My first encounter with Verda was during the initial phone consultation for her project. She confessed that she was “addicted to the sparkly things”. She had a love/hate relationship with Z-Gallerie, and was in love with glitter. She wanted me to amplify her space to match her personality. When I met her in person I was intimidated and entertained all at the same time. Verda’s sense of humor was amazing, and her laugh was (and is) infectious.

I was greeted by her husband Marty with a simple “Hello, nice to meet you”. These two are the yin and yang of couples. While Verda is single-handedly one of the most glamorous people I have met (and she knows it!), she also insisted that Marty’s laid back, minimalist style be represented as well. Marty wanted to take a seat back and watch the process unfold; while Verda was standing over me the whole time, jar of glitter in hand.

I guess opposites really do attract!

What we did:
  • We nailed Verda’s personality in this total redo of a Hollywood Regency room. It evokes glam and glory without going kitschy. In other words, I kept the Z-Gallerie relationship to the love side of the spectrum.
  • Took their overtly beige color scheme and injected it with some feminine color (the glitter, baby!).
  • We selected and curated all of the furnishings, leaving plenty of space for Marty’s “Monsieur Zen” personality. I think my internal Feng Shui artist really came out of hiding for this room!
  • Swapped the lighting out for these brilliant starburst fixtures.
What I love:
  • The blush pink, of course. It looks good on anyone, houses included.
  • That chaise in the middle of the room. We found it online, but it looked like it was made just for Verda.
  • The touches of animal print. Somehow, this just screams “Marty” to me. Maybe I’m crazy, but I think there’s some glam rock, lurking underneath all that easy-going-ness. There has to be, for him to be in love with Verda.
  • The wallpaper. That just goes without saying.
