bedroom inspiration

Emily Oster

A couple of weeks ago, I did a post about how much I enjoy spindle beds and have since been dreaming of how I would use one as the focal piece in our master bedroom. For me, the Gwendoline Spindle Bed by Bradshaw Kirchofer is the bed that is the most visually appealing. Its proportions are spot on and the detail work is incredible. I further fell in love with the bed when I learned a bit more about its makers. Bradshaw Kirchofer is a small, handmade furniture company based out of Los Angeles.  It was started in 1994 by a couple who had and continue to have a deep appreciation for furniture inspired by their British heritage. Their furniture is created by a team of skilled craftsmen who hand finish each solid pine wood piece. The furniture is available in 21 different finishes ( 4 stained and 17 painted) with an option to completely customize your own item. Additionally, the company offers ready to ship pieces that are available for delivery within roughly 2 weeks of the order being placed (custom, made to order takes approximately 4-6 weeks to complete). Personally, I most drawn to their stain options but could see how doing a colored finish could be equally amazing (like their new St. Andrews Daybed in Heritage Blue).

For our inspired master bedroom plan, I am torn on finish selection as I really like the look of the black walnut, limed pine and english pine stains. If or shall I say hopefully when I order our bed, I would definitely need to see wood samples (which Bradshaw very conveniently makes available for you here). However, for the sake of this design exercise I selected the english pine stain which is their ready to ship finish and looks pretty amazing with the brass accents. Since the bed is more rustic and I like to mix styles, I went more modern with the other elements in the room. I used matching mid century inspired dressers from Chelsea Textiles Ltd (featured in this furniture design post), brass accents in the drapery rod and lighting, a fun take on a traditional pattern for the curtains designed by Sarah Richardson for Kravet, art from photographer Kevin Russ (recently written about here), chunky knit throws from West Elm, pillows made from Kelly Weartsler's new line for Groundworks and would complete the look with adding gray grasscloth on the walls. Now only if I could make this plan a reality....
