In Use - Project

An elegant bedroom, Nashville USA

At only six months old, this Nashville property didn’t require much in the way of changes to the interior concept.  The designer, Concept 5ive Design Group was pretty much given a blank slate in which to enhance the home.

With clients that love to entertain and owners of two dogs, the brief for the interior design was to provide easy, low maintenance finishes and fabrics to reflect their active lifestyle.  Floor coverings and drapery selections needed to be easy clean and stain resistant.

The entire house was updated using most of the client’s existing furniture/lighting and accessories.  Existing furniture was reupholstered and a few new upholstery items were added to augment those pieces.

“We chose a darker drapery colour for this room so that at night, the room would be more cocoon-like” 

Charlie Veden, at Concept 5ive wanted to create a relaxed atmosphere that could effortlessly go from day-time pool parties to evening cocktail events.   Every room needed to flow to the next as the main living areas are very interconnected. (you can see the family/kitchen/dining rooms from front entry foyer).  
 
Colour palettes in the main areas were kept light and neutral and graduated to richer colours in the master bedroom/sitting room.  The bedroom pictured receives a great deal of natural light with a window bay opposite the bed, French doors to the right plus a beautiful oval window directly behind the bed.  
 
With the many windows in the bedroom, the designers chose to drape the walls to envelope the space and soften the various light sources.  
 
“We chose a darker drapery colour for this room so that at night, the room would be more cocoon-like” says Charlie.  There is also a wall-mounted television, (not pictured) that is hidden behind the draped walls when not in use.
 
The linen/polyester blend drapery was specified for several reasons.  The wide-width fabric at 300cm looks so much better when using this quantity as it reduces the number of seams.  It also has a very tight weave and a subtle sheen that makes it perfect for this application as silk would look too formal for this client, and linen too heavy-handed in this quantity.
 
The fabric is also reversible should the drapes ever need to be swapped over, therefore providing longevity and the superb soft aerofinish drape with its sophisticated colour palette results in a dreamy and restful space for the owners to retreat to.
