Week 5 of the One Room Challenge has now come to a close! With just one week left it was time to get a move on all the last minute details like hanging the artwork. That said this weeks post is all about just that.
Have you ever been nervous to commit to a look because you are scared of getting tired the style you chose? I can totally relate! For a while, I was into a bit of a Spanish Electic style but I’m since very over that. These days there are four styles I gravitate towards as my “Go To’s”. Two of those are featured in this post today which are Contemporary Glam and California Eclectic.
Yes, we have made it to week 4 of the One Room Challenge! This week I share with you how to elevate #Ikeadrapery panels! I was originally eyeing panels from West Elm for this project but then while in Ikea for other things I checked out their selection.
One of my FAVORITE styles to design into clearly is Contemporary Glam. Maybe because it reminds me of all my years in Fashion or because I’m secretly a Glamour Gal at heart. Whatever the case it makes me happy and my mission is to create spaces for busy creative professionals so they come home to a SANCTUARY that makes them feel INSPIRED and REENERGIZED after a stressful day at work. A HAPPY PLACE that RECHARGES them so they can take on whatever challenges come their way tomorrow.
As we head into week 3 of the One Room Challenge the plan is still to reuse and keep the budget as low as possible while still creating an elevated Airbnb experience. Last week I shared with you the overall concept and design plan. Also a source list of all the things needed to create this makeover with links to purchase if you are going through a similar process.
I had someone who follows me on Instagram reach out to me the other day. She is working on a Kitchen project and mentioned that her husband does NOT want Subway tile. Since I just recommended it for the Artisan House Kitchen I ordered samples from my favorite TileBar. I told my client there are so many options available in Subway Tile these days and don’t knock it till you see the samples.
One of the many things we updated in the Willow House Makeover was the Lighting. We didn’t originally plan to update ALL of the lightings but once we started it was a domino effect. You really can’t make a dramatic change if you try to keep lighting that is over twelve years old.
As I mentioned in a previous post I wasn’t able to attend HPMKT a few weeks again. I followed along as many of my friends and favorite designers posted what they were seeing. As a result, I discovered BOBO Intriguing Objects! Now they are a wholesale vendor so make sure you reach out if you see something you are interested in for your next project.
This is officially BLOG POST 30 which means we made it to the END of the 30 Day Challenge! This has been quite the journey and aside from maybe my last day as a Children’s Wear Designer I didn't miss a day posting.
