BEFORE AND AFTER






Lord it has been a while since I have had a good before and after!  

But before we get all "designy" thanks for all of your suggestions about my nasty rotten cold.  After a week and a half I think I've turned the corner.  It's weird because I feel like such a complainer...... and I think it was because I forgot what a cold feels like!

I better save that for something serious like cancer.  

Lesson learned.

OK....down to business.  We had not gotten to my clients guest room yet but they were having family for Christmas and he asked if there was a way I could turn it around quickly.

You guys know I am always up for a challenge [even sick] so I accepted.

Luckily there was furniture so it was mostly the fun stuff.

They were waiting for the mattress which came on Tuesday.

Before

I wasn't going to reinvent the wheel since I only had about a day and 1/2 to shop.

After
I stuck with white bedding.....sheets from PB Duvet from BBB and the coverlet from Target.  I happen to have the black and white pillows that I bought from the July Market so that was my starting point!

I scored this throw from HomeGoods which was perfect!  I actually went to three other HG's looking for another one.  My sister who helped me with the install could not believe I was letting it go:)


At the last minute I threw these baskets in my car [that I already had] just in case I needed them and it turned out to be the perfect thing!

I looked everywhere for lamps.  Since the end tables were small I ended up useing these from Target.  The good thing is that using some less inexpensive things allowed me spend more on art.

Before

After






It was the 11th hour when I stumbled upon these cute stools from Target.

Before

After

I scored this art at HG's....



There are a few stores I always pop into for some good accessories and one is Noah & Co.  I scored this pillow which again...the stars were definitely aligned!





Found some good black and white books from HG's [so glad they are stocking these now!]

Before

Here is where I had a slight fail.....
After

I could not find the perfect mirror for over the chest:(

Another piece of great art from Noah & Co.


I did find a black and white  phone cord and that made me happy!

And this boxed water from World Market right!

Before

After

Last install of the year.  Boom.

Love y'all....thanks for all of your support!

On the "Noah & Co. website they don't list any prices. Is this retail source open for anyone or just those in the industry? Thank you, Carmen
