My First Client Project

This summer I had the pleasure of working on my first client design project. Kathy was looking to update her master bedroom and bathroom without undergoing a major renovation. I posted photos of the bathroom herebut today I thought I'd share some photos of the bedroom, as well as some updated bathroom photos.

This is the bedroom before...


And the bedroom after...

Kathy's favorite color is green, so we settled on Sherwin William's Hearts of Palm for the wall color.

We ordered beautiful monogrammed bed linens with green trim, and had a custom bolster pillow made.

Mirrored nightstands flank the bed, and are much more proportionate to the bed than the original tables.

We added a new mirror above the dresser, and we're still looking for the perfect lamps.

Kathy is done with the room for now, but we'll eventually add some artwork and, if I can convince her, a rug and bench at the end of the bed.

The bathroom started out like this...


Here it is now...

You can read about the changes we made to Kathy's master bathroom here.

I had so much fun working on Kathy's home project that I decided to become "official." I launched my little business, Chadwick Interiors, and I am enjoying helping others express their design style.

I hope you are all happy and healthy. I know I haven't been around much lately. I've just been spending  more time off the computer, enjoying quality time with my family. It's hard to convince kids to put down the electronics if mom is on her computer too much :)

Also, we've had a bit of excitement around here that's taking up A LOT of our time. I'll fill you in on that soon...
