Elle Decor Showhouse 2010 - Guestroom by Tucker & Marks

Guest Bedroom by Tucker & Marks. Twin Beds: Hand carved and turned pickled ash. Designer's own collection. Bed Linens by Scheuer Linens. Night Table by Bungalow 5. Cashmere Throws by Sandra Jorden Collection
There were so many beautiful rooms at the Elle Decor Showhouse this year. One of my very favorites was a Guest Bedroom designed by the talented Suzanne Tucker and the amazing staff at Tucker & Marks. Sunny and fresh, cozy and luxurious, this bedroom invites us to come in a stay awhile. I was thinking a permanent move might be in order.

Area Rug by Dash and Albert. "Wallpaper" is actually fabric from Suzanne Tucker Home. Pillow Fabrics by Madeline Weinrib care of ABC Home.
 There is a very touching story connected to the extraordinary beds in the room: " Michael Taylor made them for Nan Kempner in 1951 because it was between graduating from College and marrying Tommy Kempner in 1952. Nan's "step-mother" felt Suzanne should have them given her connection with Michael Taylor and that Suzanne knew Nan. So she graciously gave them to Suzanne a few months ago, right before the Elle Décor Showhouse opened."

This little bit of history makes the room all the more interesting. 

19th Century Craftsman Style Bleached White Oak Chair is from Tucker & Marks. Baluster Drinks Table is Clear Murano Glass from The Wicker Works.
Suzanne's work has always struck me as some of the most beautifully detailed in the industry. This room is no exception. I was very impressed by the attention to the smallest details, like the tiny leather welting on the bed pillows that was overlaid with a little whip-stitching. Just lovely.

Vintage Murano Galss Lamps  through DWM Maloos. Mirror by Made Goods available through Mecox Gardens. Blue Shagreen Box through John Nelson Antiques in LA.
 So here are a few more details I thought you might want to see.

When I saw the turned posts it made me think of my old four poster by
Heritage. This was just beautiful. The floors too.

Katie - I just love this!! What a wonderful room - it's so appealing on so many levels - love the combination of the beds with the chest, the colors and I especially adore the Sister Parish wallpaper - really fabulous. And the bathroom as well - I'm going to have to remember that glass mosaic floor!

Such a pretty room! And I love the glass mosiac bathroom floor! Thanks for sharing! (Was hoping to make it up to SF to see the house, but wasn't able to.)

Hi all!
I am so glad you enjoyed the room!
A quick note: I was going off some incorrect info with regards to the wallpaper in the Bedroom! My apologies! The "wallpaper" is actually a custom colorway of "Hatley" fabric from Suzanne's own fabric line made especially for the Showhouse! www.suzannetuckerhome.com.

Happy Holidays!!!

I love the contrast between the curves in the bed posts and the stripes in the rug. This room was one of the most memorable for me. Great coverage of the showhouse so far.

I loved this room too! The craftsman oak chair, mirror and fabrics were my favorites. Suzanne did a wonderful job!

So nice meeting you briefly... wishing you a wonderful holiday season.
