Wow. Some real magic happened today in the design process. With a very early start at 8:00am, the delivery truck rolled up side by side with the owner's contractor and the electrician. Full house!
Fred (Sneelock) instantly got to work hanging blinds, draperies, mirrors and art.
Jackie made all the beds with the new bedding ensembles, directed the delivery and helped me with the placement of the rugs, I think the young moving team was needing a stiff drink by the time I had them change each rug an inch over and three inches down. Rug placement is a real challenge!
Linda and I rethought the tween room I designed and tried about three different layouts (in real time!). This involved moving two twin beds, two dressers, one rug, one chair and a desk . We tried three different layouts, each having its own merits. We decided on the perfect design and I'll tell you the comments of the cute occupant of the room in a bit. I took some photos of the room as it sat as the family had placed it when they moved in.
|This is the entrance into the room as originally placed...it almost made a long narrow hallway with the beds on the left.|
|Just a corner shot of the dining room...|
|This photo is so disappointing, but I'll share it anyway. Lots of riff- raff in the background, my accessory stash. The colors are graphite and orange accents.It's turning out to be a great room.|
Tomorrow we have another full day planned. Lots of finishing touches, draperies to be hung, art placement and some of my favorite work in the finishing touches. We have a few errands to do to find replacement lamp shades for some lamps we want to re-purpose and several small accents we just realized that we needed.
I'm glad you're along for the ride. It's a really rewarding transformation.
