“The playroom by Donna Bonnoitt of Hatcreek & Co. makes use of reclaimed attic space. Donna added vintage shutters to create the illusion of windows. A computer work area was designed around the owners’ armoire. Fun decorative finishes, copper tiles, funky furniture, and colors with punch complete the room, making it a functional and festive work and play area.
Donna Bonnoitt of Hatcreek & Co. designed the girl’s bedroom around a beautiful French bed. Elegant, washable bedding with a vintage feel in soft, silky shades of pink, peach and gold create a dreamy, fairy table retreat. The bed crown motif is repeated in the recaptured vanity nook. The cornice and walls of the nook have been glazed in iridescent shades of gold, pink, and peach with trails of flowers.
Donna carried the theme of the bedroom into the adjoining bath. The counter is covered with iridescent glass mini-tile and the floor with golden onyx tile. A washable shower curtain softens the room. Vintage pieces such as the chandelier blend with the new, giving the room interest and finishing it off.” – © New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles
