Cait Collins is a recently single mom who's starting anew so it's time for a new bedroom. The room is colorful, but it's no longer what the homeowner wants for her private space. Student designer Loren Jacobs is up for the challenge. Jacobs wants to transform Collins' bedroom from blah to a modern, sleek room with a garden theme. With the use of color and antique accents, as well as a garden arch transformed into a bed canopy.
Jacobs creates "Cait's Exotic Garden" in just two days and with $2,000. The room is now a tranquil oasis with subtle Oriental touches including the chosen fabrics and brass fireplace screen parts on the dresser sides.
The view to the door of the bedroom was of mirrored closet doors and a box that contained a new iron bed, neither of which are part of student designer Loren Jacobs' design plan.
A new dresser, framed scarves, new bifold closet doors and an antique chandelier pull this side of the room together, making it nice whether coming or going.
