I can hardly wait to bring y’all this post—new and exciting news here in North Carolina. The Master Bedroom draperies and bed hanging were installed last week! The draperies are my favorite style—simple poles and rings.
The new bed treatment is suspended from the ceiling, David Hicks style.The whole bedroom was designed around the beautiful blue crewel fabric that Keven Hawkins found for us—all 200 yards of it … He designed the whole room around this timeless fabric and measured, measured and measured again for this beautiful installation.
The fabrication and installation were done by Tailor Made Draperies of Savannah, Georgia. The bed is lined in the ‘Sky’ ticking stripe and the tiny blue beads that were featured in an earlier post here. The ivory white and blue combination is so restful and cozy … think I will love this for a long time.
Oh, and by the way, this same treatment just appeared on the cover of the October issue of World of Interiors!
Durma com os anjos! (My editor is trying to learn Portuguese, and so she added that without my consent!) LOL!
Draperies went up in the middle of the night—long trip from Savannah
The frame to support the ‘Hicks’ style bed was built beside the bed
Side panels and back hangings
Keven Hawkins and Carlton, from Tailor Made Draperies, position the bed in place—it was bolted to the crown molding
Then the front of the bed was attached to the raised ceiling with a chain—covered of course
Antique Italian chandelier was swagged to the side
Dust ruffle was pinned in place—love the crazy mattress lifter
Tada! I may never leave this room
