Good news for me - I thought this was only going to last a week but It looks like it is going to be two. We still have a bunch of bedrooms and bathrooms and I just found the photos of how the previous owners decorated it. When you see them You will understand why we got such a good deal. If you click on each picture you will get a much better view.
Did You notice the dark floors - Changing them to maple changed the entire apartment. Plus I added Moldings everywhere completely changing the entire space.
The console and Mirror were designed by Matthew Suddock of M Designs and Made by PDI. The Perfect gray paint (Benjamin More Steel Wool) was suggested by the lovely David Jimenez. For all paint colors click here. The owl umbrella stand is from Pieces The chandelier got cut off but is by Crate and Barrel
True or False - This is the ugliest bookcase ever made - TRUE!
For the most disorganized girl on the planet - this has truly saved me. It is like having a little slice of New Jersey in Manhattan. Designed and made by Custom Resource. The bottom has individual doors so we all throw our shoes in there. The the baskets were made out of Chinese newspaper and I bought them from the container store. The little chalk boards are from Pottery Barn Kids and I initialled them so everyone could put their own junk inside. They are stuffed with shin guards and gloves. And lastly and my favorite - The fabric is by Quadrille on the bench - I love it and covered it with fabrite so when some kid puts his dirty cleats on top I won't cry.
The previous owners used this area to run their dog around - My kids play hockey here.
Thanks to ilevel - the ultimate resource these photos have that Wabi Sabi feel! I painted it all white to give it a gallery like feel but oh how I wish it was covered in navy and white zebra wallpaper - my husband isn't ready for that just yet.
