Eat, Play, Sleep

This month's Traditional Home featured three beautiful rooms from three different showhomes.

I like to call it the Eat, Play, Sleep article because the areas were each from three different parts of the house.

Here we have Eat:

Looking at this room, I am speechless! (which is rare) What is there not to love about this dining room from the Boston Design Center Showhouse? Gerald Pomeroy was the genius behind this looker.

It's all drama here- but in a good way! Gleaming hand painted plum blossom wallpaper, a graphic brown and white rug reminiscent of Billy Baldwin's style, and cream accents throughout, give this room a great deal of elegance and individuality. The accessories he used in here are extraordinary- especially those obelisks! Where can I apply for a pair of those?

On to Play:

There's just so much playfulness in this little girl's bedroom designed by Victoria Neale for the D.C. Design Center Showhouse. Pink and apple green is such a cute, happy color combination, creating a room one can grow into (I'd take that mirrored chest and gourd lamp at my age!)

The dark twin beds are flea market finds. They add some much needed "heaviness" to the room, among a sea of bright colored, whimsical prints.

And you can't forget Sleep:

Everyone needs a calming, gorgeous bedroom to unwind in at the end of the day.

The white lacquered headboard is just so fabulous, I can't get over it. Apparently it was purchased from Lorin Mash (thanks to the Readers Resource in the back of T.H.) The large scale ikat pattern on the fabric wall behind the headboard gives this room tons of personality and provides a nice focal point. Crisp white accents break up all of the dark colors. This is the perfect room for a couple that doesn't want to exude too much of a feminine nor a masculine look in their bedroom. It's a nice happy, luxurious medium!

Which is your favorite room- Eat, Play, or Sleep?
