Check out this gorgeous + timeless Transformation.
My ideas started with reviewing the client's style questionnaire and notes from our consult; she wanted to add bright, joyful touches with vintage elements. In addition to the armoire, I added a comfy, charming king-size bed and nightstands. For more drama and to give the room more height, I added floor-to-ceiling blue and white draperies. A beautiful blue wool rug balances the room and adds warmth to the space. The client mentioned a seating nook, so I chose a comfy chair with a footstool to read, relax, and have a spot of tea. Lots of fun textural and colorful details bring it to life!
The client's biggest challenge was figuring out how to include the oversized armoire. I saw a place for it center stage. I chose a lovely vintage wallpaper that would pair well with the antique piece and a luxurious and feminine king bed. I decided on a comfortable chair with a table in the corner, in a fabric to coordinate with the room. She wanted a quiet and peaceful sanctuary to rest and restore. She loves vintage style, and I knew it would be essential to design that look in her room. She was drawn to traditional fabrics, cheery colors, and unexpected elements, so I chose a distinctive wallpaper. I knew right away that blue and yellow would have a place in her room and would beautifully offset her new pieces mixed with her antiques.
The room is reasonable in size with two average-sized windows. I wanted to give plenty of space for comfortably navigating around the room. The armoire was going to take center stage, so I put the large bed at an angle. I didn't want to block the view of this incredible piece. With the armoire, the client did not need additional storage. I created a seating nook in the corner with a table. The large area rug anchors the room and provides balance to the eye even though the bed is angled. Adding high draperies gave the illusion of taller ceilings and balanced the tall armoire. I added a cheery yellow checked chair for feminine french touch. I added texture and pattern to the pillows, art, and accessories to bring the whole space together.
The client wanted a fresh start in her new home, and it was important to her that her family treasures were incorporated with much-needed new pieces. The final design I presented checked off all the boxes, mixing new vintage-style pieces with heirlooms, a cozy place to relax, and a space to unwind from the world. I chose a dramatic king Louis-style bed to complement the details of the armoire. She wasn't afraid of color or pattern, so I chose a beautiful F&B paint, Lulworth blue, for the botanical wallpaper with a light blue buffalo check floor-to-ceiling drapery to add drama and more pattern to the room. The client was thrilled with the design and how I thoughtfully considered her treasured heirloom.
What a fun project for a client on her new journey! My client recently moved to a new home built in 1930 and wanted to keep the essence of the home's details in her decorating too. She speaks my language! With that in mind, I wanted to create a curated and vintage look for her space. She's always wanted a bright and cheery yet feminine bedroom. The client inherited a beautiful, oversized armoire from her grandmother, which I knew had an immediate place in the room. After our first consult, I knew that yellow and blue were her favorite colors, and she reminisced fondly about her grandmother. I knew I wanted the armoire to be the focal point! I designed a mood board to capture ideas, a floor plan with the products to scale to ensure all the items fit, a shopping list, and a 3D final concept that visualizes the final room design.
