Alvarez Morris Designs the Perfect 1970’s Bedroom for the 2010’s

Carolyn Morris, of Alvarez Morris Architectural Studio, was one of six designers featured at this year’s Defining Design event – the 4th Annual – on May 9th.  The inspiration for her design came from Celso de Lemos’s “Tea” matelass√© duvet cover, a subtle and sculptural play on words in a bold Persian blue, black and white pattern. She took the design to the extreme in both her play on color and context. The sheeting and shams, also from Celso, perfectly match the duvet cover and Euros. The coverlet, made by Alicia Adams Alpaca, in a rich cobalt blue alpaca wool topped the bed design off on the mid-century modern Wesley Allen bed. Appointed with time-period appropriate mushroom lamps, Kindel Knowledge Collection bedside tables and art and design books, her vision was portrayed to a “T”.

Then there is the “pop of color” that punctuated the bed and the design of AMD’s niche in the store. Shocking Pink! Who else but a confident and seasoned designer would do this, and it was just the touch that caused this design to soar. As owner, Olivia Louis, said, “One of the great things about inviting designers in to design their perfect bed, is that we often get to see an execution that is very different from the norm.”

Defining Design is a celebration of the designers that we have the privilege of working with and offers an opportunity for them to showcase their vision of bedroom design for our customers to see. It is the ultimate “meet and greet,” bringing together designers, clients and customers, luxury textiles and our knowledgeable staff. This was our 4th Annual Defining Design event, which includes discounted shopping, with a portion of the proceeds going to a significant Colorado charity, door prizes, hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer, and plenty of party.
