Hopefully, you've been waiting for this 'Room Reveal' that I mentioned the other day...and this is it! Now keep in mind that this room transformation is NOT complete with accessories yet...that will come next. We design it, get client's approval of the plan, order everything, send fabrics to our workroom, etc....then once all of that is here, we install it. It's sometimes after this that we finish off the room and give it that personality fitting of our clients!
OK, let's take a look at our client's room before...
(Yes, that's a Christmas wreath still laying out on an upstairs bed...months after Christmas -Ha!)
Can you tell this is an un-used upstairs guest bedroom? With green carpet? That needs some help?
She told me in the very beginning that I could move the rocker to the bonus room area (another work in progress) and get rid of everything else in the room unless I wanted to work it into the plan. We talked about her 'vision' for this room and she told me she didn't have one. She had told me a little earlier that she'd love to use this picture (below) in the house somewhere...and since we've pretty much done her entire home now...I decided to use it in this room!
So THIS became my jumping off point for the room! She loves horses and use to horse-back ride when she was younger...and still does from time to time now-a-days. Perfect...let's think western flair, a little rustic, casual, and a little sas! What will that turn out like...do ya wonder?
After much time spent looking through our fabrics, deliberating on which bedding options we wanted, valance styles, searching our furniture catalogs, etc... all while keeping this horse picture in mind...along with HER tastes (she LOVES flowers)...and this GREEN carpet in here...I finally felt we had something planned that would fit her 'to a tee' so I pulled this design board together for her. This always helps give the client a "feel" of the room design. As you can see, she has two choices for fabric design and they are the exact same color-way just different patterns (I knew which she'd choose!). The room has SO much green in it (with the carpet) yet I needed to find fabric that had at least some of the green in it, but not much. The red is the accent fabric in the room (which is also used in here since there is red in the bathroom connected to this room - got to "flow"!) which also pulls this color out of the brown fabrics a bit more. (There was actually another board too that had the other wall elevations on it so she could see the layout from each angle.)
She loved the design plan...everything about it (yea!). I had changed the pillow design a bit (after taking this photo of the board) and had also sourced out a different stand for the TV with the same rustic look but much less than this one (well, what do ya know, that is on this board pic). Once we met and I went over all the details of this design with her then we got things rolling.
Then, fast forward to last Wednesday - install day. It looked something like this...
Even I was carrying items over to the client's home...why me when we have a delivery truck? Well, it was so hot out and
worrying concerned me thought the art may melt (yea, right!) and the glue on the shades may be effected....such details - I KNOW I overthink things most times!
OK, I got in the way of the photos...so I will allow it here...as long as it's small...!!!!
Our delivery guys bringing in the lovely chairs for this room.
Installer looking for just what he needs...valances up...headboard next.
One of our installers getting ready to help hoist the headboard up to be mounted on the bed-frame. She's just assisting him.
A couple of distressed shelves...perfect!
Here are the final results (again, remember...no accessories yet!)...
This matelasse coverlet will drop the wrinkles!
A little blurry...all are phone pics...and before vacuuming up after ourselves! These birdcage pictures will look just right once we get a little height on the table in the middle...again, that's where accessories come into play to finish it off.
I LOVE these fabrics together! Glad she does too!
(Sorry for the commode seat being UP - ugh! Pet peeve but didn't realize it was up at the time. Ah, and I just realized the vacuum is sitting there too. Oops! Picky Picky Picky - believe me, I KNOW I am! Ha!)
(is that a word???) Bottom drawer is cedar lined and both sides have that awesome feature (that we love to use) called FurnLite. Touch night lights and outlets installed right into the furniture. This is GREAT for guests - touch the side of the nightstand during the night for a light to come on under the furniture...and plug in the MP3 and cell phones, etc....right into the nightstand itself. How neat is that!
So, once again...HERE is the final result of that install day!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed it. There's still more work to do in here and maybe I'll share that with you once it's done! And I really NEED to get a 'real' photographer on the job sites...need to work on that one for sure!
Have a "Simply Irresistible" Day!
