The Dreamiest Bedroom EVER.

Mark Sikes is a decorator’s decorator. I would hire him in a minute to do my own house without question and let him just go to town. I imagine we’d have a Chip-and Joanna reveal and I would cry and hug him and all would be right in the world.

Anyways, he’s a genius with impeccable taste.  Case in point, his bedroom in the Kips Bay Decorator’s Showhouse. I. AM. OBSESSED.

It’s such a good mix of super traditional styles with some touches of modern. I personally would maybe add a little more modernity to it through art and a table or two, but overall, I would happily watch all the Netflix in here.

Oh and the fabric tented entry/dressing area… STTTTAAAAHHHHHP.

There really would be no reason to leave this room for anything.  Green and blue together is just the BEST.

Here’s how to recreate this look in a bedroom of your own!

  1. Instead of papering an entire room which can be insanely costly, buy a pair of wallpaper panels and frame them in a simple gold molding and hang on either side of the bed above the nightstands.
  2. Mark Sikes’ fabric for Schumacher- this stripe is one of my personal favorites!
  3. Matouk for OKL bedding— high style and quality for less than regular Matouk.
  4. Linen drapes in a pretty blue.
  5. Brass rods (get the rings too!)
  6. Ikat X benches.
  7. A classic urn sitting atop… a modern lucite pedestal (13.)
  8. Paint the rest of the room Benjamin Moore’s Harrisburg Green.
  9. An antique headboard (reupholster in #2 fabric)
  10. Swing arm lamps with pleated shades.
  11. An antique mirror with details.
  12. A cool modern blue and white lamp.
  13. Lucite pedestal
  14. A graphic pattern rug offsets the organic chinoiserie panels.
  15. A brass small side table.
  16. A white Louis style chair done in a peacock blue velvet.
  17. An antique inspired chest with marble top.
