Weekend Redo: Bedrooms

This weekend for me was all about striking a balance between work and repose. At home, I am enjoying snoozing away in my new cotton paisley block print bedding that I found at West Elm’s Dash for Design sale! If you haven’t gone yet, you should! They have deals on all kinds of furnishings from their signature mini desks to lacquer trays.

This July, in the spirit of transformation, I plan to repaint our existing wood bed frame. Replace that functional, yet tacky bedside lamp and finish the bedroom by painting the walls and or hanging new colorful curtains. What color would you like to see this bedframe? The dresser in the room is a dark walnut but other than that could become anything really.

Over at our client’s house, the girls’ rooms¬†Metamorphosis continues with installation of a photo wall, coconut lamp, modern nightstand, and beginning layers of the bedding.

In Mia’s room we have assembled her Parson’s Desk, added simple shelving, a lacquer tray for organizing papers, and a punchy Thalya chair by Kartell.

In a day or two this brilliant lamp will be hung from the center of the lofted ceilings. In it’s current state, I think it resembles an art installation, but it’s going to be so fantastic!

This was the last quiet moment I had in Echo Park captured by Ashish.

yup, that’s me…feeling a real sense of peace.

Mia’s Room Inspiration

I have to admit designing a room for a pre-teen girl is a fun and awesome challenge. Mia is a creative girl and has tons of great ideas that she’d like to incorporate into her teen dream room. She loves purples, hates pink and has lots of cool ideas for lighting. So far we’ve have been through a series of inspirational pics and products still searching for the perfect fit.

You may remember the bed round-up from a month ago. Well, who knew the Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel only carry queen sizes and up! Now I do.

Luckily, Annie, my project partner stumbled upon this awesome platform bed at Brocade Home.

We are seriously considering it, but waiting for Mia to give the ultimate thumbs up!

Here is what Annie came up with. I love the faux leather silver cubes from Brocade Home and I think Mia will too! Mia and her mom, Veronica spotted this hip black and white Mandala bedding at CB2 and I think it could be the perfect design solution.

As a design alternative I came up with a brighter board for us to look at and perhaps pull other products that Mia loves. The white chest from PB teen is a must for her bean bag seating area, along with the black linen dress form that she can attire in the mornings while picking out clothes for school.

Now, we know that pink can be a bit girly, but this ruffle bedding also comes in Celery green and Gray! We love the way the pink is paired with yellow, red, and orange, for a splash of sunshine indoors. The rug is optional but does tie together the room nicely. We are also considering a shag rug, if anyone knows of a colorful shag rug retailer please do share! Finally, the lace tower at left will make space for Mia’s blossoming shoe collection. Really, what more could a girl ask for?

I am so excited to get the shopping underway this month. We promise to share the final products in July, while they are installed.
