For Eloise Kubli, it’s the layering of finishes such as silks, velvet, shimmery glass and metal that gives a bedroom a luxurious, sensuous feeling. Her clients, who married later in life, requested a bedroom that was serene, peaceful and relaxing for their home at Plantation’s Hawks Landing. It was originally a spec home and the clients liked her work and hired her.
Kubli covered the walls and ceiling with LusterStone, a decorative architectural troweled coating from Faux Effects in light blue. When the lights are low or candles light the room, the finish shimmers. Tray ceilings have recessed lighting on a dimmer above the crown molding.
“It is a step down from Venetian Plaster and gives it the same kind of look,” Kubli says. “It has a very romantic, very sexy finish that I love to use in the bedroom and bathroom. It gives a feeling of serenity.”
The 575-square-foot bedroom has a separate seating area and a morning kitchen with microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot and sink.
The custom king-sized bed in maple features a headboard and footboard upholstered in tufted velvet. The bedding is silk and velvet in neutral tones with accent pillows in leopard print, which is echoed in the leopard throw in the seating area.
Copper leaf stools sit on top of the clients’ shag rug. Embroidered silk draperies give added texture and subtle detail with a circular pattern. The mirrored demi-lune table provides additional shimmer.
“I get a little bit of a French Art Deco feeling in this room” Kubli says. “My client grew up in Paris. I had recently come back from a continuing-education trip in France and got inspired by the trip.”
