Soft Modern Bedroom by Alison Blumenfeld

Hope you had a lovely weekend. The weather in New York was gorgeous and I took full advantage, getting some longer training miles in Central Park on Saturday(the view is of Sheep’s Meadow), and painting indoors and out for Hurricane Sandy relief in Fort Tryon Park on Sunday (view of me scraping paint off of windows while wearing goggles and a safety mask).

Now, about today’s dream daily. This bedroom is an excellent example of how drapery detailing can elevate the design of a room.  In this soft monochromatic space, the wide taupe borders on the lampshades and the narrow taupe border on the soft roman shade provide modern tailoring, subtle contrast, and structure to an otherwise very relaxed and unadorned aesthetic.  The overall effect is a peaceful and serene welcome to this May Monday morning.
