Here’s what I loved about this episode and what we learned:
- tea towels from Anthropologie were used as the jumping off point for the colour scheme for both bedrooms. You can see this one made into a pillow on the bed above. Some tea towels even have a pom pom detail which would add to the cuteness factor if used for pillows.
- the mix of fabrics and pattern – I’m guessing that there are a dozen fabrics used in each room. Don’t be afraid to mix florals, geometrics and large and small prints – they don’t have to match exactly.
- the 100% wool striped broadloom which has all the colours used in both rooms
- placing the beds end to end and building the platform for under $200 was genius
- the vintage side tables,a steal at $65 for the pair, painted a robin’s egg blue with gorgeous handles from Anthropologie
- the scroll ceiling fixture (in the blue and green room) was beautiful and unique
At the end of the show, Tommy mentioned that he had an antler chandelier and herringbone wallpaper in his childhood bedroom; Sarah had a flokati rug and crochet details stapled to her bed. It’s no wonder that they both have great style and taste.
I think this was my favourite episode yet with useful advice for homeowners on how paint and fabric can transform a room. You can watch the video here and see the shopping guide here.
