A paneled bedroom


Today I would like to tell you something more about the design of a bedroom I am currently working on.
One of our clients asked us for help to design and to decorate their master bedroom. They definitely wanted to see their bedroom paneled. As our company Lefèvre Interiors is known for creating paneling, custom made, according to tradition, I was very pleased to start designing this bedroom.
After having browsed a huge file of bedroom images, this image of a bedroom designed by William Heffner, was definitely the kind of bedroom my client wanted us to realize !

I had to take into account that our client absolutely wanted to see a fireplace in the bedroom.

After having discussed our sketches, we started to make the final plans of the bedroom.

The montage of the paneled room is finished.
Below you can see pictures of the paneled room finished with a base coat.

In the meantime, I prepared a proposal of the color palette to use in this bedroom.

As the master bedroom looks out over the beautiful garden, I suggested to bring in a shade of green into the room.
The niches on both sides of the fireplace are of French oak, which I wanted to be limepainted in a shade of green.
5I made a selection of Farrow & Ball paint colors for the room,
together with a selection of fabrics and furniture finishes.
Belgian linen will be used for the window treatment.

We finally have chosen for F&B Clunch to finish the paneling and F&B Breakfast Room Green to limepaint the display niches.

I do know that what you see here on this picture below doesn’t look as the chosen colors, but you have to know that it is almost impossible to reproduce the exact colors. Taking these pictures, the niche LED lights arranged in lighting strips were turned on. And using a lime paint finish on oak wood has a totally different look than using an eggshell paint finish.

The previous days I was thinking about the decoration of the bedroom and I would love to see some beautiful decorative items displayed in the niches on both sides of the mantelpiece.

Our client still has to make a lot of choices before the bedroom is totally finished. Furniture, bedding, nightstands, lighting fixtures, bedlinen,…

I would love to see the nightstands with a cream or celadon finish.
