One of the biggest changes in the Westlake Houseboat, was transforming the built-in office to a cozy bedroom for the client's daughter - that could also double as a guest room!Read More
Happy Monday friends!
I'm so sorry I've been MIA for awhile.. We've been very busy here at MAPLE & PLUM and I'm very excited to share what we've been up to! The Elegant Master Retreat is coming very soon! So in preparation I thought I'd share the mood board and inspiration for this project!
We took a very boring and beige bedroom and amped up the glam! I looked to Old Hollywood for inspiration - bright white, cool gray tones, and crystals everywhere! Sounds like a dream, doesn't it?
Lately I've been drawn to all things Teal. It seems to be the most versatile color of the moment. This blue-green hue pops against all sorts of materials, whether it be the soft grey of concrete or the deep dark brown of wood or leather. It pairs well with any shade of grey (which seems to be sticking around as the "it" color for interiors). Not to mention it mixes well with other pops of color including yellow, navy, and orange. Whether it's in deeper shades like "peacock", or lighter tones like "seafoam", this color is definitely one to think about adding to your decor. It's fresh vibe is a must as your new go-to accent color!
What do you think? Would you add this fun color to your interior??
The Sleep Centre was the last project I created while attending the Interior Design School. I wanted to update and put a fresh perspective on a clinic that performs overnight sleep assessments. I envisioned a space not only for observed sleep patterns but also for education, alternative therapies and physician visits. I wanted the space to feel calming - because we know all too well how many healthcare facilities are instant anxiety-inducers. The goal was to make the patient feel at ease from the moment they entered.
This mood board represented all the elements that I wanted to incorporate into my design; It had to feel calming, natural, organic, peaceful and tranquil.
Sleep is so important and these days it seems like people are having more and more problems getting the hours their body requires. I think the design our your bedroom can greatly impact our sleep. Wanna know more? Well stay tuned... I just might post some tips here real soon! ;)
Do you ever just wander around your house looking at what you have to work with? Sometimes you just need a little change? Perhaps you have a nightstand that looks a little tired, and in need of a fresh coat of paint. Or maybe you're holding onto something that is meaningful, but you don't know quite what to do with it.
I'm always looking for ways of re-creating what I already have - especially after sitting in front of HGTV for hours and then realizing that a complete destructive reno is not in the cards. Sometimes a quick update on an old favorite is enough to satisfy that creative craving deep inside.
We've all been there. We all have these objects in our house that are just sitting there; begging to be used, updated, or appreciated. It's not a new concept. It seems like everyone is DIY'ing in their own way these days - thanks to TV shows, websites and the glorious world of Pinterest. And why shouldn't we? It's an easy way to inject life into a new object, or to express ourselves in a different manner. Plus it's just downright FUN!
I thought I'd share a few of those gems that I've found around my house. I hope it inspires you to do the same!
Do you have any projects you've recently completed, or want to? Let me know, and maybe I can help motivate you to get 'er done!
