In the Calgary Showroom this week our Merchandiser, Lindsey Chase, was challenged to choose her favourite room setting from all the fab new pieces she'd put together recently. She went straight to this luxe Rose Gold and Navy grouping. Is it wrong to describe this space as 'Girly'?
We do lots of spaces that we describe as bachelor pads that don't exlude bachelorettes. And lots of man caves in which women are certainly right at home. I like to think men are not above enjoying a space that has a more glam and feminine bent. And we're all about breaking the rules. After all our motto is...
think sexy. be rebellious. redefine modern.
In her own words, here is how Lindsey put this scintillating space together:
1) I was going for plush and playing with texture to balance and soften the strict lines of the concrete pieces from the Ghost Collection.
2) The introduction of the Rose Gold plays with the texture of the Navy Velvet on the Absinthe Set and Lynn Bench to give a feminine warmth. But my main concern was dressing the set too girly, so the concrete lamps and the AMAZING art helped to keep things plush but edgy.
3) I love a bed dressed full of pillows and when beds look so inviting and luxurious, so I went with lots of pillows to compliment the scale and grandness of the King Size Chervo Bed, and make a space that has an immediate visual impact, and allure.
While hand-me-downs have a special sentimental value, there are not a lot of things that compare to the feeling of buying YOUR first couch, chair, or dining room table.
But once the excitement calms down and you start turning over the price tags, the activity can become daunting. As a young adult, we have been raised in a very “fast” culture, but furniture shopping takes time.
