Spicing up this bachelor pad

This was one of my favorite projects. Not only because it is such a dramatic before and after, but also because my client was so fun and adventurous! He was always on board to try something funky. Take a little step by step look at everything we accomplished. So much fun! :)


He had just moved in here and knew that his home had potential. Notice the boring wall color, dated light fixture and strange chair rail.


Potential town! Love a bump out! :)


What will become the dining area...


The color palette I presented him with.


Things getting messy in the brainstorming process!


Proud client with his mood board! :)


The moodboard! (We ended up swapping out black accents for a neutral gray instead.)


The floorplan to scale.


Now we're getting moving! Some fun color added to the walls. :) We were able to go bold and made such a large impact with color alone!


Things are starting to filter in.


Piece by piece.


Hanging curtains!


Always a little hectic before the room is beautiful. :)


New light fixture!


And here is the finished product!! 


I love a vignette shot. :)


The dining room is so much better.


That Mitchell Gold chair was the inspiration for the rest of the room. :)


Enjoying the new space.


I think he likes it! :)


Before | After

So yes, that was a very long entry today! I am just ecstatic to be able to share the process, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the final product. Let me know what you think too!

Timothy Paul Bedding + Home

Just found out about this sale, and wanted to spread the word. You can't miss it. They are original and usually pricey (because of their high quality) rugs at a super discount warehouse sale. Tim is a friend and told me that they just have too much stock and need to get rid of some inventory. I highly recommend people take the trip and check it out. They're not advertising it, except to their client list serve, and today and tomorrow I believe it is only available to designers, however all weekend it is open to the public. Maybe I'll see you there! :) Here's all the info!
