Traditional Bedroom Retreat: A Before and After!

My client’s bedroom felt dull and lifeless. Green walls and stark furniture placement made the room feel unwelcoming and not exactly a restful haven. But we changed all that! Ahhhhh.

Bedroom Before

They loved their furniture but wanted a more soothing, welcoming retreat. We painted the room a soft taupe and accented with beautiful creams, soft corals and elegant gold. The colors we chose were neutral so that, in a few years, by simply changing the bedding, they could give the room a completely different feel.

Now they have the glamorous and relaxing retreat they were dreaming about!

Sweet dreams!

Blue and White Bedroom Bliss

My client recently retired and moved to her dream home on the lake. She wants her bedroom to reflect the serenity and nature that surround her.  She loves antiques so I used an antique brass, patina on the mirror and curved lines on the furniture to give some old world charm. The color blue creates an atmosphere of introspection, security, trust and tranquility. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like my kind of retreat. Deep breaths, ahhhhhhhhh.

Toddler Bedroom: Just Add Robot

I have collected vintage (and vintage looking) robots for years. When the doctor said, “It’s a boy!” I knew his room would showcase my robots. Three years later he prefers I call them “his robots.” Tsk tsk. Wanting to avoid a theme room, I aimed for his room to be playful, colorful and full of fun and spunk, just like him!

You also may remember his first birthday. Obsessed? Nah. I’m just stating my point of view before he has a say. It’s called smart parenting, folks.

Wanted: Skyline View and Chic Interiors (sense of humor, a must)

I assisted behind the scenes with a photo shoot for Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams at the W Atlanta Downtown this week. The view was amazing outside and inside. Photos will appear in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and Jezebel.

If you see them you might even see yours truly. I’ll be playing the part of “blurry girl walking with glass in hand” or perhaps “blurry girl talking to man across the counter with dogs roaming about.” If there is a market for blurry modeling jobs, I think I may have a new career. I just hope my blurry passion comes through in print.

MG + BW furnishings are drool-worthy, all of them. The people are great too. Brian Waidelich (a.k.a. “blurry sophisticated man playing with dogs”) is the regional head dude (unofficial title) and is a lot of fun to hang out with. Here’s a sneak peek of our shoot with interiors photographer, Christina Wedge.

I adore this smooshy nosed dog collection by Georgia designer Sugarboo Designs for Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. Love love love.

This cow made photographer, Christina Wedge, very very happy on the day of our shoot. I love the way the neutral palette was hit in the gut with aqua accents. Nice.

Mission Style Bedroom Plan, eDesign

I’m working on a design for a bedroom that is 1100 miles away. This online ‘eDesign’ option is great for people who live far away and want to take their time implementing my plan. In this case, the total plan is 12 pages and includes room layouts, sketches, and a link for every piece pictured (and much more not pictured here). 

The sprawling mission style home is surrounded by woods and the homeowners desired a plan that brought the outdoors in, was warm and inviting but with great style. They had a mission style sleigh bed and 2 mission dressers to work with when we started. I’m very happy with how it is coming together!
