Fabulous Room Friday 01.24.14

This week's fabulous room is a truly beautiful bedroom by one of my favorite designers, Steven Gambrel. Lately, I have been loving canopied beds, so I was immediately drawn to this room. This appears to be a custom upholstered bed paired with a custom canopy and hangings in Corelli cotton and Scalamandre trim. The canopy works with the exceptionally tall ceilings in the room while making it feel less cavernous. Aside from the bed, one of my favorite things about this bedroom is the chic contrasts found throughout. The custom black paint by Fine Paints of Europe provides a dramatic backdrop for the neutral light grey and ivory textiles throughout the space. In addition you'll notice the marble inlay on the fireplace mantle and beautiful brass, art deco-inspired Cornice Hanging Lanterns from Circa Lighting also provide chic, contrasting focal points. Overall, this bedroom feels refined and glamorous. The color palette and choice of furnishings makes it truly timeless in my book.

Are you loving canopied beds as much as I am? How do you feel about the black walls in this room? Would you ever dare to go that dark? Have a wonderful weekend!
