dressing a dressing room

Recently I was offered the chance to dress a change room at a beautiful women’s fashion store in Ottawa called Shepherd’s.

Each year or so, Shepherd’s owner, Marlene Shepherd, asks different Canadian designers to transform a change room and turn it into something special. Of course each one is totally different providing lots of fun visual surprises for customers.

I decided to go for my signature blue and white palette - something graphic and fun but also classic. Papering the entire room in a bold geometric patterned wallpaper would have been too much for the eyes when trying on clothing and so we tempered one wall of pattern with three walls of crisp white textured paper that mimics the wavy pattern.

We called into service two cobistyle multi-purpose porcelain stools for handbags, jewellery, etc.

And some extra cobistyle geometric patterned white mirrors.

The blue and white ikat-patterned paper is from the Kelly Hoppen Style Collection by Graham & Brown wallpaper available through Lowes.

And the white paper is Graham & Brown Superfresco Curvy Paintable wallpaper also from Lowes.

The room was completed with a shell lighting fixture from Canfloyd (not cobistyle). I think this scheme would make for a punchy powder room, mudroom or dressing room at home too.

I called the room paper and ink for its timeless quality. It’s crisp, classic and current, all at the same time. Have a look yourself if you’re in Ottawa this year - pop into Shepherd’s and ask for Cobi’s room when you try something on!

Hi Cobi,
I was surfing the net looking for Canadian blogs and came across yours!  I’m so glad I did! It’s great! I just love all the blue-especially the wallpaper!

Cobi, once again you created a beautiful space that exudes style. I’m sure Marlene and all the customers who shop in her boutique would agree too. Cheers!
