simply color: karen barlow


Interior designer and props stylist Karen Barlow shares this gorgeous home with her family in Manchester, England. Each room was thoughtfully designed, and I’m completely in love with the master bedroom. The color theme revolves around the vintage satin eiderdown (which, by the way, cost £1.00!). Both classy and feminine, this space invites a cozy night’s sleep. — Lauren

This is the exact color our wall is painted, and I’ve been regretting it like crazy – nice to see some inspiration! Maybe I can make it work. (Cue Tim Gunn voice here.)

Wow, great colour scheme. This is the colour I wanted my wall to be and it turned out a little more pink than I wanted. At least I get some ideas on what colours match with what I have!

I love this room. Are those separate curtain rods at the
windows? If not, where did you find them?

Cate

Absolutely loving the headboard — looking for one just
like it!! Where did you find it? Thank you! Cate

i’ve been looking for one of those ever since i saw the peach colored quilt in amelie. sadly i’ve never been able to find one quite like it. i feel like you might have better luck with european bedding lines :(

The crazy thing is that my mother has that exact same satin eiderdown quilt, bought here in California for maybe twenty bucks at a thrift shop. No one is allowed to use it except her.

Also, if anyone wants that exact color on the wall it’s Farrow & Ball’s “Pink Ground” — I remember this tour perfectly because I was obsessed at the time with getting my room that color and sad because the paint is dang pricey.
