OK.....where to start.
I could just show a before and after picture and be done with it.....but you guys seem to like the process. I am kind of like that also.
I want to know why decisions are being made.
Of course as I have said before there are many factors that affect the plan.
Correct me if I'm wrong but time and budget are the biggest right?
When I got a call about this guest bedroom makeover she had already purchased bedding, bedside lamps, a Kubu chair, and a mirror along with painting the room. She and her husband also diy'ed a headboard!
Being a working Mom with a young baby I think she felt overwhelmed to get it pulled together before company in a little over 3 weeks.
Sherika to the rescue. It was also a plus that they eat at my sisters restaurant Nancy G's Cafe.
Here is the paint color BM White Sand
And here is the fabric used for the headboard.
This is where we started.
We discussed changing things out but with so little time I thought the best plan was to enhance what was already started. Let's move forward.
I wanted to paint the pedestal table on the left along with a dresser she got from her Mom the same color to bring some continuity into the space.
I chose BM Galveston Gray
It was close to the gray in the headboard and since the room was small I wanted the eye to have some places to rest.
When I first toured her home I noticed that she liked soft neutral colors...and maybe she mentioned that she was not a big fan of black and dark colors.
Whatev.....let me force you out of that box.
Here is a board that I put together for her.....using navy, green and white.
After I sent it I waited for the phone to ring with her proclaiming what a genius I was.
Me: "Hello". In a light sing songy voice.
Her: "Sherry this is perfect and I am ready to jump out of that box into this brilliant plan."
What I got was this....
Her: "Meh". "Not so much".
Her: "Yeah...what part of dark colors and black did you not hear?"
Me: "Yeah but".....
Dang. Plus maybe this one was going to be a tiny bit over the budget. Budget smudget. I hate clients who work in finance.
OK....that is the good thing about design...there is always door number 2.
I sent her this picture....Ah....love.
Great we have a winner. I can work with this.
Now here is where you are going to want to punch me in the face.
I am going to show you the painted chest and then save the rest until the next post.
Isn't she a beauty now?
Go ahead and cuss me....then come back on Wednesday for the reveal.
