Dreaming – Luxury Sheets and Tile…My Dream Team.

How amazing would it be to sleep in these D.Porthault sheets? They’re total luxury at about 2K per set!  Since this is my day to dream, I thought I would indulge and pick out the style I would dress my bed with. It’s hard to choose, but my favourite is the understated elegance of the Jour de Paris set. The crisp cotton percale with hemstitching detail in white is the perfect backdrop for the ultimate Paris hotel experience. Continuing with the theme of chic Parisian hotel, I fell in love with these Anne Sacks tiles a while ago and have been dreaming about them since. Maybe not what you would traditionally see in a Paris hotel, but I love the artisanal design and watery colour of this particular tile. It’s my version of Parisian chic. I would compliment these tiles with soft white marble floors, polished nickel faucets, vintage light fixtures and white fluffy towels. Jours de ParisAnne Sacks Tile

Paris Progress

I’m working on a small bedroom and bathroom refresh for a friend of mine who lives in Paris, Ontario. She owns a successful advertising and PR business called Flying Camel (yes, the name has a story…you can read about it here: Flying Camel). She’s waiting to move into her dream home where she’ll invest in her decorating; but for now, we are sticking to a modest budget. I’m all for a five year plan!

She’s looking for an eclectic, but edited style that reflects her easy-going personality. She travels the world for business and when she’s home wants a serene place to sleep and get ready for the day. We chose a neutral, patterned wallpaper for the wall behind her bed to create interest and a luxurious, upholstered bed for comfort. The mirrors behind the bedside tables are to create symmetry and reflect the light of the lamps in the naturally dark room.

Here’s the initial concept we came up with for her bedroom. I think we’re off to great start!
