On April Fool’s Day, interior designer Dahlia Mahmood received a call she thought was a mere prank from Real Housewife of Potomac, Charrisse Jackson Jordan. Charrisse requested for Dahlia to create a completely custom-made room within an unrealistic time period. The room would embody everything Charrisse loves: glamour, sophistication, and of course, champagne! It took Dahlia a moment to realize Charrisse wasn’t kidding; this Housewife wanted a lavish champagne room, and that is exactly what Dahlia would deliver.
In the midst of marriage struggles, Charrisse said it was time to make a change in her life. “All my life I have always put everyone else's needs before my own,” the Real Housewife told Bravotv.com. “The separation from my husband was a turning point in my life. I knew wholeheartedly I was not going to allow my situation define me in a negative way.” Instead, this housewife turned lemons into lemonade – or rather into champagne!
Charrisse lays out the details of her new champagne room:
“All the luxe fabrics and wallpaper are in champagne and off-white tones from the latest collection from The Romo Group. The wallpaper behind the wall unit is real Mother of Pearl from the legendary wallpaper artist collection Maya Romanoff.”
“The light fixture is custom cascading strands of pearls and Swarovski crystals to mimic champagne bubbles.”
“Dahlia and her artist created custom artwork of a champagne bottle bursting with bubbles spelling my name. I had expressed to Dahlia it has always been my dream to create a champagne line, and she wanted to create the artwork so that every time I see it, it would remind me to follow my dreams.”
“In the custom champagne cooler, I store 150 of my finest champagne bottles at 47 degrees Fahrenheit.”
So pop open a cork, Charrisse, and enjoy your glamorous new room. Check out the rest of this Potomac Palace below.
