Jewels On The Bay, Sarasota Showhouse 2013

Chuck Bolton Interior Design, to benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota
My good friend, and fellow decorator, Charles"Chuck" Bolton has created this charming and beautiful bedroom, for the 2013 Jewels On The Bay Designer Showhouse, the 18th annual such event, benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota and Manatee Counties.  I elected to post about this gorgeous, classical chamber, as I love the way Chuck used a dramatic cerulean blue wall colour (very Devil Wears Prada) and simply elegant curtains, beautifully tied, with a classic Louis Phillipe style bed...I also am very partial to having a chandelier over a bed, as he's done here.  Tailored masculine elegance!


Chuck Bolton
Chuck has a natural talent, and hails from the affluent town of Johnson City, Tennessee.  Chuck has lived in Palm Beach, Key West, and Naples- and now resides in Sarasota.  He's been associated with top firms, such as Betsey Godfrey, Godfrey Associates, and Robb and Stucky.  He has also taught interior design in Atlanta- not unlike Stan Topol, and Billy Baldwin (Parsons).  For quality, value, high taste, and a ton of fun, consult with Chuck on your current or upcoming project.  You will not be disappointed, I can promise you that!  Finally, we used to hang out at Albert Hadley's cottage, when the late, great, dear Albert had a cottage here in Naples.  Enjoy!  DF *****
