I’m not sure if you remember, but a couple of years ago I decorated my friend Meredith’s apartment in New York. I’m not a designer, but Meredith and Daniel somehow trusted me to put together the rooms in their beautiful condo in a high rise building on the Upper East Side. Meredith and I had a great time choosing wallpaper and furniture that summer, and we did it all remotely, me on the Cape and her in New York and Connecticut.
Although I posted some mock up designs, I don’t think I ever revealed the finished rooms. Here is the post with the inspiration and plan for the master bedroom: Scheming: Meredith & Daniel’s Master Bedroom, and below, a detail photo of the finished room, picturing the upholstered headboard with nailhead detailing against that the fabulous arc-patterned wallpaper, and glass-topped white nightstand with cerulean blue glazed ceramic table lamp by Robert Abbey.
The bedroom had been on my mind after yesterday’s post about the current lighting trend of using low hanging pendant lights by the bedside in place of table lamps. I know I said I prefer a sconce, but I certainly recognize the decorative value of a beautiful table lamp, especially in a classic bedside vignette such as this one. I particularly like this table lamp by Robert Abbey for its simple, slightly tapered silhouette, subtle detailing, crisp color, and plain white lampshade. Plus, it’s available in many colors.
