One fabric inspires two bedroom designs

Free Tips on a well decorated home

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a Robert Allen trunk show that I had attended at their Boston showroom. Hands down, my favorite fabric of the day was their Bassett Hall in colorway Patina. The beautiful linen ground is decorated with an applied ribbon trellis pattern that is both unique and refined. I loved all the colors – the Linen colorway (top right) is my second favorite. But the pale blue Patina color with off white ribbon work really spoke to me – which is funny because I am generally not a pale blue person. I immediately started thinking how this fabric could be used and it just seemed it would make a fabulous bedroom fabric on the bedding and drapery treatments. Basically, I can see a whole room swathed in the soft color and gentle texture.

I hit up my Farrow & Ball color palette and found that their Skylight color is a near perfect match for a wall color: 

So, then, the next question is – what kind of bedroom would this fabric work in – formal (click the image for larger view)..?

… or more casual (click the image for larger view)?
