The chandelier is an antique Queen Anne. Draperies are made with copper colored silk, and the ceiling is covered with a copper faux finish to coordinate. A pair of antique Staffordshire dogs perch atop a pair of gold sconces, surrounded by the clients collection of Staffordshire leaf plates.
The tiny space allotted for the powder room was a challenge for the designer. Derrick designed this custom cabinet to house a necessity every bathroom needs. Drama was achieved with a gold toned wallpaper, and a Terra Cotta colored ceiling with gold accents on the heavy crown molding. The chandelier is an antique Art Nouveau.
The antique Persian rug became the focus of this room, so Derrick and the client wanted neutral furnishings, with colored accents only in the art and custom pillows. Like the living room, you have a view of the beautiful atrium garden and patio. The tile columns add architectural interest to otherwise simple walls. Custom roman shades allow for easy light control for TV viewing.
This master bedroom immediately invites you in to rest, read, write a letter, or do needlework as this client does often.
