Please Note: These photos were taken before I started blogging, so the staging is not the best (and I know that!) I was just snapping "look what we accomplished photos". Plus I was exhausted,(2 sleepness nights on a futon) AND my fingers hurt from upholstering, and putting together an entire apartment full of furniture!!!!, It really is a miracle that I took photos at all! Oh, and did I mention this was all done right after the DC Snowmagedden??? That accounts for the white glare out of the window...all SNOW! 2 feet of snow everywhere!
As always, there are a few things I would change or move around, I don't think anything is ever REALLY finished...but I think an awesome result nontheless.
DRAB TO FAB!
Isn't that rug so gorgeous???. The turquoise, burnt orange, and brown...this set the tone for the whole design. Vintage, modern with contemporary twist, I THINK SO!
The orchid is a nice little bit of green, (I love orchids in any space, and contrary to popular belief they are not THAT hard to keep alive.) Every home needs a little bit of life, REAL flowers or plants are a necessity!
There are a couple of things that were not accomplished. I left these things up to my sis to finish. Including a stripe down the wall as you enter the apartment.
This project was accomplished by Erin on a rainy weekend day...and I have to say it does look great. The wall was such a blank expansive space, it ties it all together, infuses a bit of color without being too garish.
I have to say it was such a fun weekend, and if I could do this ALL the time I would be one happy mamma! I will have to work on that:)
The kitchen, eating area, and bath are for the next weekend in DCity...I CAN'T WAIT!
