Peaceful Pale Blue and Linen Master Bedroom

When decorating Master Bedrooms I tend to stay on the neutral and soothing side. I like bedrooms to feel peaceful.  They are certainly a help in a good nights sleep!
 

This room was inspired by those beautiful pillows in the center. When designing this space I used linen colors , Whites , creams and soft blues .  A hint of grey can be seen in the chairs and the rug.

Happy Sunday! We call Sunday " Family Fun Day" at our home! We are spending our day at the lake beach down in our community ! I'm so excited warmer weather is finally here! 

 This Sunday "Brands I love" is a company called OOMPH based out of  Connecticut. They specialize in the most elegant beach furniture and decor and their pieces are beautiful and unique. 

oomph. It's all in the definition — personal charm, magnetism, glamour, punch and vitality. Your favorite people have it ... but what about your home?

Lounging on a beach in the Bahamas, with cocktails in hand, oomph founders Amy Rice, Patty Hopple and Louise Brooks came up with the notion that three simple elements of great design can totally transform any room. In other words, custom-made tables and chairs, unique lighting, and beautiful pillows can add ‘oomph’ to any nest. Entirely made in the U.S.A., oomph brings you a witty collection of home décor including, chic coffee tables, comfy chairs, striking, modern pillows, lighting and much more. Whether your style is trendy or traditional, there is always room for a little oomph! And who doesn't need a little more of that?

I was excited to see that OOMPH Tini tables are now on sale at One Kings Lane

Sweet little Girls Room | First Draft

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. 

I found a wonderful company on Etsy who can create my custom design for the daybed.  The company is called Liven up Design.  You can find them also on Instagram @livenupdesign .  They can also make beautiful custom benches/ottomans as seen in front of the love seat and window below. 

This is only the first draft and some starting ideas.  I am sure we will make some changes and revisions to fit the families needs.  I will continue to update the changes and progress of this project. I am so happy to be a part of it!

Beach House Online Design

My latest 3D online design that I completed was a beautiful beach house sitting room. My client was looking to update her gorgeous light filled room with a beach theme to highlight her beautiful ocean view. 

The design dilemma ...... how to decorate in blues, aquas and whites while coordinating and not clashing with her existing dining set with rust coral chairs that exists in the same space.  

I sent her three different first draft options. She combined items from all three and came up with a beautiful room. Her choices were great !  The color scheme we used was a pale blue, white , aqua and coral. The coral color tied in to the rust color dining chairs and added a pop of color to the space. 

Here is a before picture of her room.

Two of the rusty coral dining chairs are seen below

I AM SURE MY CLIENT AND HER FAMILY WILL GET A LOT OF ENJOYMENT OUT OF HER NEW SPACE THIS SUMMER. I can just picture them relaxing and looking out at that gorgeous view!!!!  What a fun project to work on! I am excited to see the end result! 

 

Have a  WonderFUl Week!

"Little Gentleman Nursery"

The most challenging client I have ever worked with is by far myself. Design after design I can not make a decision about my baby boy "to be's" nursery. This is my third baby. My first two I knew instantly how I wanted to decorate their rooms. No second guessing.  You would think my third nursery would be a piece of cake.  I couldnt have been more wrong!

My first baby was also a boy. I decorated his nursery in the traditional and sweet baby blue. It was peaceful and adorable. However, he is now five years old and his room is still baby blue with white furniture. (Next project is a big boy room for him).  I learned from this mistake and decorated my daughters nursery able to grow with her.  We just changed her crib to a big girl bed, and added bedding and she had an instant"big girl room". 

My goal for this baby was the same as my daughters room..... a room that would easily grow with him.  I therefore chose neutral colors, a darker gray furniture( instead of the traditional white for a baby). 

The inspiration for this room was to use all the traditional masculine fabrics such as plaid, pinstripe, herringbone, checks, and houndstooth. I added in some wood accents to balance out the room such as the wood and metal "school chair", wood and metal side table and wooden rocking horse. 

The crib I found was RH baby and Child inspired but without the heavy price tag. It also turns into a full size bed. The only thing we will need to purchase is bedding when he is bigger for his "big boy room".

I decided against a rocker or a glider. I hardly used the rocking chair in either of my babies nurseries.  I nursed my babies in my bed and co-slept. Co-Sleeping was one of those things that I swore I would never do "pre-motherhood". Its amazing how natural instant, extreme exhaustion, and the extreme bond you instantly feel make your parenting decisions and everything you thought you would do pre-pregnancy goes out the window! 

I found a great deal with this black and white houndstooth chair on clearance in the outlet section of Home Decorators. My hope is that it will last much longer in his room than a rocker or glider. It will also work for reading stories during his toddler years. 

I was designing this room on a budget and did not want to either spend a huge portion of the budget on a glider that he would only use briefly , nor did I want to  buy a budget friendly microfiber glider that would fall apart and not look so nice in his room.  

If you are going to invest in a glider or rocker a great alternative is buying a rocking chair that converts to a regular chair when you are done. I bought a beautiful white Pottery Barn converting rocking chair with replacement legs. It transforms into a beautiful white chair that I can use in her room, or elsewhere in my home when we no longer need the rockers. It made spending the money more logical since you will most likely only use the rocker for the first year or so. Pottery Barn has many more converting rockers now in many styles then they did five years ago when I purchased.  When you are done rocking your newborn you will have a beautiful chair that will then be worth the money that you will spend. 

I can't wait to show you the grand reveal when its completed!

Light and Bright Country Living Room 3D E-design

My newest 3D E-design client asked me to help her update her country living room. Her current room (that they have had for years) was deep burgundy and beige/greens. She wanted to update the space and make it more light and bright. Here is a before picture of her space. 

familyroompicture.jpg

And THE AFTER. . . . . . 

She previously picked out some artwork for the space. I used the artwork to help guide me in a color scheme for the room.  The artwork she selected had tones beige blue and yellow green.

 The geometric pillow has tiny yellow/green dots in the fabric that coordinate well with the pops of yellow/green in the art. Just a little of that color can go a long way. (See close up of fabrics below). 

This was actually the second storyboard I presented to my client. The first had a white sectional, floral traditional rug and a slightly different color scheme. My client provided feedback that she wasn't sure about a sectional and was worried about a white sofa in her main family room. In addition the first storyboard was slightly over budget. We decided to try a sofa and loveseat and saved money on a different style rug (grey border rug above) and more budget friendly curtains , and coffee table. (The white curtains in above storyboard are from Ikea)!  

Here is a look at the first storyboard that was presented to my client. Sometimes it takes a few adjustments to get it just right. 

The best part about a 3D- Edesign is that you can see how your new furniture will look in your own home!  You can buy your furniture with confidence that you will like how it all looks togehter. I think the end result will be stunning! I can't wait to see how it all comes together! For more information about 3D e-designs please contact Kelly at info@peacefulhomedecor and read more Here .
