I recently got to work with a fabulous e-design client who turned a barn built in 1810 into a home! I am so intrigued by that.
I love the beams and stone. It adds so much texture and architectural interest. Here is how the design plan is coming out.
Here is her master bedroom before. Not bad to start with.
- Bed and nightstands stay. Bed is actually iron! Sweet.
- Need sitting area by window.
- Bedding stays.
I worked with her existing wall color, but added color to the ceiling.
I created some drawings to approximate the changes so it’s easier to visualize the rough layout of the space.
Because I can only approximate things like pillows and chandeliers, I also provided her with this storyboard. It has the actual elements on it.
Across from the bed, on the wall is the console table (seen on the storyboard) with the map over it. Two mirrored stools sit below the fireplace.
The keys to this design were:
- Juxtaposing old and new to keep in sync with the bones of the house.
- A mix of materials and finishes.
- Adding softness with fabrics.
- Adding some feminine elements such as a chandelier to balance the masculine.
We are still tweaking things and will probably have one more iteration of the storyboard before things are finalized, but this is where we stand.
I can’t wait to see it come to life!
I also wanted to say a quick thank you to Andrea for the Versatile Blogger award!
