The ability to be transported to a place where the distractions of the overwhelming pulls and tugs of everyday is vital for a balanced mind and body. And our home and environment is an essential part of that transformation. This room renovation, which came together in about 4-weeks, used readily available furniture, bedding, and accessories to create a comforting retreat.
I incorporated a personal gallery of recent travels and adhered to a color scheme reminiscent of the natural world. Water, wood, and the sun’s rays are the primary influences. The room promotes relaxation utilizing these elements.
Just like the world today, design can get a little crazy and complicated – I prefer to keep it simple, fresh, comfy, and budget friendly.
My design process
I have been “pinning” all my ideas and sharing them with my client for our collective approval. Here’s the link to the board – it will give you a glimpse into the intention, focus and selections made. https://www.pinterest.com/aliceflint/ssbedroom/
Using Pinterest is one of my favorite ways to collect and share ideas with a client. We both get to post to the board and add our comments. And by editing and organizing the thoughts (pins), the vision of the room starts to reveal itself. Collaboration is an important part of my design process and results in a room that everyone feels great about.
***To be fair the BEFORE picture was taken when the room was filled with the contents of a dorm room. But you get the point.
