Hi, we are Hooper and Ann visiting from Birds of a Feather Design. We are so excited Erin asked us to guest blog while she is away. We are interior designers from Wilmington, NC and just finished a master bedroom that is covered in Erin’s favorite hue. Of course, we try to work in a little turquoise every chance we get, but wanted to mix it up by pairing it with emerald and gold.
The inspiration started with a Christmas candle that I got last year. I have been wanting to use this color palate ever since!
Lucky for us, we had a client who loves all shades of turquoise and was willing to give us free reign.
The custom headboard and cornices were made by a local work room. Together, they add so much height and interest to the room.
The green and white “Xu Garden” bedding is by Legacy Home and the ikat shams and bed skirt are custom.
We added in a touch of charcoal zebra (because you need a little zebra in every space) and more touches of gold in the sitting area.
The artwork is from one of our favorite local shopping spots, Crabby Chic.
The client wanted storage and a place to hide the TV and components. We chose this limed oak, World’s Away cabinet….
…and added a little bling.
The ivory silk drapes flank the windows and peek out from under the cornices.
We embellished the drapes with a green trim to add a little extra detail.
The gold chandelier is from Home Depot (yes, as in “more saving, more doing”). It’s beautiful in person.
We hope you love it as much as we do — don’t be afraid to pair an unexpected color with turquoise. As Erin has shown us, it works with everything! Happy Thanksgiving and please come and visit us over at Birds of a Feather Design. We’d love to have you!
Bye bye birdie,
Ann and Hooper
