Mirror Mirror….

Thursday, April 28, 2011 | Category: Bed and Bath

One of my clients went to Vegas last winter and came back from her trip telling me how much she love love loved the bed at the Encore hotel.  She was attracted to everything about it- from the mirrored headboard down to the mattress and fluffy white duvet cover.  Her stay was perfect timing, as we were about to start re-doing her master bedroom.  It was only a matter of days before she sent me photos of the room and info on the bed from their Home Store.

We decided to order the bed frame, mattress, box spring and bedding from the hotel, so all we had left to do was….design the entire bedroom around it!

Her walls were painted Camelback by Sherwin Williams and her floors were hand scraped hardwoods so we had a nice neutral palette to work with.  We started discussing headboard options and she sent me one that she loved from Horchow that consisted of a beige/neutral fabric; however, I just knew this color wouldn’t be right and would fade right into the Camelback walls.  I decided then and there that we needed something bold, something sexy, something dramatic!  After all, she was about to become a newlywed so her bedroom needn’t be ignored!

Nothing says sexy like TUFTING, nothing says bold like GREEN, and nothing says dramatic like MIRROR. So what did we end up with?  A custom-made tufted velvet headboard framed in beveled mirror.

The client came back from her honeymoon to this and fell head over heels (I finally saw it today and was equally as smitten!)

Although it was a tedious process designing the headboard, seeing the finished product makes me want to do it all over again.  I love the hint of sparkle that the frame gives the room and the luxe look of the tufted velvet.

Here are some mirrored bed photos to inspire you to give your room that extra touch of bling…

Oh, my! The headboard is drop dead gorgeous. My favorite color is green and velvet is my dream fabric (for sofa) so your green velvet headboard is a winning combo. I just love it.

That bed from the Encore hotel makes me feel a little sleepy. It looks so fluffy!

Have you done any other posts on the inspirational design seen in hotels in Palm Springs? Like the Ace or the Parker?

I have a whole new appreciation for mirrored headboards! I have to say the one you designed is one of my favorites!

Hi HMS- no, I haven’t YET! But could be something that MG covers in the future.

Thanks Jessie and Pretty Inspirational! It was such a fun project 🙂
