Today I want to share with you a very fun interior design project I recently completed. I had the wonderful opportunity to give this women’s clothing boutique a dressing room make-over.
What made this project so fun for me (other than the fact that it’s women’s fashion!!) was the ability to really design how I like to, colorfully!!! Of course we had a limited budget, every project does, but it’s what you do with the dollars you have and relatively speaking this project had a lot of bang for our buck.
One of the least expensive ways to create drama and atmosphere is with paint. I’m so grateful that my clients had full trust in me when I showed them the bold color choices I had selected. The dark pink is Sherwin Williams 6854 Impatient Pink and the light pink SW 6581 Verbena Pink.
We all fell in love with the Petal Pusher wallpaper from Hygge and West but because the wallpaper is a little on the pricey side we only used it on the two largest focal walls and as a wainscot down the hall. In the other dressing rooms, there are a total of six, I painted the back wall with our dark pink and added artwork.
I’m so excited when I get an opportunity to also create the wall art for my interior design projects. In this case I wanted each room to have it’s own identity so I painted six different designer Purses with Peonies. (In my Shop soon!) That way the customers could choose if they wanted the “Kate” (Kate Spade) or the “Co Co” (Chanel) room, the “Louis” (Vuitton) or the “Stalla” (McCartney) room. I was told today that the customers really liked the idea.
One of the owners had requested a solid door so I replaced the existing saloon doors with a light-weight solid door and added MyOverlays in white to dress it up! I would like to add that the people at MyOverlays were incredibly wonderful to work with! I highly recommend their products. They customized these panels for me and I couldn't have been happier with the result.
Another one of my favorite tricks to dress up a plain mirror is to frame it out with a small crown molding. Just remember you will need to paint your molding on the front AND the back when you do this because the back will reflect in your mirror. My painter also painted the picture frames I found at Aaron Brothers in the same gold metallic paint so everything tied in together perfectly.
It was a lot of fun! I hope it brought a little color into your day and maybe a few resources and ideas you can use for yourself. Thank you for stopping bye and letting me share it with you!
