#JKID Project | Bachelor Pad | The RemixMonday, September 22, 2014
My personal design motto is to ALWAYS and ONLY buy what you loveloveLOVE! That way, in case you move, as expected in any course of life, your favorite belongings will make that transition with you and grow in the space as much as you have. No more throwing out cheap furniture that can’t make the cut. No more attempting to make pieces work that you clearly don’t have a connection with. It’s ALL about making thoughtful choices when you’re shopping to reflect not only where you are, but where you envision yourself going.
Case in point: My former bachelor client (now en-fianced woohooooo!) moved out of his one-bedroom loft to a 2-bedroom apartment with the soon to be missus. What we needed was a newly refreshed space that not only showcased his prized possessions from the previous loft but improved to now incorporate the Mrs.’ style as well.
Well, here is the new space, upcycled with original pieces and remixed to incorporate a more sophisticated and elegant direction, courtesy of life’s many curveballs.
The mood: Urban modern meets laid-back luxe
The materials: Mixed woods, iron, glass, and velvet
What I love most about the new space is how light and airy it feels with previous dark and moody elements. We were able to achieve that with light gray walls, sheer drapery, and pops of color layered over natural textures of rich leathers and a variety of wood finishes.
What was once a complete man-cave now becomes a modern blend of masculine objects with a feminine touch, the yin-yang environment every couple hopes to achieve with the combination of mixed and matched décor.
What do you think of the space?
It's the LAST day of summer lovies!
Hope y'all go out with a colorful bang!
