I know many of you come to the blog for my tours of some amazing homes, but I what I really do is work for clients! [See my E-design & Services page!]
So I though I'd share a little e-design project recently completed for a young family. A former military family, now looking to put down some roots, my client came to me looking for help with two bedrooms - a guest room and a shared room for her "almost 5-year-old" twins. The kicker? The twins are a boy and a girl, so the room needed to be gender neutral.
Incorporating some furniture she wanted to keep, and a few things she had already bought or had her heart set on, I created a bright and happy room for her twins, and a cheerful guest bedroom with a touch of mod influence.
Cheery Guest Bedroom with a Mod Influence
Curtains: Client's Own; Paint: Benjamin Moore; Birch Tree Watercolor Print: Etsy, Sheeting: Serena & Lily; Triple Bubble Lamp: AllModern; Mirror: Wisteria; Desk Lamp: West Elm; Navy Patterned Throw Pillow: Etsy; Yellow Patterned Duvet: Serena & Lily; Grey Shams: Ballard Designs; Desk: West Elm; Rug: West Elm
My client had already fallen in love with the idea of a grey and goldenrod yellow room with a mid-century influence to contrast against the antique wooden bed she had always had in the guest room. Incorporating the rugby striped curtains she had already purchased, I mixed bedding and accessories to make sure the room was both welcoming and functional. The petite desk also functions as a nightstand and packs a lot of style in a little package!
Brother-and-Sister Shared Twins Bedroom
Paint: Benjamin Moore; Zebra Papier Mache Head: Furbish Studio; Curtains & Striped Duvet and Shams: Pottery Barn Kids; Lamps: Client's Own; Dresser: IKEA customized with O'Verlays; Shams with Grey Trim: Biscuit Home; Pom Pom Trim Lumbar Pillows: Etsy; Turquoise Pillows: Etsy: Monogrammed Pillows: Etsy; Rug: Dash & Albert; Throw Blankets: Furbish Studio
My client wanted to keep a set of four multi-colored, abstract pastels that her sister had drawn for the twins (not pictured), and I used their vibrant colors as a starting point. The vintage orange lamps with their embroidered, colorful shades were a favorite my client had bought and wanted to keep. I made a room that would please a Kindergarten-aged brother and sister, that was a bright and happy showcase for many rainbow colored accessories.
I live for client work and there's nothing better than working with my enthusiastic clients to make their homes more livable, stylish, and happy!
