Daniela’s Room: The before
Ok so I’m not as sneaky as I thought I was. You guys got it right away! Daniela studied abroad for a semester to Florence. Her apartment was right across from the Duomo. You could practically stick your hand out her window and touch it!
I had a hard time finding pics of the trip that didn’t give it away, because the majority of my pictures looked like this:
Ok before I continue on my tangent of just re-living my Italian getaway I’ll get to the before pics.
Let me preface by saying that I loved the 80s. The music, the clothes, the hair. I wish I was a teenager during them, but the furniture choices not so much.
Don’t you just love the huge round mirror? Ah! Along with my sister’s collection of plaster funtime pieces that she thought would look oh so great next to it. Plus all her (let’s just call it like it is) crap that is on top of the dresser.
Ok so there a ton of pillows on the bed so you can’t really see the massive circular headboard with gold trim, but trust me it’s horrible!
The other side of them has a sad looking IKEA chair that has seen better days and a bookcase that is busting at the seams!
The major offense in the room is the chessy 80’s furnture. My sister detests it so I’m sure she won’t be mad that it has left the building.
The walls had recently been painted within the last year and my mom loves the color so that was staying. I actually like the color as well so that was good and it worked with my inspiration piece.
Stay tuned tomorrow for what inspired the room and a sneak peek at my fabric choices.
I’m off to finish up some details. I need to purchase accessories and I’m at the end of my budget!
