If you are a regular reader of inspired.talk, then you have seen the transformation of the Featured Designer room at Lee Jofa in New York City. Eric Cohler, Miles Redd for Oscar de la Renta, Suzanne Kasler, Lilly Pulitzer, and Robert Brown have each taken the room in his or her own direction and created an inspiring and on-brand look and feel.
The most recent designer to take on this task is up-and-comer Nick Olsen. Using fabrics from GP&J Baker and the latest Lee Jofa collection, Karenza, Olsen created an upbeat and colorful bedroom inspired by one beautiful fabric from GP&J Baker, which served as the focal point and provided the color palette for the room.
Olsen employed thoughtful trimming details to the upholstery, adding the perfect finishing touch to each piece. A mix of patterns and colors in the room is offset by a neutral sisal rug, crisp white bedding and a serene blue ceiling. A greek key inspired valance lining the ceiling adds additional interest to the GP&J Baker pink stripe upholstering the walls.
The pink, green and turquoise color scheme is further explored through the artwork and accessories. Olsen’s “more is more” aesthetic is bold and refreshing, and is the perfect antidote to an extended, dreary winter. The room will be on display through the summer, so make plans to stop by Lee Jofa at the D&D Building in New York City to check it out in person!
