Maggie Griffin of Maggie Griffin Design recently finished a complete design overhaul of the master bedroom for one of her clients. Her challenges were to make it comfortable and soft, but also very modern. A true daydream!
Tell us about your project. Where did you find inspiration?
This project was a pure pleasure to work on! The client and I just “click.” She is definitive on her goals, but lets me be creative too—we are a great fit! She chose this gorgeous Dogwood Bed and nightstands, and we used the always classic Churchill Chair as a reading spot in the corner. We wanted to keep the room soft and ethereal, as this is the master bedroom. The touches of gold are a fun modern pop, and the all-white bedding is super inviting!
Why did you choose Universal for this project?
I love the classic pieces that Universal has to offer. There are fun pieces for my clients to incorporate into their homes whether they’re traditional, modern, or a mix of both.
What is your favorite part of the project?
I love the scale of this room! The height allowed for a fabulous chandelier, and the large windows are flanked with a gorgeous crewel fabric. The artwork plays up the verticality of the space well.
How do you stay up to date with current trends, technology and codes?
Design magazines, shelter blogs, and interiors books keep me invigorated and inspired! As does Instagram and Pinterest!
Favorite designer or architect?
My favorite designer is Mark Sikes. His style is comfortable with a touch of formality. And I may be partial, but I love everything James Farmer does.
What do you see as design trends in the marketplace for projects you’re working on in the next 12 months?
I see clean lines and fresh takes on classic fabric patterns making their way into my projects. I love using a classic pattern with a new color way!
What is your interior design philosophy, and how does it apply to successfully meeting your clients’ design needs?
My style is very much a mix, nothing too fussy, or too “new.” Nothing makes me happier than an antique chest with a piece of modern art over it and a pair of great lamps! My clients know how much I love mixing patterns and using classics
like blue and white in traditional spaces.
