E-Design Client Photos

Hola hola blogosphere! I’m promising to be better at blogging from now on. The holidays just set me back a bit with work so I’ve been having to play catch up.

Anyways, I’m pretty excited to share some photos that me E-Design client sent me this week. So here’s what you need to know about her:

-she lives in New York

-looking to add some color and more finished design elements into her bedroom

-interested in a blend of eclectic and whimsical design

-she works in hospitals so is really unattracted to those pastel, “calming” colors

These are the before photos she sent me:

3She absolutely hated the lavender on the walls and I don’t blame her. The room just feels a bit cold and stark. Not really a place I would feel nested and cozy in on a cold winter night in New York.

I do love the older character of the space. The thick molding and baseboards showed me a lot of potential for fun design elements.

So after sending her a questionnaire and images of bedrooms that appealed to her, I ended up with 2 different options for her space:

BEDROOM GOLD VIEWS The gold bedroom was warm, inviting, colorful with bohemian touches.

BEDROOM PURPLE VIEWSThe purple room was a bit warmer and more sophisticated. Same ideas for bohemian touches and bold color but a bit earthier.

So she chose the purple option:

And here are the after photos she sent me:

I love when my clients are total rockstars. She pretty much got everything I suggested and I think it looks ridiculously awesome. I might need to move in with her for a bit. She is going to send me some photos during the day which I will post but I just wanted to show you guys how much just a bit of color and inspiration can change a whole space. I’m excited to move on to her living room soon. And look, even the cat is stoked! Laying on the bed all cozy.

I offer E-Design packages for $250 per room and when you add other rooms, the price begins to drop. So don’t be afraid to ask for design help from afar!

Major Catch Up Time!

Guys! It’s been FOREVER! You have no idea how sucky it has been for me to not be able to connect through my blog. It took until now to get it fixed. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen again.

Anyways, where to begin? So much design has been going on in the last couple of weeks. Let’s do a sneak peak today and this week I will elaborate of everything:

So I’ve been working with a remote design client on her bedroom. Things she liked: Bohemian, Whimsical style and Color:

I had my first craft fair of the season and it was super fun and such a beautiful day:

It’s super hard to see, but if you look closely, you can see these metal gates with a swirl design. I designed those almost 3 years ago when I worked for Arteak. They were made in Indonesia and they are finally installed!:

The design for my beachy client is coming together for her bedroom. Walls are painted, furniture and furnishings bought, wall is stenciled, carpets installed and now we are waiting for the built-in bench to be made. This was a 3D model that I last updated:

I finally completed the commissioned painting that was to be a replica of another original of mine:

And finally, here is a bachelor pad I have been working on. The style is a blend of modern, industrial, rustic and mid century:

So good to be back. I missed this all too much. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Bohemian Bedroom

Yesterday I blogged about Bohemian living rooms. I figured I would stay on the same theme this week. There is something so mysterious about the bohemian style. It is unpredictable which makes it so exciting. Let me share some awesome Bohemian style bedrooms:

Don’t you ever wonder who actually lives in these homes?

Bohemian Living Room

I love Bohemian style because it is just a free expression of yourself. No rules except for put things together that you love. Nothing needs to be matching. As a matter of fact, it is more Bohemian if things don’t match. Think individual, creative, romantic, hippie, and free spirited. Here are a few Bohemian living rooms that I love:

Go crazy with colors, patterns and styles.
