This weekend I got to go do a partial install at my favorite client’s home. You see a couple of months ago I had a meeting with an almost 10 yr old little lady. Turns out all she wanted for her 10th birthday was to get a new room. So I was brought in and we had a design consult and discussed her likes/dislikes and over all design styles.
Here is what her room looked like when I first arrived:
There was a little too much pink, flowers and country style furniture for my little client’s current needs.
We are still waiting on a couple of things to arrive, but here is what we ended up with on Saturday:
I love all of the hand painted pieces that my client has in her room:
We decided on a new color palette of orange/white/bright pink. When I first met with my client she actually wanted a white lacquered walls! My kind of girl. We couldn’t get the okay on that, but we did have the walls painted an almost white shade and then had a bit of fun with an orange stripe. Paper lanterns were also high on her list so I had to make sure I had those on hand this weekend.
We switched out most of the furniture in the room, but the desk had to stay so it got a little face lift and a stylish new chair.
Yes, totally jealous that my little client has a ghost chair and I don’t.
We also needed a little hang out nook so we went a bit retro and did a bean bag chair and a modern pod side table. The paper lanterns are floating over the chair.
A big plus to the new room design was going from a twin bed to a full sized bed. You can’t imagine how excited she was about that. We are still waiting on the mattress, but here is a little peak:
Custom artwork is also a must have so I went with a budget friendly option and picked up this print by Jen atMade by Girl.
Don’t worry it’s going to get hung over this piece once it arrives.
The traditional window valances also needed to disappear. We wanted to keep things chic and simple so we did this instead:
It was a really easy DIY project that I’m going to blog about tomorrow.
A couple of pieces are still missing, but the over all look has now taken over the room and we had a very happy client on our hands as we were leaving.
How was your weekend?
