Well, folks, can you believe it? We survived week one. This week, I wanted to share a little peek into our design plan. We went through a few rounds of tweaks (as every design does), to ultimately land on the third design board. I'm going to get a bit more into how these decisions were made in next week's post. For now, I'll walk you through the basics.
These are what I call "fast and dirty design boards." We've made so many changes along the way - and shared many text convos, emails, pinterest messages - to ultimately land here. We've talked out every single aspect of this design; the boards merely represent those chats.
Like I mentioned in the last post, Alana had some items worth keeping. Her vintage brass bed is a real winner; there's no way we were getting rid of that. Alana also had a great vintage rug that we pulled colors from for the wall tones. We both agreed that her space needed wallpaper. To keep the budget in check, we chose to wallpaper just one accent wall, behind the headboard. In the sleep space, we knew we needed to replace the current nightstands in favor of something more substantial. Sconces were also a MUST, as the lamps HAD TO GO!
Onto the dressing space...so excited for this one! We're keeping Alana's great old dresser. Vintage cabinetry is being installed on the adjoining wall. In the center of there space, there will be a great vintage rug, bench and some additional oddities We've also secured a wonderful vintage dress form to really drive the look home.
As I mentioned, I'll dive deeper into how we got to where we are next week - how we chose the wallpaper, paint, etc. For now, be sure to follow along on our project's Pinterest board. I'd love to hear from YOU! What are your favorite elements of this design?
