How this month’s inspired room came about is quite interesting. My 10 year old son, Shelton, has shown promise of being a very talented artist. I am continually framing his work. At our holiday open house this past year, one of our guests thought Shelton’s work was Kandinsky.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, Shelton brought home this great watercolor that is what he calls bamboo. I fell in love with it and it inspired me to design a master bedroom with an Asian flair to it.
So why is all of this so interesting? Well, last December I sat down with Ryan and Nathan to plan out our on-line magazine for the year. When I sat down to work on the text for the month of April it just so happens to be that we elected to center our April focus on Asian cuisine and design. I don’t know why I still get amazed by this sort of thing – there is order and purpose to this world!
The end result is a black and white Asian inspired room with pops of red. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
