“This inviting apartment was recently purchased by a delightful empty nester who has downsized from the family home and wanted a peaceful, comfortable space with room to entertain her grandchildren and guests”, says Designer Lynne Bradley of Lynne Bradley Interiors.
The sophisticated color palette proves that pastels aren’t always “sweet”, and sets the tone for a stylish space. Lynne added glamour to the apartment with elegant furnishings, pattern and texture. A generous bespoke velvet sofa, patterned wallpaper, bamboo floors, custom joinery, new lighting and luxurious fabrics create a feminine atmosphere without feeling at all fussy.
Be sure to check out Lynne’s bio at the bottom of the feature for some great designing tips and her go-to artists and craftsmen.
“Decide on the focal point in your space, and come up with a colour and design scheme that supports that focus. This might be a fireplace, a piece of furniture, a window or door or even a TV.”
Pops of color and metallics add sophistication to the neutral backdrop.
Sleek cabinetry and a dark gray backsplash bring a touch of masculinity to the feminine design.
“One small element that can make a big impact? Layering! Combine rugs, textiles, drapes, cushions, and lighting to create a big impact by mixing patterns and textures.”
“Large mirrors, whether hung on the wall or propped on the floor, add scale and bounce light around a room.”
This guest bedroom is so welcoming and comfortable, I’m sure guests never want to leave!
At the completion of this project, Lynne received heart-felt appreciation from her client: “Thank you for transforming a very ordinary apartment I bought in haste at a difficult time, not even sure I could live there, into a stylish home I can’t wait to move to.”
We couldn’t agree more. The thoughtful design honors the client’s treasured belongings while injecting much needed personality and style.
