Pink or Blue?

I know, what you’re thinking! Nope, we’re not talking about babies folks {and no, I don’t have any annoucements to make!}

I’m refering to the recent Master bedroom design I did for a client. My very sweet client contacted me this past fall asking for help with her Master bedroom. Her and her husband are like a lot of us, focusing on decorating the rest of the house while the master bedroom gets neglected. A shame, because as busy parents of several little ones, they totally deserve a wonderful space in which to relax at the end of the day.

So, when February hit we got the ball rolling on the design scheme {I was booked solid and that was the earliest I could squeeze it in}. During our inital meeting it was clear that my client wanted a really fresh and happy space, nice hits of colour and a brighter feel that they currently had. Classic pieces for the furniture that they wouldn’t tire of. The word Pink even got tossed around when chatting about potential colours! The colour of the year was already making its way into our designs!

After I had a good grasp of what my clients were after, I hit the fabrics showrooms hard, and fell head over heals for a pattern from Kravet called “Jellybean”. What could be happier sounding that a fabric named after an old-fashioned candy?

When I saw the pattern I was first drawn to the pink colourway {top} due to my discussions with my client about going the pink route. But then I saw the turqoise one and thought how perfectly it fit my clients. Dilemnas!

So, I set about doing somehting I don’t normally do. Two colour scheme options. Pink and Blue.

Presentation day rolled around and I was excited about {and torn between}  both schemes. At breakfast I made my kids guess which one my client would pick. Surprise, suprise, the vote was torn along {stereotypical} gender lines:


I reviewed the design schemes with my client and she was torn too, loved them both! I left everything with her {samples etc}, and later than night the family of 5 had a vote- Blue or Pink?

And the next day the answer came back….we were going blue baby!!!

Here is the scheme they picked {click to enlarge}


The design got implemented and completed a couple months ago, and my clients are so thrilled with how everything turned out. Their bedroom has gone from being a neglected space to one that they enjoy relaxing in after a busy day of work, kids, and pets!

I hope you enjoyed a little peek at this project. It certainly wasn’t the biggest project {in size or budget} that Kerrisdale Design worked on this Spring, but it was one of my favorites.  These clients are such a lovely family and it was a treat to create a space that they adore.
