Brainstorming bedrooms

If you follow me on snapchat, you may have seen me talk about a huge project that I hope to finish this year! Im excited to be working on a entire home remodel decorating about 4 bedrooms, two living spaces, kitchen, & dining area. Its slightly overwhelming but I cant wait to see my visions become a reality!

The construction on the home should be wrapped up at the beginning of the year, at that point, I can begin the design process (the fun part!). So, while I still have a little time I've been brainstorming different bedroom ideas. Check out what I've come up with so far...

The home will be occupied with all males, so I tried to keep the bedrooms neutral while doing something different with each space.

This room is almost nautical with all of the navy but way more toned down. I love how grey is the neutral in this space.

This ultimate guys room features leather and wood neutrals. Very clean and masculine.

 I thought this space was pretty gender neutral. The calm color pallet resembles a relaxing hotel get-a-way.

For the younger guest, the fun colors in this room brighten up the day. Cool abstract art make for a nice eye catcher.

All of these spaces are rough drafts, but I love getting my creative juices flowing with new projects on my hands. Which one is your favorite?

From "Stale to Serene" office makeover

Its so exciting when you finally get that corner office all to yourself!...but in this case, my client was given a corner office, in a basement, with half of a window and drab furnishings. We needed a major makeover in this space and surprisingly it didn't take much effort!

This empty office was cold and stale. My client was given typical office furniture out of the storage closet and horrible wall art. She desired a warm inviting space that was a getaway from her highly stressful job.

Fortunately, the existing accent wall wasn't such a terrible color and she had a few unused pieces from her home office that we could incorporate.

A few of her must haves for her space were: organization, interesting art, and a functional layout. We started by creating a layout that made her office feel larger and could hold up to two more guest if needed.

Kirkland's had our interesting art. My client fell in LOVE with these African ladies she affectionately named "Sasha & Malia". Their warm pallet went very well with the accent wall and set the tone for the rest of the space.

As far as organization goes we wanted to keep it functional yet decorative. The framed bulletin board makes her reminders look a little prettier and the woven baskets beautifully hold important files and documents.

We added a floor lamp with a warm light to keep the space calm and serene so that she could tackle those morning emails in peace.

Filling desktops and bookshelves with interesting nick knacks and personal photos always makes an office feel a little cozier.

My client is thoroughly enjoying her new office! Lets just hope she can get a little work done :)

Stone Mountian Refresh

One of my clients, was in need of a major home refresh! Fortunately, she did have good taste and a LOT of things to work with! My great design partner Gavin & I were able to completely transform her home.

My client loves to entertain, so she was looking for spaces that had even flow for her guest. We made sure to create cozy nooks for guest to gather including conversation pieces to get the party started. The colors in the home are rich and earthy and each room has its own story while flowing perfectly together.

Check out the E-Designs and photos of her living room, dining room, den, and half bath:

Living room E-Design

Absolutely LOVING this 

Rooms to Go sofa

 topped with earthy patterned pillows snagged from Home Goods!

Our goal was to completely brighten the space while keeping it rich and earthy. We left out a coffee table in this room to keep the room "walk-able" for her guest while entertaining. This room features a pretty cozy conversation nook with the cutest chairs from TJ Maxx!

Dining room E-Design

Our design challenge for this room was keeping the dining room table. We kept it simple with the dining room and complemented her existing grand gold mirror with gold chargers. We added a small pop of color with the beautiful sea shell with hint of purple and cream as a centerpiece. 

Den E-Design

(The mantle art in this photo was moved to the reading nook once the client purchased a TV.)

My client already owned the red furniture, so we moved it all into the den. This room stays cozy and earthy as well, with a dash of class. Plenty of spaces to cuddle up and read a book or watch a movie

.

Half bath E-Design

Didn't need too much in this tiny bath. We kept the colors calm and added a splash of red to flow with the attached red den. Oh, and those soaps from World Market smell delightful ;)

My client absolutely LOVES her home. She says that it "finally feels like home" and that was the main goal! We hope she's ready to entertain because we definitely want our invite over ;)

Modern man cave

I've been working on a redesign for a recently finished basement ..turned man cave! 

The bones of the

space were kept rustic and industrial and I decided to warm up the place with a light slate grey, hunter green, and chocolate brown color theme. My client was on a tight budget after investing much of his funds into finishing the basement. So for decor, I challenged myself to use one store:

Ikea

. Ikea was a home run! After our walk through the maze of a store, we fell in love with the

Koldby

cow hide rug. It's funky and still warm enough for the space. We chose the

Hektar

floor lamp because of its industrial look and intimate light. Basics such as the

Pugg

wall clock,

Gullklocka

pillow cover, and cool

Knodd

trash can completed the needed decor on our list. The best thing about man caves are the personal touches. We'll be adding old trophies, framed records, and fraternity memorabilia for the finishing touches. I can't wait to share the finished project with you all! Stay tuned for updates on my
