A Little Treat in my Inbox

I have been doing mood boards for clients for just under two years now and at the end of every mood board I say, “I’d love to see how the space comes together.  Feel free to send pics!”  And, wouldn’t you know it, someone finally did!!  I actually went to high school with Jessica, and it was so fun helping her and her new husband, Pierce, put together their master bedroom.
Here are the before photos:

Jess had a budget of around $500-$700 and wanted it to feel cozy and romantic.  So I whipped up (I say that casually–these things I invest a lot of time in and I usually end up wanting to redecorate after I’m done) this mood board for the newlyweds:

Here’s how it breaks down (the abridged version):

1. (Benjamin Moore’s Richmond Gray)
2. A black-brown, versatile, affordable bed.  
3. Crisp, white bedding

11. Mirror
Pierce and Jess did a great job pulling the room together!! Here’s what she had to say,

So I FINALLY took pics of the finished room, mainly because I finally hung the lamps yesterday! They sat in boxes forever. Sorry the pics are a little grainy, I took them on my phone so the quality is kinda ehh. Don’t mind the cat chillin’ in the pics, he’s a camera ham.

I can’t thank you enough for your design with our room! We had a blast painting and redecorating, and now love coming up to this space. Also, I am now and forever a Benny Moore pain fan, that stuff is incredible, I feel like we could have put one coat up and been done!

Thanks a million! We couldn’t have done this without your design! :) Happy New Year!

Check it out:

It’s true.  Their cat loves the camera. And the camera loves him.
Great job putting your own touch into the space.  I especially love the art you chose for behind the television, “and if the music is good, you dance.” Love that.  The music must be good often while I am cleaning the kitchen. I mean…

    Haha, I always ask clients to send me photos of their pet portraits with the pets, and every once in a great while… they do! And it makes my whole day.

    Also, Steelers fans, yay!

    (And I love that dresser from the inspiration photo!)

      Kim! Of course they are Steelers fans–I was born and raised in Pittsburgh! (Went to high school with this girl) Every time I see a “Go Pens” from you, I mean to tell you that.

      WHAT! Oh my goodness. Soul mates. You and me.

  • It must be so nice to see a mood board that you created come to life and then to see the other personal touches they add! Can’t wait to get a design job and do this for a living!
