Dissecting the Details: Phoebe Howard

Hello lovely LDV readers, Nancy of Marcus Design here to share another installment of the Dissecting the Details column with you today! I’m always drawn to very classic design in the bedroom, and Phoebe Howard knows exactly how to create a timeless and effortlessly chic bedroom space. Let’s take a closer peek into four key elements that Phoebe uses to accomplish this look:

SOFT BLUES

Whether its an obvious all-over hue or an ever so subtle touch of pillows and lamps, the overall look is as soothing as the sea itself. I think blue has to be my all-time favorite color for the bedroom, so it’s definitely something I am drawn to in Phoebe’s designs.

A FEW ANTIQUES

The above examples show antique or antique style furniture, lighting, and artwork throughout. The warm wood hues of the antique desks, spindle beds, and dressers add so much to these overall light and airy spaces. The mirrors and artwork framed in substantial antique gold frames are stand-outs in each space.

SUMPTUOUS SEATING AREAS

Every space featured has a seating area, no matter how large or small the room. Even in the smallest of bedroom, I think one occassional or slipper chair brings so much comfort and charm to the bedroom.

THE CLASSIC CANOPY
 

One of my all-time favorites, the canopy bed could not be more perfectly suited to Phoebe’s spaces. The old-world charm and luxury can’t be beat. Truthfully I think these beds can make the ceiling appear higher and the space seem larger. And fabric always serves to warm a space!

Which of the four features is your favorite? Would you implement these in your own bedroom space? To see more from Phoebe’s stunning and extensive portfolio hop here.
