A wonderful inviting bedroom is brought to life with Southwest inspired modern design in copper, silver and chocolate colors with highlights of aqua by Arizona interior design firm, Blue Desert Interiors. We used a classic Fornasetti wallpaper design that ties the great southwest sun and color palette with his Italian style of irreverent illustration. At Houzz.com our room was featured in an article about this great artist; Modern Icons: Piero Fornasetti. To see another view of this amazing room on our website, click here.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing clients and craftsmen. This is one of those examples. This client loves to collect Art Deco items and was looking to have this window properly dressed. We set out to create something special. I reviewed many historical references of ironwork in architeture and furniture. From that, I drew inspiration and put pencil to paper to create this wonderful design. The metalsmith took a template of the circular bay and then I met him at his shop to review the mock-up. What occurred after many months of work was this wonderful one-piece iron cornice.
