CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA — One of Vogue Home Interiors’ recent projects was to redesign a master bedroom in a condo overlooking the water. The room had 30-year-old wallpaper that couldn’t come down without bringing the sheetrock with it.
Owner and designer Myrna Everett’s challenge was to bring in a fresh new look that was contemporary while incorporating the blue and green floral wallpaper. She was tasked with essentially reinvent the same style treatment of sheers/drapes and canopy in a new way, and with more functionality.
Everett found a blue velvet in the exact same shade that was in the wallpaper as well as an up-to-date sheer that had lots of sparkle and shine to reflect light.
She used the blue velvet for the window canopy and the bed drapes and completely lined all of it in the sheer material.
She also built a headboard with a mirrored frame to tie in the new mirrored bedside tables.
She then updated the canopy with a smooth interior ceiling and hung a very contemporary Lucite chandelier from the center making the light bounce off the silvery white sheers and mirrored frame of the headboard. The effect provides enough light for reading and can be dimmed or switched off from a switch hidden near the headboard for easy access
The owners also wanted a TV in the room, but wanted it hidden from view. Everett designed a bed drape at the foot of the bed conceals a flat screen monitor that is visible only when you are in bed. The stand it is mounted on is a slim metal stand that is hidden between the drape and sheer so the screen appears to float discreetly at the corner of the bed.
After the bedroom was complete, the owners’ old dog bed looked even worse. “It was old and dirty we decided Molly needed a brand new bed that wouldn’t detract from the beautiful new bedroom,” Everett said. “We designed a very stylish dog bed using the same fabric we used on the bed canopy and drapes.” The curved velvet back, silver finials and white tassels tie all the elements of the room together. The blue velvet was made into a slip cover that is secured to the bottom of the bed with Velcro and can be removed for dry cleaning. The base of the bed has a cushion with outdoor foam that inhibits mold and bacteria. The cushion cover has an extra wide zipper for easy removal and is made of Sunbrella fabric, which can be thrown in the washing machine.
“The dog bed was so popular with everyone who has seen it, so in addition to being able to order a custom bed for your dog, we will be raffling one off at our Charity Event being held in our Cardiff location from 3 to 8 p.m. Oct. 14,” Everett said. “This event is open to the public the funds raised will go to the Coastal Community Foundation which in part, supports women in need. The open house event will show case a boutique shopping opportunity with jewelry, clothing and handbags and home accessories for sale.”
“What we do at Home Vogue is increase the value of our client’s homes in a way that truly enhances the quality of their life with beautiful design and quality products,” Everett said.
