The room is small and we are trying to create a multi-functional, soothing and sophisticated atmosphere - a master bedroom/office. 
The tone is soft muted seaside and the color chosen is a soft seafoam green. 

We are looking for draperies in a striped silk - matte look and use a small white metal or wood rod. 
Also notice the sisal looking rug. 
I have this sea-foam colored lamp in stock (pair).  They're hand engraved tone on tone. 
We might consider the wall painted a taupe so that the headboard and the lamp show up. 


Here is a multi colored weave with texture using all the colors - it's a bit stiff so it would work well for a fabric headboard. 

How seaside!  Sandalwood stripe duvet cover.  This will bring in the taupe/tan color and the white will accent the current canvas headboard.  Casual enough for the canvas fabric. 
92 x 88"


  • Standard: 20 x 26"
  • Euro: 26" square
  • Flange: 2" wide

  • Found this wonderful Extra wide Dupioni Silk like fabric for the curtains. There is a slight cream accent because of the cross threads.  I could not find a striped silk pattern.  So how about stripes in the duvet?

    I found this fabric - $145/ yd.   Think headboard.  It will also help bring out the wicker blinds you own. 
    Actually this silk is more expensive. So it would make for a nice bed-skirt.   $185/yd
    We can make an accent pillow to match.
    The gold repeats the gold in your mirror frame. 
    I'd then like to add a bed skirt probably using the same drapery fabric - to repeat the color and to hide storage underneath the bed.  We can stay tailored for his sake -  either way is fine. 

    Sisal Looking Olefin Rug. Made in USA 
     10 x 12

    This desk is not enclosed like you were hoping.  It is built in parts.  This is my first attempt - next I will work on your original design. 
    1. 2 cabinets with doors and drawers 16" each
    2. A center keyboard attached to the desk top - total width 56" wide 
    3. total depth 22" 
    4. The 4th piece will house the computer screen.  And behind it we can attach a fabric bulletin board.
    5. The 5th piece is for storage and house your printer. We could make the top cabinet with glass doors - it will lighten the weight of the piece. 
    6. Then paint it cream tone and slightly distress it. 
    7. Total height may be higher than the 78"
    We could paint this to match the desk and add a seat cushion.  Maybe get a pattern fabric that has the tan and seafoam. 

    Under the mirror I would like to find something old and paint it in the seafoam antique.  Size needed is about 30" wide & 18" deep.  I would like to find something with carving because everything in the room is very clean.  

    I can have these white duvets made and pipe them with the aqua fabric. But I stopped because of the canvas headboard.  I didn't feel they worked together.  Canvas was too casual for the fine white - and could clash in dye lots.  I also wanted to bring in the sandalwood color somewhere.  

    Below is the wrong head board but like the simple bedspread.  Worried about the canvas head board with this look.  The pattern fabric anchors it better.  Notice the colored lamps. 

    Notice the color of the lamps below. Wrong color green but the bedspread is the same as above.  I could make this headboard - a sofa look. I think it would be more sophisticated and less country. 
    Also notice the white end tables - it mimics what you have - (except you have storage).

    Like the bedspread below with the additional stripe on the bottom and the velvet roll pillows. 

    Lovely tone on tone below.  It's in the color taupe - but would also be nice in seafoam.
    I like the use of the pleated bed skirt.  

    Remove the striped fabric to reveal the white canvas headboard. 

    Color palette again. 

    Dressers each 24 w x 18" d x 48.5" H
    pull out to 30" - place at the end of your bed. 

    current end tables 15.5" x 15.5" x 27"H

    Area for small dressing table with storage. 

    OK - now we are on the desk area where we have a problem.
    Going into the room is only 29".  Your computer screen is 27".  If something is built around the screen to encase it - that's a wall of 1" on each side.... making 29".  That's too tight a fit. 
    Your current desk I think was built inside the room.
