Designer Bedroom

I am always very excited when I get the new copy of House Beautiful each month. I savor each article, slowly soaking up the text and pictures but eager to turn the page to see what's next. There is always a fun one-page article entitled "I Love My Bed" which features a photo of a well-known designer's bedroom followed by a lighthearted Q&A. This month's bedroom is New Orleans designer Tara Shaw. Known for her gorgeous reproductions of European antiques her bedroom is almost exactly what one would have expected.  Simple, white and sophisticated...even down to her bed linens. She is pictured lying on a custom designed iron canopy bed resembling her Iron Venetian Canopy Bed with Upolstered Headboard that we have here in the shop. To. Die. For. I was surprised at how modern her bed linens are which helps to make the room more transitional and not too feminine. She used Sferra's Marco Blanket Cover in Grey and their Grande Hotel sheets in White/Grey. This crisp "hotel" look has also been popular with many of our customers. Bravo House Beautiful, once again I am rejuvinated, inspired and of course,  a little envious...
