When I asked Emily to describe her personal style, this is what she said, "Comfy... Lake Cottage Wanna Be" She doesn't want her home to look like it came out of a catalog. She likes to mix and match unique, re-purposed pieces. She also wants people to be comfortable when they come over, and not worry about taking off their shoes or spilling on furniture. It's all about kicking back with a glass of wine and snuggling in for good conversation.
That's what will make this series SO much fun! We get to get creative, paint, thrift and work on a boatload of new DIY projects! And of course, we will be tossing organizing ideas into the mix as well!
We decided to start on her guest bedroom/bathroom combination space.
And get this. We are going to attempt to tackle both spaces on a total budget of $300! Talk about design on a dime stuff here!
We have a great blank slate to play with!
We hope to address everything from lighting to textiles and accessories. Even a headboard! It's not going to be easy, but we are up for the $300 challenge!
First round of business, selecting some new lights in the bathroom to replace these:
Here are a couple of styles I had in mind:
This is where you come in! Leave a comment on this post with which number you would love to see in her new space!
Voting goes from now through this Thursday, 3/1.
We will be sure to share before and after pictures, project updates, cost breakdowns and sources as we begin working on the two rooms, so stay tuned!
