Well, first of all THANK YOU for some many sweet comments on the “Before and After” post for our Blue Bedroom. The room turned out simple, fresh, and pretty and we’re so glad you liked it too!

I’ve gotten a few emails with questions about the room, so I wanted to do a quick post answering them. Here goes….



The original design plan called for a great taupey gray for the walls. But after looking at samples, we decided that the existing colour, Ralph Lauren Barn Owl White would work fine with the scheme and save a bit of money from our tight budget that could be better spent elsewhere. We felt the colour ended up working just fine!


The phone is from Pottery Barn. They come in black or silver and you get get one HERE.


As you know, we used Kravet’s Jellybean 1635 for the Euro shams on the bed. We backed them with a coordinating turqoise linen {great for saving a little bit of $ when using a pricier fabric}. The stripe is from Nautica for Robert Allen. It’s called Baron Stripe and the colour is Espresso. It reads more as a browney {is that a word?} charcoal though and worked well with the charcoal in the Kravet print.


We also did a couple pillows for the window seat in Robert Allen Dwell Studio “Gate” in Jade. If you are interested in ordering any of these fabrics, they can be purchased through Kerrisdale Design. Send an email to info@kerrisdaledesign.com for details.


The bedside tables, headboard, and bench are all available through Kerrisdale Design {info@kerrisdaledesign.com for pricing info}.

    You are such a nice sharer;) thank you!

  2. Thanks for the info! LOVE the striped fabric. Would LOVE to redo my headboard, maybe next house? I need to change things up in my room though. Wait… I need to finish the other rooms I started first ;)

  3. If you don’t mind my asking…what program do you use to create your decor inspiration boards? I’m trying to determine the best one to purchase…your suggestion would be much appreciated!

    Thank you ~ love your work!

    Thanks for all the great details! I’ve been hoping to DIY my own striped headboard but I’m not quite sure about how to piece together the 54″ wide fabric so the stripes can run vertical but so that the seams aren’t obvious. How did you do it?

  5. Sheryl says:

    Krista: I have the same question. And anyone else think that the Espresso is more a brown/cream combo , than the clean white/charcoal pictured?

    Don’t think I can live another month without this pillow fabric!!!!! I went to the website you referenced and I can’t seem to find where on the site I can order this fabric- can you help? It seems as though you have to be registered; is that true?
    Dying to order it!!

    Jervae- the pillow fabric is the exact same as Braemore’s Gorgeous Pearl:


    I’m not really sure how 2 different fabrics can be the exact same, but I just made pillows with the Braemore fabric and they look the same to me. I LOVE how the pillows turned out!

  15. I was wondering where you got the little silver clock by the bedside. Saw your post at House of Turquoise.

  16. flowdesigns says:

    I think that is the most gorgeous headboard I have seen.
