As some of you know, I am one of the designers participating in
Historic Old New Castle Showhouse that opened on September 25th.
It has been a very busy and exciting two months, planning, sourcing and installing my room.
Floor plan settled, it was time for some style inspiration. I selected this handsome fabric from Waverly featuring Pantone's 2015 color of the year, Marsala.
I've learned that it is much easier to match paint to fabric than the other way around. Benjamin Moore very generously donated all the paint for the showhouse and what a difference a coat of paint makes.
The ceiling are 12 feet high and HC 61 at 50% really helped create an enveloping feel.
Time to source the furniture and accessories.
What is a bedroom without a beautiful bed? Yves Delorme Wilmington, generously agreed to contribute their new design Swan, to the effort. It is so very lovely.
Exciting, exhausting and impossible without a lot of help.
Special thanks to Lynda who is a dynamo with an unerring eye.
And Mike, who helped install our light fixture using a remote control when we discovered there were no wall switches.
Page, cabinet maker extraordinaire, who fabricated a very tricky radiator cover.
And the big reveal
Your bedroom should be your refuge. Surround yourself with objects that speak to you. I love the work of local artists, Barbara Neville and Jacalyn Beam.

It's been a great experience and I hope you have a chance to go see the wonderful spaces created by a houseful of very talented folks.
