How the Beds are Made:
First a bed frame is chosen and “enhanced” by doing a faux finish, either with paint, or gold leaf, or an antiquing method, or patina, to draw out the beautiful details.
Next, inspiration is sought, and it can come from anything from a beautiful magazine spread, to a piece of china, or a shimmery swatch of fabric. Once a colour scheme is selected, the fabrics are gathered. I prefer to stick to a somewhat monochromatic colour scheme, with pops of colour here and there and an emphasis on texture. The fabrics range from the finest dupion silk, to velvet, leather, fur, or a woven texture.
Each bed is then entirely hand-dressed from the mattress up, with a teeny pleated bedskirt, and of course tons of little throw pillows! Special details such as hand-tufted and beaded coverlets, or embroidered netted canopy curtains really make each piece special J The attention to detail is amazing as each pillow is edged in the teeniest braids, lace, picot trim, ruched silk ribbon, straw, bunka, etc! And of course the signature throw blankets drape over the edge of beds, and puddle to the floor.
Each bed is then signed and dated and ready for a happy new home!
