In honor of Mother’s Day we are featuring designer Ally Coulter‘s gorgeous room from Holiday House 2011, guest written by Ms. Coulter herself!
I wanted to create a room that celebrated women and life, so the natural holiday was Mother’s Day. I created old Hollywood glamour wrapped up in soft colors, soft and plush textures, and created an ambiance suited for comfortable elegance. I wanted the mother of the home to feel elegant and cushy comfort at the same time.
I used Ralph Lauren Home because honestly no one compares to Ralph Lauren’s elegant understated and glamorous sophistication. Ralph Lauren Home just gets it right. I loved incorporating my personal antiques and memorabilia to add the touches a real mother’s salon would have. If life was a movie and the mother was entertaining with a tea or a cocktail party, there is nothing more dreamy than a room twinkling in silver crystal creme silk and cashmere. Such a refined and comfy interior. Old Hollywood glamour American style brought to life!
The most important tips for Mothers Day are 1st: unconditional love! Scented candles, a twinkling piano, pink flowers, silver, a beautiful card or poem. Honor the woman who gave you life, celebrate women and love. Love is the only thing that brings you into this world and love is the only thing you take when you leave this world. Honor the woman who gave you life! Celebrate life and love!
Happy Mother’s Day!
