The cool gray walls and warm gold accents are one of my favorite couples. They just work so well together! Don't be afraid to mix your metals either. Notice our chandelier is polished nickel. I love it when everything isn't 'matchy-matchy'.
Also note the scale of our bachelor chest nightstands. One of the most common mistakes I see in my client's homes, when I first come in to help, are nightstands and bedside lamps that aren't the correct scale. Push the limit with these pieces! You'll be surprised how much bigger your space looks when you use larger pieces.
Keep your nightstands clutter free. Dress them up. This is the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night. Use items that relax you and make you happy, like your favorite photos, flowers or simple trinkets. Simple is the key word here. A nightstand can get bogged down really quick. If you have lots of little things you love, switch them out often. They don't all have to be displayed at the same time.
Some of the pretty details...
I love distressed hardware on a smooth, refined veneer. It creates such wonderful tension.
Thank you to the Threadgill family for trusting me implicitly with your home. We've got lots more beauty to show from this stunning Dallas residence.
Isn't the beginning of a new month such an energizing time? It's a fresh start. I particularly love April. Easter and celebrating our Savior is right on the horizon. Spring temps, windows open and the greening up of everything makes me want to tackle tasks. We live in South Texas, so luckily we are already experiencing Spring, sorry Northern people :-/ I began some planting yesterday...petunias, salvia, snapdragons, dahlias. Got my herbs in too...sweet basil, flat leaf Italian parsley, cilantro, rosemary. We've got lots more to do but it's a good start.
I hope you're having a great start to the week...and the month. Happy April!

Maria, I love your taste and the work you do! I'm from New Jersey and I share your blog with all of my friends in need of inspiration for their decor dilemmas. Thanks for sharing it on your blog. I have the same fabric as the quilt over the bed in my living room. I have them as drapes. I love the wall color. Do you mind sharing the name of the paint color? I've tried so many grays-taupe colors but I love how the cool gray plays with golds. Thanks in advance! God bless.
Incagirl, thanks so much for reading and for referring my blog to your friends! That is the highest compliment! Unfortunately, I am unable to source my contracted projects. I'm sure you understand. Best of luck with your designs :-) and God bless you as well!
This is absolutely beautiful! Are you able to share what the piece at the foot of the bed is? Is it a blanket or a functional piece? Or is it just more of an accent that the owners remove at bedtime? It is such a nice complement to the white duvet. Thank you!
Devon, thank you! It is actually an unstuffed duvet that matches the king shams. We decided to use it like a quilt instead of down filling it. It is light enough that it could stay at the foot of the bed at bedtime.
wow! i'm ready to move into that bedroom! so serene.
Thanks for leaving a comment Nancy :-)
Can you share the manufacturer of those nightstands. Simply gorgeous!
Another great room! Maria, I absolutely love this space. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much Cherie :-)
