Last week I met with a friend who is in the process of creating a personal retreat space in a garden room off her garage. On her third paint color choice she called me in to brainstorm colors, textures and furniture placement. She admittedly is transitioning from a gold/green saturated palette to something purer, sparser, and shall we say more greige. Although pearly grey felt a little too cool for her liking we decided on Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter for the walls along with a Modern Country/ Urban Farmhouse feel. I suggested introducing wicker, industrial metal surfaces along with chippy distressed antiques. The room receives generous sunlight with two full window walls that we decided to dress in linen roman shades like the ones in the photo above.
I can imagine the finished product perfectly! Hopefully she will allow me to come back once it is put together for a photo shoot … !!
This crisp, clean palette reminds me of my excitement for the White Issue of Gatherings Magazine due Jan. 15!
Every woman needs a room of her own. a space to retreat.
Where do you find yourself in the midst of daily chaos?
