocean Club collection:

The tall headboard makes quite a statement, so my thought is that there won't be a need for much pattern or color. The sheeting and top of bed coverlet will likely be white. When the owner's parents visit, this will be their room, and they like yellows. So here are a few choices for fabrics:

The top image shows one fabric in it's full width. Beautiful colors and depth of pattern, but may be too much for this space, even if we used it just for a couple of shams. The lower image is a cabana stripe with cording that repeats the reds and blues in the print. I imagine using it for the drapery.

An alternate for the same room would be to go even less bold. Crisp white bedding, a solid but textural fabric for the drapes (such as the nubby deliciousness on the left) and a small geometric for pillows and banding (either of the choices on the right). I'm leaning in this directon versus the top choices.

The second guest room has the opportunity for more pattern and color. We'll do an upholstered headboard in there, paired with these nightstands and a similar dresser from Tommy Bahama's Beach House collection for Lexington:

For that room, I pulled together these three fabrics that I am absolutely in love with:

Forgive that my camera "muddied" the colors a bit. The large, crisp, print has an apple green background with pops of teal. My thought is to do the drapes for the wall of glass with this, adding some luxurious trim at the leading edge. The upholstered headboard would then be covered in the silk textured apple green, and piped with teal. The nubby plaid would be perfect for the bedskirt and pillows. I plan to band a white duvet with apple green ribbon detail and pair that with white sheets and coverlet.

Both of these rooms have light carpeting, and we plan on keeping the walls white as well--crisp and clean is the idea here! What do you think?
