When he slid into my DM, I thought it was a big prank! I was a little hesitant to respond, not until I clicked on his profile and it led me to a verified page! Then I responded…

The brief was quite brief! Our client knew what he wanted and didn’t give us a tough time in decision making! He wanted a “metallic” themed bedroom where he could just really relax after a hard days work! He wanted that luxury hotel feel but with a touch of home!

So We decided on the paint Color, Fabrics for upholstery, curtains, Rug Color & type, light fixtures, Custom art, together. We involved him every step of the way and it was quite an interesting design process!

For the wall-paint, we looked to Dulux and chose from their iron & metal collection! We decided on a really light metallic Color , that looked like a breed between cotton white and cool grey!

(Above). The detail shot of the silvery curtains & tie-back, which we used to dress the window added more to the fresh canvas, which we built our metallic theme upon! Creating a really cozy mood!

(Above) detail shot of the automated Crystal chandelier we used hung down low from the high ceilings, creating a subtle drama; in place of the usual bed side lamps! With the remote, the light fixture we installed can switch to various light moods, dimming or going off with a touch of a button!

Below, A quick look at our hand-made panelled headboard, which, by the way took over 3 hours to install… talk of bespoke! Adorned with our signature white organic cotton sheets! Styled with custom hand made Vivabella pillows.

The cushions were a mix of metallic silver textures & smooth premium velvet in aubergine with silk tassel detail! A shade of purple I have come to fall in love with!

Below, we see one part of an impeccably made bed. Our Throwpillows are beautifully arranged for both aesthetics & function. And the open Huge Christian Dior coffee table book so beautiful adorns the bespoke bed-side table.

The picture below is another detailed shot of the seating area we also designed & custom made for our client who also wanted to have a more casual seating arrangement in the comfort of his bedroom!

The custom hand painted  art piece breathes life and defines the space! Drawing inspiration from this gorgeous piece, we brought in rich jewel toned crushed silver & deep blue Throwpillows! So gentlemanly indeed!

We also added an element of interest with this egg shaped ottoman bringing in another dimension with the quilted touch on the ottoman.

And here the full view, showing how all the various shades of metallic greys come together in Balance and harmony! Re-in forcing masculinity with the rich jewel toned Colors like various shades of rich blue & aurbergine!

ALL Furniture Pieces were custom made by us with care and love, in Lagos, Nigeria (+2348033272728)

    This room is sooo what I want right Know because gray is one of my fav color,what I like more about the room is the sitting area,most people nowadays use single chairs,i like it soo much,but I feel like something is missing somewhere to make the room complete

      Thank you! What additional item would you add? We didn’t want the area cluttered as flow and functionality is highly important in a bedroom. We appreciate your feed back!
