When we first walked into this guest bedroom, we were met with a very outdated and sad space. There was a very large window, however it was covered up with old curtains that made the space feel cramped and dark. The cupboard space was large but unnecessary as this apartment would be a holiday home for the clients. Therefore we removed them to open up the room. The beige walls washed out the room and made it feel dull. We went in and completely transformed the space. We were, however, met with a real challenge of having to fit 4 people into the room to sleep. Our solution was to add in three single beds, and include a very nifty contraption. The ‘ottoman’ you see underneath the dressing table is in fact a fold out bed! This way, our clients and friends could all enjoy the space together.
The walls in the apartment were patched up and painted in a light, bright colour. The curtains were very quickly removed and replaced with gorgeous sheers and blockout. This made the room feel instantly brighter and bigger. The cupboards were redone and a new dressing table designed and fitted. The mirror also helps bounce the light around the space and make it feel larger. We found some beautiful artworks and tied in the custom scatter cushions. Therefore the space has a real beachy feeling to it, thanks to the use of light colours, ocean inspired artworks and white linen. Let’s not forget about that gorgeous ceiling fan!
