Our goal was to keep everything in this home white, light and bright. We had to show off the great spaces and keep the rooms as bright as possible.
Time to share some of sister Tara's Amazon selections. She is a great shopper so take note. I will eventually get these items in our SHOP but wanted to highlight some of her picks.
This is why we have fabulous staging furniture and accessories. She has her vision and the warehouse is full of it.
Let's get one thing straight: I shot these photos on my iphone so they are not going to wow you but the room change may.
My daughter went off to college so it was time to create a more grown up beautiful room for her return. It only took me a week to complete. Here is how it worked:
I have been following Tuft and Needle mattress company for a couple of years. They sell 1 mattress in several sizes. The Queen is about $550. I tried it out, my nephew tried it and now my daughter. We are all fans. You do not need to pay big prices for a mattress anymore. I purchased mine from Amazon for a handful of reasons. Purchase here. Ships in a box, open, cut plastic and it expands. PRESTO!
The makeover cost me about $1400.00. That is with the mattress, hiring a painter, the paint, bedding, and accessories. No furniture. Everything was Home Goods, Target and Amazon. The furniture: bed (also sold on Amazon) and dresser and mirror are Ikea.
The original room was Carrie's (Sex in the City) apartment color-left image. My youngest is not a fan of feminine so this is what we agreed on (back in the day).
We are adding a collection of black and whites on the wall and I think that completes the look.
1. JEWEL TONES
2. KITCHEN COLOR
4. BLACK AND WHITE
5. NATURAL ACCENTS
6. WOVEN TEXTURES
7. VINTAGE LIGHTING
It appears to me that just about anything goes for 2018! There is something for everyone in this list. Enjoy freshening and reinventing your spaces!
This is a big deal for us. Target is debuting their new in-house label online. Project 62! It has Target's affordable vision with ever-so-trendy pieces. No excuses, this is an easy way to freshen up your space. Click on the thumb nails to start shopping.
We asked our shopping Guru, my sister, to gives us a handful of her favorites.
When I step back and look at all the art, furnishings and accessories that it takes to put together a great looking room I am blown away with all the labor involved to create it. And to think my sister had to shop for just about all of it! We get to walk into a warehouse with everything in it's department and just pick and choose what we want. Sister Extraordinaire has to actually purchase each item. I am exhausted just thinking about it!
Here are a few rooms in a hip condo that we staged in South Seattle. And all you have to do is click to get the look! How easy is that?!
We love the freshness and simplicity of a Matelesse Coverlet. Each summer, my master bedroom gets this crisp look. Often we are asked where we shop for our staging pieces. Here are a few connections for the Matelasse Coverlet. Click on the links below the photos and start shopping!
I started with flowers...
Soft, lovely and fresh looking flowers are a must. Available right here.
Also the rage is the upholstered headboard here. Check out the lamps on the nightstands. Tweet Tweet.
A pale pink skirted chair to soften the modern vanity. Skirted chair here.
I kind of like the vanity being the only edgy thing in the room. Here.
A couple of these chairs with the blue floral pillows and you are good! Chairs here.
Throw pillow here.
