Gouveia used European influences accented with wrought iron details, classic paintings and dark wood antiques to create this designer look.
The transformation began by adding a warm tone (Benjamin Moore: Parchment) to the walls. The design team chose green and cream window panels to match the corset top custom draperies found in the inspiration room. A second-hand oriental rug perfectly replaced the inspiration Indian Kashan rug.
The design team touched up the headboard of a bed that was an ideal replacement for the custom made four post bed from the inspiration room. The bed was dressed with white silky shams, beaded and embroidered pillows, sea garden inspired linens.
The bed was flanked by amber colored glass candle holders, which were the perfect substitutes for the hand blown pendants in the inspiration room. Cherry wood and marble plant stands take the place of designer Coqi side tables and are topped with accessories. The design team chose a white wing chair to replicate the crewel fabric host chair from the inspiration room.
The design team remounted and added a satin finish to posters to duplicate the look of the classic paintings from the designer room. A Victorian oak desk replicated the look of the inspiration Dutch writing table and cartonnier. The design team completed the look by matching the designer chandelier with a romantic chandelier, which added the perfect glow to the room.Product Information
