Don't be shy! Good advice for most situations, even when it comes to decorating our homes. Why not be a a little brash and bold now and then when pulling a room together? Chicago designer Anne Coyle went for the drama in a whole home project in Lincoln Park and created some memorable rooms…
1. Handpainted silk wallpaper mural from de Gournay sets the tone for drama in the dining area. A gold background and wall sized tree may not be for the decor-timid but it is a visual statement that you simply can't ignore and makes for an unforgettable space. The hide rug and black tulip chairs keep the theatricality turned up high, as does the huge framed mirror and vintage style chandelier.
2. Black walls, mirrored details and silver lacquered furniture along with tufted white leather adds a boutique hotel look to the bedroom. It's got a definite movie vibe; a contemporary update on a silver screen era boudoir.
3. A big allover paisley pattern with matching window treatments makes for a seamless statement in the family room. The wallpaper is from Cole & Son and the tapestry on the ottoman is Paul Smith. It's a non-serious look for a room that was made for relaxing, but that no one would call low-key.
