I first met with them this past summer, just before they moved to their new place. We went through the house and took inventory of what they would like to keep and what would need to go. This was not an easy move for my clients because this was the home where they had raised their children, and where many fond memories had been made.
I felt my main goal was to make this new place feel like home to them! I wanted to give them a place where they would look forward to coming home each day! In the end, I believe they would say we accomplished that goal!
|This is how the room looked when I saw it for the first time.|
|We used the client's beds, and we had the desk and upper cabinets built in for needed storage|
|This small sectional from Bassett was the perfect solution for this small space. The ottoman provides some extra storage. The beds|
are a cozy place for sleepovers. The large world map is from Ikea.
|This corner would become the play area/TV viewing area.|
|There are a few details that had not been completed when this photo was taken. We had not hung the cork boards or added the hardware to the cabinets. Notice the little dorm fridge? What a fun space!|
|We added some play clothes to the coat rack that included a fireman's jacket and some boots!|
The room has ended up being such a fun, happy space that the grandparents are reporting that they find themselves spending a lot of time up here watching TV, even when the grandkids are not there!
