Soooo…I’m the new kid on the block …
a brand new player in this beautiful business of home decor…Newly minted entrepreneur…what an intimidating challenge! My website is finally up and running and I feel …so many things. First of all I feel like a new kid on the playground …terrified…excited to play…excited to meet new play mates…happy…a bit shy…This is an incredible challenge for me. I tried so many hats on, so many paths in my professional life…and the one that I’m most happy to walk is the one that allows me to bring beauty to a space…find the potential of a room and bring the best of it. At the end of the journey, I just want people to feel happy and excited about their homes/offices… cause that’s what makes me happy.
And now…I am excited and anxious to share my first project with you.
My first project was a bit challenging because of various reasons. One of the challenges was the fact that the place was a rental therefore more restrictions in terms of layout, paint , floors, allowed changes etc… Besides that, the layout of the place was very bizarre…so that called for various creative ways to dress a wall or fill in an empty space. The budget was also fairly limited. Considering that this is a rental and there was no point investing in major changes since becoming a home owner in the near future is a priority for the current tenants.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
So here’s the end result: a place with vibrant colours to compensate for the limited amount of light in the living room and work area (home office)…
…and soft colours for the bedroom with punches of colour to make it a bit more fun.
Elements of coastal style were incorporated via the colour scheme (neutrals, tints and shades of blue, yellow, orange) and the accessories (the lamps, the framed prints, rope etc).
So don’t be shy about criticism! It will only make me better.
