I often wait until the end of a project to share it on my blog or my Instagram account. However this project is so special to me that I wanted to share the progress start to finish. My newest In-Person Design client and new dear friend hired me to create a room for her little girl. Her little girl has cerebral Palsy and they are changing their first floor office into her bedroom. Her current bedroom is on the second floor and she is getting to big to carry up and down the stairs. In addition, my client and friend is expecting her fourth daughter in July. They will need the extra bedroom upstairs for a new nursery.
One request from the family was to use a daybed instead of a regular bed, with the idea that they will only need to add a guard on one side of the bed with the other two already in place.
I created a custom daybed design with a headboard in the back. I wanted her to have a special "big girl bed" despite it being a daybed. I love big fabric headboards for little girls rooms. I wanted her to have the same despite it being a daybed. I never saw a design like this before but imagined it and searched for someone that could make it! I was so happy to find a company that could!
Here is the first draft I presented to the family:
The wingback love seat is a sleeper sofa. So if a parent or care taker need to stay overnight they can sleep comfortably nearby in her room.
I chose a pink and gold theme to grow with her. I did not want the room to be too "little girl" and they would have to re-do it in a few years.
