I recently tackled my first decorating task for a person outside my family…you see, I’ve helped with my sisters’ room here and there but I don’t know if that fully counts (they kind of have to like what I do, right?!). I’ve mentioned this before but if you’re new to the blog, it might be new information for you, my day job is a specialty hairstylist for a special event and wedding company. This room belongs to one of my hair clients turned home décor client. It was my first go at re-doing a room start to finish and let me tell you, homes are much, MUCH different than heads of hair. When I style someone’s hair, I immensely care about their level of satisfaction but at the end of the day, it’s a hairstyle that they can wash out. When it comes to a room in someone’s home, there’s really no quick fix in getting things back to the way they were before I stepped in.
So, even though my nerves were definitely setting in while putting this room together, I think the result came out even better than I expected. My client wanted to lighten up the space and take it from dark and bare to light and homey…hope you enjoy!
Below is the before and after…
