I hope you’ve been enjoying some of the spectacular weather that has been happening. Makes it really hard to spend the day at the computer, but I may just be bringing it out on the deck. It has sure been a busy few weeks here. I’ve just finished a guest room mood board for a client. Keeping in mind that we wanted to stay on a tight budget for this basement guest room, with a light and fresh beachy feel, here is the mood board.
The background colour is the room’s current colour – Benjamin Moore’s – Collingwood OC-28. And I’ve suggested painting the existing unmatching wood side tables in New Hope Gray 2130-50. A sheer pretty roll up blind for the tiny window is perfect to let the light in. A soft upholstered headboard in a linen fabric keeps the bed looking fresh and clean and works well with the existing soft blue/gray tone on tone paisley bedding. A mirror in a fun shape and a simple bright white dresser are perfect for storage needs and a graphic striped runner completes the beachy feel.
I’m also working on a client’s family room that is very long and narrow. With dimensions of 23′ x 9′, it’s a tricky one. I’m loving the suggestions found on Pinterest, check out my Long Narrow Rooms board to see some of the inspiration photos I’ve collected.
Also on my desk, is the finishing touches to a client’s living and dining room that is all things minimal and modern, oh yes…and with lots of Indian touches and style. Having lots of brilliantly coloured artwork to play with makes me a happy designer 🙂
And we also been having some fun with the cottage renovations, the sunroom roof was replaced and some skylights removed at the same time. Lots of mess, but heaven knowing we will not have any more water pouring into it, when it rains heavily. And we will be replacing some tile flooring in there as well, stay tuned for a tile repair that will look like an entrance rug…fingers crossed….
Hubby is also in the process of making a fire table for the cottage deck. Lots of stone and concrete bought for it and here’s hoping he has some time in the near future to actually get it finished. I’m looking forward to leisurely sitting around the fire with a glass of wine while enjoying the river view. Here’s our inspiration –
And in anticipation of having a beautiful fire table to sit at, I’ve ordered some outdoor fabrics to make some cosy pillows for our rather hard wood chairs.
Well, you’re all caught up now, on what I’ve been up too. How’s your summer going so far?
