Before: Sorority Guest RoomHost Brooke Channon and the design team work together to re-create the look of a sorority themed guest room and transform it into a celestial inspired study designed by Richard Kasten.
Inspiration RoomKasten used a zodiac themed mural and celestial accessories to create this designer look.
Celestial Makeover RoomThe transformation began with enlisting a muralist to replicate the zodiac inspired mural in the inspiration room. For the window treatment, the design team opted for a red striped valance and curtains accented with velvet tie backs.
Compass Rose CeilingThe design team recreated the 18th century compass rose ceiling found in the inspiration room. A Margeaux chandelier replaced the custom designed chandelier found in the inspiration room. A brown and blue hued oriental rug was an ideal replacement for the inspiration rug.
Chinese Antique ChairsThe design team assembled the reading area using Chinese antique reproduction chairs and a three legged end table. The design team continued the zodiac theme by painting a neoclassical design on the three legged table. A carved dark wood dining table was the perfect stand in for the Italian Renaissance library desk found in the inspiration room. The desk was decorated with a celestial globe, a desk lamp, a marble sphere and a reproduction map.
Vanity StoolThe design team dressed a second hand storage unit with celestial accessories to recreate the look of the custom designed display cabinet found in the inspiration room. The design team hung four zodiac themed art prints on the wall to create interest. The room was completed with a wrought iron vanity stool painted gold and recovered with ecru velvet.
