it's that time friends, reveal day for the guest participants of the one room challenge with linda of blog calling it home! those six weeks flew by, but the work to transform the former master bathroom in our 1960s home into the kids' bath was well worth it! this time around, i was blessed to finish early and have my friend and talented photographer erica mark shoot the room for me. before we get to the good stuff, take a look back at the progress along the way...
the room went from blah to beautiful, and i am so happy to share the final space with you! i ended up leaving the shower tile as-is, and with the newness of everything else, i actually don't mind it now (kinda). take a look at my design board for the room, and where we started...
i am so in love with this bathroom! it's cheery, fun and perfect for my two boys. i love that i was able to reuse my vintage mirror and it look appropriate in the space, and since i stole sutton's dresser for this project (= temporarily messy room) i now am on the hunt for a new piece for his bedroom! i'm sure it will be vintage of course ;)
take a look at some fun detail shots...
i sincerely hope you've enjoyed this transformation as much as i have! it feels good to almost have the entire house completed. one more thing off my list! check out the other guest participants at calling it home to see their reveals too. i'm going to spend a good bit of time this week/weekend catching up! a complete source list is below.
a huge thank you to craig waltonowski, ashley mullis, and erica mark for all their help along the way, and to linda of calling it home for hosting this amazing event! this is my fourth ORC and i can't wait to do it again in october! and a special thank you to my youngest schafer, for helping with the finishing touches. i love you sweet pea!
design swell. live well.
welcome to week five of the ORC with linda of blog calling it home! while things are progressing, i'm getting nervous with the deadline looming! the wallpaper is going up tomorrow, and after a few accessories, it will be time for pictures! i can't wait!
things to report this week...
the art did arrive, but it was damaged, these things happen. i love the art piece though, so cute! crossing my fingers the replacement will be here before next week!!!!
on the bright side, there are some amazing projects going on at calling it home, head over and check them out! i promise to instagram a shot of the wallpaper asap! design swell. live well.
the hellners contacted me when their neighbor, who is friends with my client carrie giamio, referred my services. they needed help overhauling their master bedroom, and i'm super excited to share this project with you! this will be a very dramatic before and after. this is the room now...
as you can see, the room is very dark. we're going to address that with lighter furniture, paint and new lighting. we'll also create a focal point behind the bed with this amazing onyx wallpaper.
my clients love purple, so i'm using it in subtle doses around the room. take a look at the design board showing my plans for the space. this is going to be one very posh bedroom, i can't wait!!
stay tuned for the install coming up! design swell. live well.
the second part of my install for the Carney's consisted of their master bedroom, which was a blank slate. I kept with the couples modern taste and chose a monochromatic gray scheme with pops of teal. the couples outdated furniture was a thing of the past and they were ready to upgrade for a new look. lets take a look at the original design for the space:
the master bathroom also got a major overhaul, it was included in the renovation and had to go through the historical committee for approval of the plans which ended up taking longer than planned.
but in the end the modern update is just beautiful!!
design is a way of life.
