One summer ago, a friend of mine and her husband stepped into the office for a bedroom makeover. As I remember then, their major intention was to join the old balcony to the room. By the way, they were expecting their second daughter who was about to be born in a month and YES of course they were in a RUSH❗️
The initial plan was to get rid of the old balcony walls and windows and plan a bigger space. So, we decided to keep the flooring to save ourselves some time and money to splurge on the wallpaper and fabrics...
Another major concern was the poor organisation of their old wardrobe! Sliding doors were not practical for the working couple!Nothing was quite visible and morning dressing ritual was a burden !!!
Therefore, we designed an open walk in closet space for their individual needs.
After planning the fundamental pieces of the bedroom, we still had more space to play around with!Balcony had a nice view and nobody could resist sitting by those windows.SO, we designed a built in seating arrangement and had it custom made to fit our new space.Frankly, I believe the comfy window seat is the reason why the young couple spend so much time in their new bedroom😊
The old balcony floor had ceramics and no new hardwood floor would match the old one.
That is why, we went ahead and changed it with a wall to wall carpeting for a cosier feel.
As the couple desired to sleep facing the windows, we designed a double duty closet door as a bed headboard with MDF backing.And then, we dressed it with the cutest wallpaper which I really fell in love with😍 Seriously,the YELLOW in the paper was our sunny inspiration for the remaining selections of fabrics and accessories.
Despite the crazy humid and hot weather and strict working hours implied by the neighbors,we were lucky enough to finish every detail before the new member of the family arrived👏👏
