Here’s a sneak peek of a new space I’ve recently designed.
It’s a loft/mezzanine room that overlooks the living room of a house in Mount Washington – you climb 45 stairs (I counted) to get to the home so it’s like a little treehouse.
The homeowner is an older woman with a great collection of vintage and new pieces that just needed to be tied together. It’s a bonus room in the home, with french doors opening onto a nice balcony, and no real designated purpose. To reach it you have to climb a set of stairs that are almost vertical so getting large items up is tricky (no wonder the homeowner stays so fit with all this stair climbing).
In the bottom left of the picture above, you can see the opening where you climb up from the room below.
I thought I was going to paper the wall behind the bed with a patchwork of wallpaper scraps. It ended up not working out. Instead I did this.
Chalkboard paint up to where the ceiling starts. I added a fifth floral “painting” by drawing one in chalk. I like odd numbers of things and four paintings wasn’t looking right.
On the opposite wall, I re-painted her white dressing table, made a little patchwork wall covering and hung some handmade bunting.
It’s a very cool space, and lovely when the french doors are open.
I’m eventually doing the rest of this house – those yellow walls are going…
