So, let's get started shall we? This room with it's lovely blue carpet has already seen some help...and this photo was taken after the matching blue walls were painted!
Carpet, gone (and the layer of indoor/outdoor carpet underneath), floors sanded and painted a creamy white...
The room has great bones; gorgeous beefy mouldings, lots of light and a spacious size.
The new resident of the space above is going to be my cousin Jesse and her husband GW's baby girl! I have shared a bit about Jesse & GW here. Let's just say this couple has fantastic taste and Jesse, being the DIY girl that she is, will be up to the task of the many Do It Yourself projects we have planned to make this a knock out room.
When we got started, Jesse sent me these inspiration photos that summed up the feel she wanted for the room... soft, feminine, all girl!
After looking at lots of bedding and tons of fabrics to find the perfect starting point, Jesse decided that the inspiration for the room was already in her possession, this lovely, sophisticated rug with it's natural background and seaglass blues, sage greens and coral reds.
I am thrilled with this as the foundation and have lots of great ideas about pulling it all together.
As of today, fabric and paint samples are on order so that we can hone in on the textile direction and wall color of the room. Once we get that decided I will share more about the DIY projects and keep you up to date on the room's progress. This "sweet girl" will be here before you know it, so we need to get crackin' on completing this space!
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx
