A little over a year ago, I introduced a new service called One Day Design Plus. It was born out of a need to provide design assistance to those needing a little help pulling things together. Most of my One Day Design clients have already purchased furniture, painted and even gotten a start on decorating their space. However, they've usually stalled shortly thereafter and need a little help pulling together a cohesive and finished look. That's exactly what my recent One Day Design Plus clients needed.
Their master bedroom was in need of those finishing touches that would make it into the tranquil retreat they desired. They'd already selected a beautiful paint color called Silver Sage by Restoration Hardware, a lovely muted gray green.
The furniture was substantial but unassuming and definitely worth keeping. We pulled together a quick mood board and agreed on the design direction for the space.
The biggest challenge was the large window nook. We needed to fill it with seating but for an ample space like this one, a chair and ottoman was just not going to do.
Our first thought was two chaise lounge chairs, but they proved illusive.
So, we ended up with an awesome daybed. I stumbled upon this beauty and knew it would be PERFECT!
I was right! Let's take a look at a few before and afters, shall we? (Excuse my sad photography.)
The original lamps were way too small for scale of the bed and nightstands and while the wedding photo was beautiful, the placement wasn't ideal. The room was also screaming for some softness, so we added silk panels and hotel bedding to add a bit of lushness.
The clients loved the idea of a retreat, but didn't want the space to feel like their parent's bedroom. We kept it modern with the addition of a few pieces of abstract art.
Despite my lackluster photography, this bedroom turned out great. They couldn't have been happier and that's what matters most. Start to finish, this project was completed in just two and a half weeks and on a pretty modest budget. I'm constantly amazed by the impact that just a few key elements can have on the look and feel of a space.

Have a great week!
