Okay the previous post wasn’t the last before we travel. We’re at the dining room table with an assembly line to finish my husband’s business holiday cards before we leave, and my job is faster. So during downtime, I’m gathering details for the master bedroom painting that I’ll do in the India apartment … in a few days! Woooo! After imagining it for over a year now …
Here’s the inspiration photo, found at Vogue Living:
My vision for the master bedroom was discussed here over a year ago! Surprisingly it hasn’t changed since. Another year-long inspiration is block print bedding like this from Les Indiennes which is, I believe, made with traditional block printing techniques in Southern India not too far from Chennai:
On a low platform bed similar to this (I’ve discussed bed styles for the master bedroom previously) from Kismet:
We’ll have something similar made for us with this Chinese style leg to mix with Moroccan stencils and Indian block prints. I like mixing up global style!
So now, the walls. Colors will be like the first inspiration photo above. My bluepoint Siamese cat is inspiring the colors. Yes, don’t worry your eyes aren’t going bad. You read that right. My bluepoint Siamese is gorgeous and peaceful to look at. Her colors blend wonderfully and naturally. Why not use her as inspiration?
I’ll use her darker ear and tail colors for the wall’s stencil areas, and the beige color of her body for the remainder of the walls.
This stencil is perfect to get this look. I’m so excited, I’ll do this room first.
We’ll likely use paint from Asian Paints which has dealers near the Chennai apartment’s neighborhood. Potential colors:
I’m leaning toward the colors in the right column.
Some decorative accents will be glassy blue, for the Siamese cat’s blue eyes:
Here’s where the master bedroom fits in the grand scheme of inspiration photos:
I’ll likely next blog about the paprika color alcove, because that’s another painting project I’m really excited about.
