What makes a project successful are the creative touches that go into each and every detail. These personal touches are crafted around the unique and individual tastes of each client. For Amanda, small touches were created specifically in tune with how she would be living in her space. A favorite detail is the ribbon on her storage cubbies designed to be used as “hardware pulls” All it took was some thinking outside of the box, ribbon tied in a loop and decorative beads as a final touch. Cute and functional.
Another favorite detail of mine was her fish bowl. Chico, being no ordinary fish, could not be left in his old mundane bowl. Instead his new home is a reflection of Amanda’s new room. Brightly colored sand and rocks coordinates with accent colors used throughout the space. A new large shell provides shelter from his spotlight.
To add a decorative and playful touch a flurry of fire flies are placed in a swarming fashion up and around the clock, providing movement along the staircase.
One of the most important and functional touches was adding storage drawers in what used to be a closed up staircase base. Finding space for storage in this bedroom was key, as no closet space previously existed in the room. Utilizing wasted space kept the room with ample space for her drum set and new larger bed and wardrobe systems.
