"Your room is ready . . . "

Greetings one and all,

Sorry for being away for a few days - had a client arriving back from vacation and had to focus on a few projects that needed to be 'buttoned-up" before their return.  There was only one crazed moment when we had the entire master bedroom in pieces trying to fix the new, and delayed, bed . . . and found out that the flight from Europe was arriving - EARLY . . . lol.  No worries.  There's nothing like double lattes for everyone, some focus, and a couple of power drills. 

So today calls for a calm colour palette, beautiful textiles, and an elegant residence.  This lovely space is the work of perennial Tartanscot favourite - Michael S. Smith.  The project is in a private residence high above New York in the Carlyle Hotel with sweeping view of the city from every room.

Details on a lacquered chest in the guest room.

Who wouldn't want to face the new day if this wonderful room was your first sight.  My heart still flutters at the site of Arts & Crafts inspired wall coverings.  It seems to be inspired by equal parts: England, America, the history of the East coast, and the fresh palette of the West coast.

Smith always seem to be fond of giving a smallish bedroom some drama by using a canopy bed.  The simple iron bed seems to gives the guest room some needed grandeur without breaking up the space. 

Getting ready for a busy week . . . and a chance to meet Barbara Barry on Thursday.  Yay.

Sounds like you had a busy time, your photos are calming and you are so right about waking up in that gorgeous bedroom, it makes me thing of an english garden and I too love the roses in the bud vases, hope the rest of your week is a little calmer. Kathy.

Michael Smith is always about the details isn't he? The entry way is to die for.. I feel like I could move in tomorrow.
