Designer Julie Rootes sought inspiration from natural elements for the powder room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. Jim Thompson's "Tibetan Sun" silk fabric serves as the focal wallcovering and is complemented by 24-karat gold and onyx glass mosaic tile and a Calacatta gold marble sink.
Double entry doors are upholstered with a patterned fabric. The back wall showcases an open weave bark wallcovering that leaves some of the red wall beyond exposed. The sink is repurposed chicken wire filled with a bag of river rocks with a function stainless sink hidden below the wood timbers. Water falls into the basin through the rocks, creating a nice soothing sound.
Boule chandeliers glimmer against the Phillip Jeffries wallpaper in this sleek New York dining room. Curves dominate the space, found in the lighting, the round mirror and the soft curve of the chair backs. The sheen of the fabrics and wallcovering reflect the light that enters the space through massive steel-encased windows.
For a subtle, menswear-inspired touch, Chris had the walls of his master bedroom covered in pinstripe fabric. To create custom wallcovering on a budget, the wool fabric was bought online for $4 per yard, and then the fabric was backed with acrylic in order to hang properly. Once installed, the total for the custom bedroom wall covering came to $1400.
