“Cher’s main thrill in life is a makeover. It gives her a sense of control in a world full of chaos.”
Lauren emailed me back in March to help them with their master bedroom. They were adhering to a tighter budget because they had just splurged on this amazing Ethan Allen bed.
And, as it turns out though I didn’t know it then, they were expecting a little nugget soon as well.
I think this board demonstrates the high/low…splurge on investment pieces, save on others thing I was talking about on Monday. The bed is a forever piece. The bedding is really good too- as are the side lamps. The side tables are from west elm, and the bench at the end of the bed is from overstock. And this is what it looks like in real life:
I love how the space looks pretty and put together, but not overly designed. I don’t think it looks like “me”, I think it looks like them, and if I walked into this room I wouldn’t think “who is your designer?” I would think “y’all did a great job”.
But SHE went out and found this piece on The Craig. And painted it the color I suggested. Lookin’ real good, though I do think it could use the lamps I suggested to finish it off. That is the great thing about doing the boards though- you can do things at your own pace as funds and priorities and tastes align.
Beautiful family in their beautiful room.
Let’s give them a round of applause, shall we?
