SHOP TALK - ECLECTIC BACHELOR


We had a good time with this project.  Chesterfield sofas + kilim + a bit of Union Jack = fun, urban cool.  Here's the concept we developed which resulted in the spaces above: 
two bachelors who, though very different, share one thing in common: they both fancy themselves as rock n’ roll enthusiasts, scotch experts, and up and coming career men. Incorporating bold colors with warm woods, aged metals, and unique art and accessories, this space is a sophisticated, eclectic, rock-lovin' bachelor pad. 
And P.S., this was done using a mix of high and low.  Ikea, CB2, and other retailers mixed in with some "to the trade" items helps to elevate this project on a budget...

Michelle, you're an absolute genius! I really love the art piece above the bed with the drum sticks -- that's brilliant. Can I please bring you to NYC with me to help decorate my apt there? (Obviously I need a job and an apartment first.)

The drumsticks idea is awesome! I just love the idea of taking ordinary items, and recycling them to make something beautiful.

You have great style! Rambles with Reese
