Aqua Room Inspiration

 Hi there,  Have been poking around some fabric showrooms looking for inspiration...So I thought I would share some aqua rooms...
Since its almost Christmas, I thought this would be appropriate...via the Design File.  Love the silk mohair aqua pillows and the fur rug.  

An Apartment in Palm Beach designed by none other than Meg Braff.  Love the teal and green with a splash of pink and yellow for good measure.  You cannot be in a bad mood in this room. Adore the upholstered chairs and Karl Springer (inspired) Asian coffee table.  Meg always rocks it!

Meg Braff. I am still in love with that Quadrille fabric on the sofa -- speaking of which, I love how she has a little love seat at the foot of the bed, perfect for getting dressed. Love the scalloped valanced.  
Mark Sikes. Well, a very muted aqua. Love how the Gracie  hand painted wallpaper takes center stage here (the paper is "SY-205 Caroline Street") . It is truly the star of the room. Super simple window treatments and mix of upholstered chairs with Hickory Chair Linwood arm Chair.  This is a great elegant but casual dining room.

Amanda Nisbet: Fun Chevron curtains, beautiful Spitzmiller lamps -- but my favorite is the chic benches -- both the vinyl under the window and the cool Lucite stools.  
Kendell Wilkinson Showcase house.  This was from a few years ago, but how fun.  Love the orange and teal/turquoise.  love the orange  Chinoiserie toile, Chinoiserie mirror.  I am a huge fan of the painted trim, it makes the ceilings look higher.  

Kendel Wilkinson Showcase house. Love this little dressing nook, especially the built in mirrors.  Zig zag fabric on that chair is smashing!  also great how she repeats the orange in and teal in the most delicate of ways.

Katie Ridder.  I really like how she painted the bookcases to match the walls -- so many people are afraid to venture out of the box when it comes to painting built-ins -- but what results when you dare to paint them.  

Honey Collins Interior Design What can I say, this woman has it going on.  From the painted chevron floors to the mid century waterfall table, I love how she takes her inspiration from that painting.  Nice lamps!
Honey Collins Interior Design So different from the picture above, but so gorgeous. Elegant and tasteful. Maybe its the Scalamandre fabric on the little ottomans. 
Andrea Brooks Interiors.  Love the aqua crystals on the  chandeliers and that abstract ikat on the wing chairs.  Is that a fake aqua bird in the cage on the table? Ha! Love the attention to detail. 


  1. This is almost too much beauty in one post. I just can't imagine being that talented. What do all these women do with their fabric scraps? I would be happy with those. I am pinning the entire post!

  2. Thanks for the great photo of Mark Sikes' dining room! It's Gracie hand painted wallpaper. The design is SY-205 Caroline Street. Best regards, Jennifer Gracie
