Design Priorities

I recently wrapped up work on a multiroom project on Lake Wisconsin. Five Bedrooms. I have to say these homeowners had their priorities straight. After years of diy decorating for her the bedrooms of her five children, this mom decided it was her turn, finally! I have kids of my own, I know how easy it is to put yourself last. How easy it is for mom and dad’s room just to become a dumping zone. But I also know how vital it is to have a place me and hubby to rest and recharge, which is tough to do if you room has become the dumping zone. That’s why I was so excited about the project. My hope was not just to give them a nice space, it was to give them a retreat. a space friendly enough for Saturday morning snuggle with the kids, but beautiful enough that it could be a place for the adults to close the door every now and then to catch their breathe…a literal retreat! (let face it, we all need a place to be alone sometimes)

Take a look at this space before and after.
