Lauren by Ralph Lauren has partnered with four prominent interior design bloggers: Marisa Marcantonio of StyleBeat, Jennifer Boles of Peak of Chic, Eddie Ross of Eddie Ross and Michelle Adams of Lonny to style out four different rooms using selected bedding for Bloomingdale's.
The blogger-designed vignettes were photographed and will be published in a feature article for the upcoming Bloomingdale's September Home Book.
"My inspiration? A country bedroom escape in a fresh and kicky color palette. I wanted to create a space that had energy to it but was also classic," wrote Marcantonio in her blog post. "I envisioned this as a country respite for a busy city gal. She would escape here to write, as well as RSVP to dinners and cocktail parties from the cozy comfort of her bed."
"When I designed this room, I was inspired by 1920s glamour and the idea of creating a boudoir that’s also somewhat masculine," wrote Adams in her blog post. "The rich autumn colors of the bedding immediately made me think of leopard print, as the combo is timeless. The leopard introduced an element of glamour that I had fun taking to the next level by adding details such as the dripping chandelier, shagreen jewelry box, feminine artwork, and crystal barware."
"...'Bohemian' and 'eclectic' have never been used to describe me ... so I decorated the room to look as though I was preparing for a formal night out on the town, hence my use of an evening dress, jacket, opera glasses, and a flute of champagne," wrote Boles in her blog post. "I pulled in accent furniture from my home, artwork that hangs on my walls, and accessories that are usually scattered throughout my apartment. I think (or at least I hope) that the result is a refined sense of eclecticism."
The preview party will take place September 15 at Bloomingdale's where 10% of Lauren by Ralph Lauren bedding/bath sales will be donated to Housing Works. For information, click here.
