After my recent travels to Europe I couldn’t help but feel inspired to design a space in our home we had yet to update.
Here you can see what the space looked like before.
We love how the pieces from this collection come together to create a traditional farmhouse aesthetic, while perfectly balancing the vintage look you know I love with utility, modern functionality, and durability.
I truly wanted to pay tribute to the past all while celebrating the present, and so that lead me to creating a mood board inspired by a colour palette I am always swooning over when I travel.
Grey greens and blush/dusty rose tones always seem to grab my attention and I thought a small bathroom was the perfect place to play.
I started out testing samples by Farrow & Ball, it was my first time working with this paint.
What captivated me was their selection of so many wonderful shades, I can see now why so many designers are drawn to them. I landed on Card Room Green, named after the study-like rooms much favoured in the Victorian period.
Now no space is complete in my opinion without a little pattern, and I had my eye on Pierre Frey’s Fleurs De Mai wallpaper for quite some time. I toyed between different styles of wainscoting but landed on a traditional wall paneling for half the wall and had my wallpaper installer order me the beautifully patterned paper.
I kept the previous Roman blinds we had as the colouring worked well but was sure to accent with more shades of sage green to keep things monochromatic and introduced a wood framed mirror to keep things warm.
The perfect finishing touch was the hydrangea print by one of my favourite artists, Jamie Beck.
Home is more than just a place we live. It is a place to inspire us to live the life we dream and aspire to.
Thanks to DXV Canada and their truly timeless designs that elevate the experience of everyday living.
