The Great Coverup in San Antonio did all the custom bed treatments, pillows, and windows for this cliient. My designs were interrupted by The Great Coverup and without a doubt made the room exactly what I had envisioned.
The headboard was custom made by what I believe to be the best in Sam Antonio. It is Vervins on Rhaspody. They do all my upholsterty work and creative work on casegoods as well.
This bedroom needed to be easy to maintain, soft and easy on the eye, an inviting place to get away from it all, and at the same time be cover shot photo ready to show off the excellent tastes of the client with guidance from the interior designer. The alcove was already there when I took over the project. So I used the space for a wall mounted tufted headboard of decorative antique brass and clear crystal insets every fourth button to keep it dressed "down" and not using all the glam, with a silver/gold wood frame to fit under the existing windows of the floor plan, All just fit so nice and compactly while giving the feeling of large and luxurious. The drapes were mounted as high was I could to go in between the two projections at the upper part of the walls. The drapery is on a center draw with a pulley mounted draw that makes it easy for the owner to open and close. The silver "butterfly" chair and ottoman for reading along with the custom chaise made the room inviting just to sit and read or watch TV. All the bed treatments were custom made with the duvet cover being the same fabric on each side so if the bed were left unmade then it would still look put together. I did not do a lot of pillows because the owner wanted it easy to throw them anywhere in the room, on any piece of furniture and they would look good. So many times these accent pillows are on different furniture and all still looks like it belongs together. As the owner repeated, beautiful, easy to make up, no pressure for pillows to be any certain place, all must be quickly made up or even left undone and still the bed looks inviting. The sheets are soft blue and high thread count, so when they are showing when the duvet is pulled back and unmade it still looks fabulous. The TV armoire was custom made to fit the TV and components and the finish matches the two night tables next to the bed. With that it is a wrap!!
