I’m excited to have Susi with Design Shuffle contributing to my blog today! Design Shuffle is a fabulous go-to site to get your design groove on! There are tons of designer rooms, informative articles, how-to tips, product recommendations and so, so much more. Enjoy and thanks Susi!

Hi, I’m Susi, a writer at Design Shuffle, a fantastic social media site where design professionals and design lovers can share inspiration, showcase their projects and network. One of the best parts of my job is visiting fabulous blogs and seeing what everyone is excited about. So I’m so happy to be visiting The Design Bistro today to write about gorgeous bedrooms that are dressed to the nines. Thanks Penny for inviting me and Design Shuffle to guest blog. Hope you enjoy these fashion inspired bedroom decorating ideas!

Bedroom Design

Silvery hues and rich fabrics dress this bedroom to the nines. A mix of shiny mirrors, Lucite and gold sparkle in this sophisticated room.

Fine tailoring is all about attention to details. The monogram on the headboard, the green piping that coordinates with the curtains make this bedroom feel like a well tailored ensemble.

Like a chic outfit, this room is dressed in crisp white and black with colorful accents of green and pink. A sparkling chandelier adds a touch of bling.

Bright blooms of color and bold fabrics make for a lively décor in this feminine bedroom design. Love the vintage feeling to the pattern on the curtains and the oversized pattern on the headboard.

Camel and gray are a classic fall color combination in fashion. They also look chic in a bedroom mixed with white and darker accents.

Animal print makes a bold statement in this bedroom. The graphic pattern is balanced by the white upholstered headboard. Love the poppy red lampshades against the black and white.

Attention to details makes for a well dressed woman and room. Button tufting on the headboard offers a subtle pattern against the stronger patterns on the curtains and painting. Lovely bedroom design ideas to share or save.

With fashion, sometimes it is the unexpected accessory or accent that makes the outfit. The unexpected shaggy green pillows add texture and a spot of bold color to this chic bedroom. Images ( 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 )

Sam Monds – A Design Driven Life

I am very fortunate to work with an extremely talented free lance interior designer for many of my projects and day to day activities – Sam Monds.  In addition to executing her own projects, Sam is an invaluable partner to my design team, PCL Interiors.  Without her talent on board to navigate the myriad of tasks and responsibilities of a design firm, I am sure my days would feel endless and certainly not as fun.

Why should I be the only one putting my 2 cents in at The Bistro?  Sam has graciously agreed to regularly dine, drink, laugh and chat at The Design Bistro Blog. While her wine of choice is Merlot, her tales of interest are ALL things design related.  Yes, everyone WILL know her name!    Her blathers, postings, rants, raves,  and party of one monologues at The Bistro are merely an extension of her ramblings on her future blog, A Design Driven Life. (I will  keep you posted when it goes LIVE)

With a charming photo from her senior class portfolio show, I am tickled red pink to ROLL out the pink red carpet as her intro into the blogosphere!
