Drab to FAB!

I know, I KNOW.... you have waited long enough.   Drumroll please.....My dear friends, here is the Drab to Fab Studio in DCity!

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.


 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!
