Budget break down on an Art Decor Inspired Bedroom

 Art Deco Inspired Bedroom Suite
 When clients ask for "Classic Modern" the above is a style that comes to mind. 

To take these stylish transitional pieces from this studio photograph to a stunning real life master bedroom I would choose a warmer tone for timber or carpet flooring and use a larger rug.

Items pictured above are:
  • Stacked chest of drawers with textured fronts and loop handles.
  • Bedside cabinets with textured fronts and loop handles.
  • Queen size upholstered bed head in textured duck egg blue & sage fabric
  • Carver chair
  • Rug -which I recommend in the larger size of 243 x 305cm 
  • Solid crystal based lamps
  • Empire style Swarovski Crystal Austrian Chandelier - this piece is one of a kind in Australia.

  • Other items I would recommend to complete this setting are:

    •  This elegant bed end stool (space permitting) which would be upholstered in a luxurious feeling fabric

    • Beaded Mirror

    • Decadent bed linen 

    Queen size quilted duvet and pillow case set +
    Queen size sheets and pillow case set with silver grey embroidery.

    • A very plush queen size ensemble at the top end of commercial bedding featuring a 10 year warranty and all the creature comforts.  

    • Window furnishings - For this setting I would specify both sheer and block out curtains in a simple elegant style like this...
    Beautifully made curtains are an essential Bedroom component.
    What is the cost to decorate and furnish a main bedroom to a high standard?
