“Different levels of light are important in making a romantic bedroom, and reading lights inside the bed help those like me with failing eyesight.” The custom lampshades throughout the room are a signature of Cathy’s work. “I’ll often line them with a pale pink. It makes women prettier, men more handsome, and the room glow.”
Exquisitely intricate embroidery by Namay Samay edges bed hangings and curtains.
Cathy created an intimate seating area in front of the Chesneys mantel, layering pattern and texture with wicker chairs and inlaid furniture. “Antique textiles on pillows, the panel sewn on the ottoman, and the vintage rug give the room some history.”
“When I traveled to India several years ago, I visited the Baby Taj (I’timad-ud-Daulah) in Agra, which took my breath away. I worked with de Gournay to capture some of the details in the wallpaper.” Kathy found the botanical prints at Scott Antique Markets.
James Rudge of Michal Evans Flora & Event Design tries to use to use unique flowers that are not seen everyday, in addition to standards like roses. For this arrangement in the primary bedroom, he combined pink brillianthus, Icelandic poppies, Majestic Hot Pink bouvardia, Pink Ohara and Princes Maia garden roses, Bellalinda cream spray roses, and berried privet foliage.
