2018 Home Health & Hospice Care Decorator Show House in Nashua, NH
Held in Nashua NH, the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts Frank E. Anderson House gets a major facelift, and proceeds from all ticket sales benefitted the Community Hospice House.
The ladies “Western Bedroom” was originally painted in a highly-saturated Sunflower Yellow with Provencal Blue as an accent. I chose three shades of gray to cool the heat all throughout, even in the Ladies Bath, and a warm Teracotta as an accent, similar to the colour of sun-kissed bricks. 1963 Wilhelm Tell poster by Armin Hofmann, my professor from Yale School of Art, on loan from International Poster of Boston. Curved chest of drawers from Ailanthus graciously followed the curve of the wall. Thanks to JG Home for her help in ordering items for this project.
Three shades of gray
Three shades of gray were also found in ceiling to floor fabulous draperies, custom-made by Carole Bruce Workroom, dramatically displayed with black wooden hardware. Christian Werner's “Anna” Bed of 2004 by Ligne Roset. Palm Trees in their textured white ceramic pots from Portugal brightened corners. Fabrics by Pindler. Mirrored bedside chest, lamp and large mirror from Studio 534. Antiques and fireplace wall sconces all by Charles Spada. Items on loan from their respective showrooms at the Boston Design Center.
A tiny bath
Tiny bath tile and walls painted gray to make the space appear larger. Darn. Our plan to update the sink and bathtub were later squashed by concerns about old plumbing.
Accents are important
Pair of French antique lamps supplied by Charles Spada Antiques. Dramatic Snakeskin Mirror supplied by Studio 534. Contemporary carpets by PRG and Landry & Arcari.
Ceiling fixture by Ironies
Truly the icing on the cake! The fabulous ceiling light fixture by Ironies was the wow factor, greatly enhancing the cool design of natural textures of similar tone and subtlety.
