About time I posted some pics of our best renovation innovation yet!
I wrote about this a short while back for BrickUnderground.com, so just follow the link for some more info. Here, I wanted to share some “behind the scenes”: I wanted to share some of the inspirational images I used during my process of coming up with the whole concept and design of the room.This was a room by glamournest.com. So cozy and snug. I thought: a bit impractical, but boy they make that space earn its keep!
Really, all you need is a bit of comfort and prettiness and, above all, privacy. A separate space for sleeping and dressing. And maybe working. And reading. Perhaps meditating. And doing crosswords.
Here was another idea I loved: light and airiness through windows:
I also, for some odd reason, really loved the idea of having sidelites. You know, like they have for front doors.
So: Snug and comfy, light and airy, front-door-like. These were the thoughts behind creating a “room” (not legally a bedroom, since it’s under 80 square feet) that was only 57 inches wide (and about 11 feet long).
After stripping the windows and baseboards, we had a contractor come in and build us a wall. If you’d like to check out exactly how the experience went, please, please check out my column! Or, ask me anything here.
First, a quick look at how the room looked originally.
And a “before” pic. Though technically a “during” pic…
And the final result! Is that a thing of beauty or what?!
