Today I kick off a small decorating series: Apartment therapy. My bathroom remodeling series has been wildly popular amongst my readers, however many readers live in temporary spaces. I recently started working with a gal, Mrs M, who comes to Tennessee for work. She leased a beautiful apartment near my office and has hired me to be of assistance.
We will first start on the bedroom. Her bed is an antique made for mattresses that used to be much smaller. The bed height with a modern day mattress measures at 54″…..it’s a bit too tall. With nothing else in the room it looks unbalanced and disproportionate. We will address that with large nightstands, and add some color to the bed to draw the eye away from the big elephant in the room. Another issue I will address is her lighting. The lamps she has chosen are beautiful but not right for this room. She wants a clean contemporary feel, but these are a bit extreme. I plan on adding something with a bit of color, more bulk and a little less whispy feeling.
She currently has no seating in the room . It is always nice to have a chair in the room to read a book or throw on some shoes. Tune in next week and I will give you a sneak peek at the presentation process and ideas I plan to share with her.
