English Bedroom

Posted on | April 29, 2010 | 12 Comments

Totally in love with this bedroom. Love all the plaids, green tinted walls and wing chair in the corner. I’m on the search for a light gray wool plaid in red or variegated purples and reds. Thinking it will be amazing in my green den?

    isn’t that simply a gorgeous room.

    The headboard fabric is Colefax & Fowler Lanark Plaid, check out that colour range, they may have something that could work. The U.S supplier is Cowtan & Tout.

    Good luck, v exciting!

    Thanks Vanya for the tip. I think Colfax has total potential for chair fabric.

    Liane,

    I will have a fireplace in one of my bedrooms. Right now it’s a dining room but someday I hope it will be a kids’ room. We have 3 fireplaces total and one we think could be behind a wall in the someday kitchen.

    Very pretty. In fact, am planning something similar for our bedroom. Any idea where they might have gotten this green paint color?

    Mopar,

    It’s really hard to tell what color green it is. In the right corner it’s much darker then above the mantel. Could be two different colors or lighting.

    The perfect pale green paint is so elusive. :)
