I loved this green bedroom I spotted in the recent issue of Rue magazine. What a colour! It’s the bedroom of Valorie Hart, author of the Visual Vamp blog which I highly recommend. On her blog, she graciously shares how she decorated the room – so many interior designers keep their how-to secrets very close to their chests so it’s refreshing to see a talented designer spill the beans. I hope she doesn’t mind me re-posting it here.
Great room, no? Upholstered green linen walls! Yowsers.
From the Visual Vamp:
“I upholstered it in green linen (from fabric.com - they are out of what I use, but I gave you the link for something similar). I purposefully chose black trim on the hotel bedding (from an eBay store), with the oversize black monograms in a font called Tango (done by Uptown Embroidery).
I used extra green linen to make a bed skirt. The upholstered headboard and slip covered bench are done in Schumacher Nanjing in Jade Green. The headboard is very affordable from Country Door. I had the double piping removed by the Leonels the upholsterer, The chevron Missoni style rugs come from a big box store, and I put two together to make a larger rug,
The lamps are vintage that I painted to look like alabaster, and the oversize shades came from Lowes.
The nightstands were a close out that I got about six years ago, and have been painted a couple of time.
The color is Benjamin Moore Kelly Green.
The flower ball chandelier is discontinued, but it came from perch. and I am sure they could find you something similar.
