My Turn

Designers are definitely the cobbler’s kids.  We beautify the world but when it comes to our own spaces there is not much left in the creative savings account.  This year I hired myself to makeover a few rooms.

I started with the dining room. I have to come clean, we NEVER use this space.  I designed a curvy custom booth in metallic blue green leather and nail head detailing to give it a trendy restaurant appeal.  The walls were painted aqua and then given a bronze metallic glaze for depth.  I stamped the walls and added some bling for effect. I love how it turned out and we have actually starting using it more.

 Our formal living room has become a library/music room.  At any given time there is someone reading on the couch while another is trying to form the new Jonas Brothers.  Amps and guitars usually fill the space.  I wanted this room to have a whimsical feel while also giving a nod to the library aspect.  I went with a tree and poem wall that I think rocks the space.  This Robert Frost poem has always been a favorite and it now serves as a reminder to take the road less traveled (I have definitely always taken the scenic route). 

Master Bedrooms are always last on most of my client’s design to do lists. I definitely advise against this.  But, I’m a “do as I say and not as I do” kind of gal.  The master suite was not really on my radar for this project go-round.  But, it somehow made the cut.  We painted the walls a pewter metallic with a putty swirl design.  We added pops of orange with the vintage sofa, bedding and art. 

 Creative people need creative spaces.  For my office, we went with a large stripe on the walls with a dark aqua and candle light metallic paint combination.  The desk was made from my dads old workshop table (I love this touch).  I finally got a chandelier in my office along with all of my favorite books and pictures surrounding me.  No excuses now…I better get the design whip crackin!

I finally got my turn!!!!!  And, I would definitely recommend my designer…she was great!
