Black and White and Cool All Over

A little Ikea goes a long way. Or make that A LOT of Ikea.
Richmond interior designer Janie Molster used this graphic, black-and-white Ikea fabric to great effect in her son’s room by repeating it for curtains, headboards and bedskirts. See, even designers shop at Ikea.

Here’s a latter version of the same room. No doubt an interior designer’s home is always in flux.
Molster is a master of mixing patterns and colors. I notice she often throws a black-and-white pattern in with other multi-colored fabrics and rugs. Below is a shot of her Swedish-cottage-meets-Southern-debutante  library that we featured in Richmond Home magazine. Although here the David Hicks fabric on the sofa is actually chocolate brown, not black (available through Lee Jofa).

And the fabulous mix of Iranian, Moroccan and Turkish tribal rugs in the dining room is totally unexpected, especially paired with the black-and-white wallpaper in the foyer.

This room has evolved, too. Now the chair seats sport fragments of the rugs. A fun, and probably comfortable, idea. Molster also runs an online shop featuring some of her favorite pieces. See more of Janie’s design work here.
