My friend, Chi, grew up in this room. She moved out for college, and when she came back, the room seemed to need a facelift more than ever. The dingy paint with the poor lighting made the room unbearably drab. The lack of storage made it impossible to maintain a tidy space. Fortunately, her room had great bones with plenty of wall space and nice hardwood floors. After a couple weeks of careful planning and with a little help from Chi, and I re-vamped this room in 2 days.
I completely re-oriented her furniture. We made way for a larger bed, moved the desk out of view from the doorway, and brought in plenty of storage.
Designing for Chi was a breeze because we have really similar taste. We're partial to cool, soothing colors, timeless furniture pieces, and a bit of glamour.
We painted every surface in her room, from the walls, to the ceiling, to the doors and moulding. The paint alone made it look and feel like a completely different room.
She works at a hospital and prefers to have different areas to keep clothes for work so I got her this HUGE "Hemnes" wardrobe from IKEA.
I think every bedroom needs a chandelier. They're not only fancy, but they give off a ton of light. I hooked this one up to a dimmer.
I made this headboard and upholstered it with a beautiful gray curtain panel.
Ultra organized home offices are a passion of mine.
That's my Mom's best friend!
Chi's cat, cleverly named Kitty. :)
