From boring to beautiful, Stephen Saint-Onge reveals the relaxing, romantic retreat he created for the lady of the house.
So here is the completed room. It's all about the use of color, and obviously, the use of some texture on the walls, which obviously is the wallpaper that brings in a new dimension to the space. I love the way the green accent pieces that we painted and repurposed with new hardware actually play off even more against the background of the wallpaper, and I love the way that the colors complement each other. So we've taken pillowcases or shams and used those as the upholstery covers for the cushions of our furnishings, and again, the throw pillows with floral accents play off the accent pieces we have on the room obviously on the bedding and the different patterns on the bedding. I'll come in close so you can really see the pale green of our grace door headboard and the mixed fabrics; the florals, the stripes, the larger-print florals, more stripe, and obviously, the rose theme in our bedding as well. I love these bistro chairs that we repurposed into the color of the room. And look at the way they stand out against the stripe. So there it is, another project complete. I'll leave this one behind, but I think we've created a sanctuary. It's warm, inviting, relaxing at the same time, and provides a getaway for this couple.
