“When you have a strong wall color like teal, incorporate some natural fabrics and textures in the space, such as bedding or a settee cushion, to help break up the color and keep things lighter.”
— Amy Carmody

IN THE DETAILS

The designer started with an Asian chinoiserie print fabric on the windows, to add a sense of history and journey to the space. All the fabrics in the room are from Calico Corners. Window treatments, headboard, and pillows: Charlotte Moss — Watercolor Collection; window woven-wood shades: Hunter Douglas; coverlet: Diamond /washed white; throws: Robert Allen; chair cushion: Hazed for Days/denim; settee cushion: Siamese/mushroom; rug (not shown): Stark Carpets, Troy; accessories: Duffey & Co., Grosse Pointe Park. Rounding out the room are a few reclaimed furniture pieces, which add character. The settee and desk chair were given new life with Calico Corners upholstery cushions and fresh paint.
 

A LAKESIDE TREASURE CHEST OF COLOR

“I wanted to create an inviting guest room with a watercolor theme by bringing the lake’s blue and green hues into the room,” says Grosse Pointe-based Calico Corners design consultant Amy Carmody, left, who designed this room for the 2016 Junior League of Detroit Designers’ Show House. The house is in Grosse Pointe Park, on Lake St. Clair. “I added many different shades of green and blue in the fabrics, furniture, and rug to complement the wall color (Sherwin-Williams, Deap Sea Dive).”
