The Coddington Design team and I have been planning, designing, and panicking over our San Francisco Decorator Showcase room since early February. With the hectic atmosphere of a major showcase, my goal was to create a calming space with a sense of relaxed beauty that would renew any guest who stopped by. As you can see from the before shots, we had our work cut out for us. From the peeling wallpaper to the creepy vines, we needed to work some magic. We started with sketches, a photo-realistic rendering, and a huge spark of creativity. We are really excited to show you our finished design so without further ado, here are the glorious full-color after shots!
One section of this large guest room, is devoted to the bedroom. This shot highlights the grey-green wall color and similar tones in the bedding. The antique commodes are 1910 Italian Rococo style in olivewood. The lightning includes mid-century ceramic lamps with gilded polka dots. We discovered both the commodes and lamps at Epoca.
The bed itself is a custom creation by Coddington Design with Hyland Mohair Velvet. This mohair bed, from Christopher Hyland and Georgina Rice, blends effortlessly in a soothing shade of Oil Green 3142. The natural wool and latex mattress is a California King (10.5”h) from McRoskey Mattress.
The Persian knotted silk and wool area rug has been quite popular! We have two holds on it as I type. We found this beautiful piece at Niba Rugs.
How does Coddington Design do traditional window treatments? In green zebra, obviously. These relaxed roman shades include blackout lining and pleated panels with reverse decorative lining. They were handsewn by the fabulous Madina Aryeh Custom Sewing and the hardware includes brass with decorative hooks.
Because everyone needs a $28k albino turtle, amiright? This 19th Century Albino Tortoise Shell with Custom Bronze Plinth is from C. Mariani Antiques and the painting by Emanuel Bernstone is from Dolby Chadwick Gallery.
This ottoman is going home with me, can you say BABYPROOF?! The custom sofa and ottoman are Coddington Design custom creations and the French celedon antique shagreen mirror is a beautiful addition from C. Mariani Antiques. We chose this playful wallpaper from Osborne & Little, the chair is a vintage 1940’s Henredon cane chair, and the wool rug is also from Niba Rugs.
We picked up a lot of fun accessories at Plantation in SF but we also love to pop into their Los Angeles store.
One of our specialties is custom designs and this scalloped nailhead detail on our custom designed loveseat added a great sense of elegance and detail to the room.
Valspar’s new paint line definitely supplied the color inspiration for the room. We used 50 shades (get it?) of grey green from Valspar’s new premium line of interior paints. Our color choices for the showroom included:
- Winter in Paris in a matte finish for the walls
- Smoke Infusion in semi-gloss for the ceiling
- Beguile in semi-gloss was the color of the trim
This year’s showcase was such an inspired and energetic event and we loved every minute! If you have any questions about our design or any of the pieces we used, we’d love to share our vision.
