Monday Moodboard: Children’s Room

Boy’s Dino Bedroom

It is fun to design and decorate children’s rooms. You can go a little more themey than in the adult rooms. Dinosaurs, princesses, fairies, or pirates. Go wild when decorating your child’s room. That being said, while the ship or pumpkin carriage beds looks fantastic, the child will not always be 4, so pick furniture that can grow from toddler to teen. Accessories, decor and paint are where you can incorporate the theme of the room. The decorative items are more practical to change when the child outgrows the Spiderman phase.

In this young boy’s room a dinosaur theme was used. The color navy was used as the main color in the room, which can grow with the child as it not too childish or trendy.  The bedding is in the navy and grey so it can be used long after the dinosuar phase is gone. Using furniture and bedding that is not themed is also a money saver. Spend the room budget on the furniture and other pieces that make up the bones of the room. Just use themed items on pictures, lamps, pillows, and other decorative accents.

Monday Moodboard: Eclectic Studio

A moodboard for an eclectic studio

The current project I am working on is a studio apartment in LA. It has a nice feature in a fireplace, but the layout of the space makes it difficult to utilize the fireplace. So the challenge for this small space is  to make the fireplace more than a walk through space. Here are the current selections for this space.

I will be posting the final design when it is complete.

Car Inspired Condo Decorating Part II

Car Inspired Decorating

In the previous Wednesday’s post, I showed you the public rooms in a condo concept project. This time, I am going to show the bedrooms and bathrooms. The car inspired decorating continues, but the color scheme changes.

In the main spaces, I used a fire inspired color  palette, in the private space I chose to go with a cooler,more calming colors. The master suite and guest/office room are in blues. The main bathroom is a combination of the blue and fire-inspired color palettes.

Car Inpired Condo Concept Bedrooms and bath

The car theme is still used,as you can see in the desk for the office. The desk is the front end of a Camaro, maybe taking the car theme a little far, but so cool! In the bedroom the car theme is subtle with lampshades that are reminecient of air filters. Of course, there is still lots of chrome and metal touches. The master bath is where I deviated from the car theme and created a slick and shiny mirror and black bath, with just a hint of the blue color in the tile.

The main bath is a combination of the two color ways I used in the condo. There is the rust colored tiles for floor and walls that pick up the fire color palette and the cool misty blue color from the cooler palette.

Be bold, be creative in your home. Make it a reflection of you.

Car Inspired Condo Decorating

Car Inspired Decorating

This is an old project, a concept for a masculine condo. I used cars and fire as inspiration for the decor and the color palette. There is lots of chrome, leather, and plenty of car inspired items. Oranges, yellows, and reds give the palette its fiery kick.

Without going overboard and making the whole condo car-themed I used a few car part furniture items, any other decor was reminiscent of car accessories. Notice the ceiling light fixture for the kitchen, it looks similar to an air filter.

In the  dining room concept, the car inspired decor is the pictures and the chandelier, which looks like the  taillights of a 50’s car. The porch carries on the fire inspired color palette and the homage to cars is the rusted metal artwork. I absolutely love the stacking outdoor table and chairs.

Next week  I will post the bedroom and bathroom concepts that went  along with this condo project. It still  has the car theme, but I went for a cooler color palette.

Glamorous Tiny Studio Apartment

On this project, my client had just moved into a very small studio apartment. She had already purchased a full-size bed, a pub table, and a sofa and needed help with adding a desk and television stand to the cozy space. Floor space is valuable real estate in such a small apartment so we came up with the solution to have a floating desk and media shelf that did not intrude too far into the room. The initial moodboard can be seen here.

 

 

There was a definite lack of lighting. The only light in the apartment was from the window. There were no ceiling lights and my client had added a few small table lamps to get by. Adding a small chandelier over the loveseat, a wall sconce near the desk, and her table lamps provided ample lighting for task and general needs.Floating Desk and shelf for a small studio apartment

 

Additional suggestions for the floating desk and media wall was a couple of wall organizers for mail and files.Bed and sofa in a tiny glam studio apartment

 

Mirrors behind the lamps will reflect light plus mirrors always give the illusion of more space than there is, which is a wonderful trick for small spaces.
