Battle Of The Sexes – Pick Your Look Contest – Closed
Written By: Crystal Williams
Battle of the Sexes designed by Marc Atiyolil
A sexy mix of masculine and feminine accessories were married together to form this Rock & Roll space. The soft almond wall hue (Sun and Star by Para Paints- P2061-04) is complemented by the cozy grey accents (Sophistication by Para Paints P5220-14D). Each accent in the room holds a unique style yet they all blend together into the overall look of the room. The bed’s dramatic neutral colours are softened by the curves in the frame while the pattern in the ottoman resurrects the male spirit within the design. Little pops of femininity and well traveled accents fight for the spotlight while the crystal and burnished silver fixtures disperse an equal amount of light on the entire design concept.

Q&A With The Designer
What was the inspiration behind the design of this room?
A collection of famous rock stars’ homes.
What was your favourite part of the design process?
I love accessorizing and adding the final touches. It’s those small pieces that tell a lot about the personality of the homeowners.
Why did you choose the colour schemes used for this space?
I designed the space with a neutral colour palette in mind (Sun & Star and Sophistication by Para Paints) as to have the individual pieces make statements within the overall design. With that being said, a splash of colour (No Wake Zone by Para Paints) can also be added to accentuate certain features in the room, such as the curves in the bed frame or the reflections in the mirror side tables.
What is your favourite feature in the space?
I love how many different patterns, shades and textures have come together to form a dramatic design style. It’s edgy, yet somewhere you can see yourself enjoying a good night’s sleep.
Of the “From Drab to Fab” projects showcased in the space, do you have a favourite?
We have many of our “From Drab to Fab” projects showcased within the space. Starting with the ice bucket to the mirrored dresser. They are all close to my heart. It’s like asking which child you like better, you love them all equally.

Simply changing the colour of a wall can dramatically change the look and feel of a room. Here we have the space with a soft almond wall hue (Sun and Star by Para Paints- P2061-04) in the first version and a dramatic blue (No Wake Zone by Para Paints – P5154-73) in the second version. Do you prefer the neutral almond scheme or a pop of bold, deep blue?
