BUILDING A BEAUTIFUL BED WITH PEACOCK ALLEY

Catherine M. Austin Interior Design/ Glenview Master Bedroom

Peacock Alley has always been a favorite resource when designing bedrooms for my clients. The quality of the products along with the versatility of design options is extraordinary. Founder Mary Ella Gabler created a collection that appeals to clients looking to dress their bedroom in the same way they dressed themselves: in natural fibers, classic silhouettes and pleasing colors. Since 1973, Peacock Alley has been an ode to the founder’s sense of personal classic style.

I was delightful to put together a few schemes that reflect various styles for any personality. Whether you are creating a master bedroom as a serene haven, a lively children’s room, or an inviting guest bedroom, Peacock Alley has choices for any style.

THE BASICS

Peacock Alley’s matelassé coverlets are a versatile foundation for creating any bedroom scheme. My clients adore them for their durability, wash ability, and that they can be incorporated with other fabrics to create a bespoke room. I often use a coverlet and shams as the starting point for the bed and then use a mix of patterned fabric for the Euro Shams, accent pillows, bed skirt and upholstered headboard. No bed is complete without the PERFECT Peacock Alley All Seasons Blanket. It is the perfect weight and I have never designed a bed without one!
