The making of a historic West End home into a show house
Master Suite Bedroom & Closet
Jan Robinson of Jan Robinson Interiors found her inspiration for the master suite in the view of the setting sun over the Western Promenade. “The room just glowed at sunset with the soft oranges, reds, and buttery yellow on the walls. I added in the pop of blue of the refurbished buffet piece to further complement those colors,” she says. The bedspread,
which Robinson sewed herself, is made of textured silk with pleated organza trim hand-sewn in a loose, free-form pattern.
Robinson chose the patterned valances because they were reminiscent of a Japanese painting of brightly colored birds. All fabrics are from Kravet Fabrics; all of the paint was donated by the Sherwin Williams store in Westbrook; the cork wallpaper used on the ceiling above the window seat and in the dressing room was from Thibaut Design; and the lighting came from the House of Lights in Scarborough.
