MAUMEE, OHIO – Creating a tranquil bedroom setting takes more than just soft pillows and cozy comforters. As homeowner Phoebe Taylor found out, a bedroom can be turned into a personal retreat when decorative Fypon products are used to enhance the walls and ceiling.
“I was ready for a major change and I wanted mouldings with faux finishes to get me there,” says Taylor, an Atlanta homeowner and part-time interior designer. “I knew I could make magic happen with the Fypon pieces and some bold color choices.”
Taylor chose to hand paint a Florentine Miterless Crown Moulding System with a blend of six layers of colors, including black, metallic gold, olive green, brown, taupe and harmony gold. She used the same color accents on a Lexington Ceiling Medallion that accents a light fixture and ceiling fan.
“The blends of golden hues with the contrasting black tones set the stage for elegance in this bedroom,” says Taylor. “From the top down, this room now serves as my haven at the end of the day … and Fypon products helped me get there.”
Projects for the Bedroom
To create your own dream bedroom, Fypon experts recommend these do-it-yourself projects:
Project 1 – Add a large sunburst window pediment above a bed to serve as a decorative headboard.
Project 2 – Install a two-piece Fypon ceiling medallion around the top of a light fixture or ceiling fan. The interlocking pieces fit snuggly together so you don’t have to take down the fixture or mess with electrical systems.
Project 3 – Top off the interiors of windows in the bedroom with a pediment above a window surround. Be bold and add a rams head, sunburst, peaked cap or acorn pediment to draw attention to the windows.
Project 4 – Create a unique window treatment by securely installing a pair of urethane brackets on either side of a window. Insert a dowel rod through the bracket openings and drape with lightweight fabric for a fast and easy decorative window treatment.
Project 5 – Make the transition from the master bedroom to the bathroom an elegant experience by surrounding the door with pilasters and a crosshead with a keystone accent piece to draw attention to the doorway.
Fypon pieces come pre-primed and ready for installation. All products need to be glued and nailed or screwed to the surface, then painted to your preference. To locate the closest Fypon dealer to you and learn more about Fypon products, visit http://www.fypon.com/dealerlocator/.
