I always like to do more of the work I love, in any way, which is why I’m so glad to be a part of this blog! (Thanks Ang, wink!) As a set decorator on reality shows, I create living spaces for people I’ve never met (and never will, most likely), and it all happens really fast.
We used a mix of metallic and reflective finishes to make it feel glamorous, as well as eclectic. Since we could not get the étagère we wanted in time, one that we could get was painted copper. The pale tone-on-tone carpet/area rug combo felt elegant right away (perhaps because almost-white carpet is so high-maintenance?!) Pale grey flooring also bounces light upward; making anyone in the room look pretty and well-lit. We then used black lacquer in the furniture and custom built-ins to pull the room together.
