What prompted this makeover?
Caroline’s aesthetic had evolved considerably since she last decorated her bedroom. She wanted something that felt richer, more intentional, and more sophisticated—but something that still incorporated her love of color and irreverent accents.
What is your favorite part of the design?
I love the tone-on-tone combination of the marbled fabric curtains against the sumptuous pink of the walls. The result of that pairing is that the room feels like it’s vibrating!
I wouldn’t say we compromised on anything—we knew the parameters of the space and our vision going into the project and did a great job working within those! That said, the room is quite small, so we did work to keep the decor simple and uncluttered. With all that color and pattern, we didn’t need much else to make an impact!
What was the aesthetic you were going for?
Lately, both Caroline and I are super inspired by ’70s and ’80s design, with chubby, homely furniture silhouettes and the ‘so bad it’s good’ color palettes. Our goal was to explore new possibilities within that sensibility, while also maintaining a sense of fun!
Soundtrack for getting things done: Bach in the morning, Bastille in the afternoon, Bieber at night, and Brubeck in the wee hours.
This room in three words: Sumptuous, eccentric, and unexpected.
Best part of my job: The creative problem-solving that it requires! I especially love mixing high-end and low-end to create accessible design inspiration that anyone can implement at home.
This space is inspired by: Mrs. Roper from ‘Three’s Company’, because anyone who can rock a caftan that hard deserves a bedroom designed in her honor!
Color scheme I’m currently coveting: Black and army green with a swipe of lipstick red.
If I weren’t a stylist, I’d be a therapist.
I’m 10 times more productive when I schedule my work time down to the minute, and when I schedule my downtime…and actually take it!
My lunch routine consists of big salads and conference calls.
