What do you do when you’re home between trips for 48 hours? Reupholster your bed, of course! I arrived back from London to some exciting deliveries and instantly set about incorporating the new arrivals into our house. As I mentioned in my first post about our bedroom, there were two major changes I wanted to make: 1) I love blue and white but felt like the room needed more color, and 2) a simple headboard wasn’t sufficient in our master bed, given the sloped ceilings, and I wanted to create a canopy to give the bed more presence.
Deciding on the secondary color can be a process, but sometimes you find something you love and just design around it. That’s what happened with these glossy green lamps from Circa Lighting. I love green almost as much as I love blue, and when I came across Chefanie’s Dining Room on One Kings Lane, I knew I needed those green lamps on her buffet. When tracking down the source, I wasn’t surprised to discover the lamps were by Circa Lighting. Circa creates the most beautiful high-quality fixtures and collaborates with tastemakers such as Aerin, Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, and Kelly Wearstler (I could go on.) Their lights are an investment, but their fresh takes on classic designs means I’ll have them for years to come.
From there I knew I wanted a statement-making textile for the canopy that tied the lamps in with my bedding. I’ve always had a soft spot for exotic florals and landed on this beautiful Schumacher linen called Indian Arbre which is a tree-of-life pattern based off of a 1920’s palampores print from their archives, recovering the headboard and continuing the pattern up the canopy. Creating the canopy only took a couple of hours and minimal sewing, and I love how it ties the whole room together! It was so easy I’ll put together a DIY tutorial later this month.
Circa Lighting is celebrating the grand opening of their showroom in SF today and I’m excited to see more of their beautiful pieces in person! (They’re taking up residence at 175 Rhode Island Street and are celebrating at the showroom from 5-7pm today if you want to pop by!
That’s the update! I hope you love it as much as I do!
