This bunkhouse was so much fun to dream up! The homeowner wanted a gender neutral space for kids that complimented the “outdoorsy” aesthetic of the rest of the home. We painted a faux deer head and added bluebirds for a fairytale vibe that coordinated with the black and white artwork hanging beneath it. We also made the large canvas art ourselves- using a shower curtain. Yes- a shower curtain! We painted over the trees and deer to add depth and texture. We wanted to create a fun place for kids to come visit, explore and relax on vacation.
We had the privilege of creating and implementing the design plan for this rustic retreat that will be available to rent later this month. This vacation rental has three bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, an open floor plan and a large back yard surrounded by trees. This project was so much fun to work on! Scroll down to the bottom to see some “before” photos. This home has been transformed!
I experimented with some functional vignettes in my kitchen this weekend. I wanted something that saved counter space and brought some aesthetic appeal. I was inspired after visiting numerous kitchen vendors while helping my parents embark on a renovation of their own last week. There are so many ways to use trays to group things together for organization and beautiful displays.
Isn’t this quote the truth?! I feel that my previous background in social work really helps me tune in to people’s emotional needs and translate that into a design that brings comfort to their surroundings and feeds their soul. Understanding how color, texture, lighting and space makes you FEEL is so important. Do you agree? I love how walking into a well designed room makes me FEEL. It’s all about the “feels” for me.
