Current Project: Transforming a Neutral Master Bedroom into a Grey and White Retreat


A successful entrepreneur and mother of two came to us looking to tranform her master bedroom.  After a long day at the office, both her and her husband wanted a place to unwind and relax.  Before the neutral cafe walls and dark brown window treatments represented a “blah” feeling to our clients.  After being inspired by an upscale hotel in New York City for business, our client envisionized a grey and white color scheme, so Ashley ran with the color scheme transforming the master bedroom into the room our client has always dreamed of.



Ashley selected crisp white furniture which included a new chest and vanity from Hickory Chair.  The existing white upholstered bed and nightstands still go well with the design.  We added a wonderful grey and white faux pony skin bench from Lazy Susan for her vanity and a fun zebra bench at the end of the bed from OLY Studio“I love adding a touch of black in the room and the zebra bench is perfect!” says Ashley.



Every bedroom needs a floor length mirror! The one below is upholstered in a cream color with silver accents from Hickory Chair.  This floor mirror is a wonderful addition to any room because it adds style and texture!  The round silver mirror from Global Views is a statement on its own.  It is so Hollywood and fits just right above the chest. 




The finishing touches include the white, grey, and silver, accessories and the oh so fun pillows. 


Most folks want to throw all the same pillows on the bed, but change it up and try three different pillows. In this room, it really makes your eye gravitate towards the cozy bed. 


Is your master bedroom not doing it for you, it feels tired and just “blah” consider calling us. You deserve a peaceful retreat after a long day at the office.

I adore OLY Studio.

This postcard from OLY Studio came in the mail today with the rest of the High Point Fall Furniture Market teasers. They are really piling in now, we keep them in a beautiful porcelain container on the transaction counter near Laurie’s desk and peek at them during lunch (see photo below) The styling of the postcard caught my eye, but let’s be honest, so does anything from OLY. Their collections are eclectic & clean, with some pieces looking very Hollywood Regency and others looking rustic and earthy with hand hewn qualities.
For instance:
I just specified the Elisabeth Buffet for a client’s Dining Room. I love the details on this piece.

The pieces below will be at our first ever sale- The Pear Square Event the first week in November. (You can call the studio if you’re interested in them, now though)

The Christine Cocktail Table would look so great with piles of big books underneath it.

A pair of Bella sonces could break up a photo arrangement in a gallery hallway.

This,albeit, huge, is the. perfect. mirror.

I would hang it on a wall in my bedroom & tape just a few b & w photos on it a la The Diving Bell & The Butterfly (which I also love) to make it a little less stuffy.
