Guest Room does double duty as closet

Wouldn't we all love to walk into a room and its actually a closet. That is all the rage right now (so I'm hearing anyway). But what if  you need that room for other purposes as well. Well... that was just the case here. In this E Design the client wanted to acquire more closet space. but needed the room to also serve as a guest room whenever they had company. So here's the Plan : use Ikea Pax closets along one wall. opposite that wall the lovely RH bed. Bookcases flanking the bed and add sconces on each side (Ikea), beautiful lighting, hardwood flooring, cute rug, mongolian lamb pillows, you  get the picture. Here's what I'm suggesting . Lets see where it ends up.
The room actually has only two useable walls. One the bed will be on. One is a wall of windows(So beautiful curtains a must) One the Pax system will be on.and one is the existing closet that is mirrored so why not use the overlay system on it.
The bed will be upholstered in a grey velvet.
 And the flat screen will be installed inside the Pax closet.
Can't wait to see the finished product.

Remember to live Life beautifully!

What I'm Loving Right Now

Hey All! it's been a while. The past few weeks I have been working on some projects.  In doing so I have come across a few things that I'm loving right now. First off, I was so happy to see that Ralph Lauren Paints have made a return to Home Depot. I have always enjoyed using his paints. (my dining room is painted in one of  the RL metallics , I've used his suede application and the denim treatment in navy and loved it as well.

I'm also loving the new re-positional wall paper available at Target by Devine Color. The paper comes in several colors and patterns. While in Florida this past week helping a friend with a temporary rental for the winter months I thought why not use it to wallpaper her foyer, since we can't paint or use pasted wallpaper. We decided on the linen weave pattern that looks like it has metallic going thru it.
The application was very easy. Kinda reminded me of contact paper. The pattern is nice, went up very easy and looks great. A few times I had to reposition the paper but it was literally so easy. and what a transformation! what once was bare white apartment walls, were now given some depth
 and presence. I've been thinking of other ways it could be used. It's so easy you could actually cut it up to create your own design instead doing an entire wall. Here's a peek before:
 During and After:
I would really love it if we could paint the door and that vent. Maybe beef up the trim. But that's a big fat NO!

The foyer is octagonally shaped so we purchased a large rug and then used a box cutter to cut it into the perfect octagonal shape for the foyer. the light fixture is actually a shade from Ikea

that we placed over the existing lift fixture. Yes there are ways to create comfortable spaces in creative ways on a tight  budget.
On another note  I also spent some time in St. Louis  and while there was able to attend the Hot air balloon glow event isn't this just beautiful
Live A Beautiful Life!
