Style maker

I mentioned one of my favorite designers yesterday...Shelia Bridges

I love the casualness of this room and the unexpectedness of the plane suspended from the ceiling...



The boldness of the stripes and the colors of this room...



and the striking wall color paired with the simplicity of the bedding...

No hum drum designs here.

If I was shown that shade of a green and there was an idea of using it as a bedroom wall colour I would've thought it was disgusting! .. but it actually works!

Oooh, she's amazing, I love that bedspread!!

Hey Harriet said...

Oh I love her work! I'm especially taken with that bold use of the plane and that bedding is to die for!

I really like the green wall with the graphic black and white bedspread and the other pictures are just as visually inspiring

Usually I don't love bright-bright colors like that green, but it is stunning next to the bedding!

That plane is terrific, and I do indeed love the juxtaposition of the black and white Hawaiian quilt on the bed, against the green walls! I will definitely have to check out her book!

I love me some color but that third room is making my eyes hurt with the pattern clashes from the bed to the picture above it. Yikes! The stripes are amazing though, one of my favorite finishes - they are sophisticated and can be treated as formal, casual or both depending on the other items in the space. Her work is cool, thanks for sharing her!
