Timeless Nursery

Sarah filled this sophisticated nursery with hues of blue and jolts of orange. The only baby furniture in the space is the crib and changing table, allowing the rest of the furniture to grow with baby. The painted striped wall reinforces the color scheme and anchors the framed white wall art. Sarah dressed up the bold, custom drapes with ball fringe, which acts as a linking element between the striped wall and patterned ceiling.

Maximizing Storage

Sarah kept the foundation of this kitchen untouched, but included triple the storage space for a cool and efficient look. The space may be small, but a peninsula gives extra storage and counter space. The pops of green and silver bring life and personality to the space, while the porcelain floor tile resembles concrete for an industrial yet comfortable look. Adding a few pot lights coupled with vintage pendants is a budget-friendly way to update the lighting.

Industrial Coziness

The assortment of fabrics in this industrial bedroom brings warmth and personality to the space. Sarah combined industrial and fine elements equally so nothing looks out of place. The dragon fabric on the headboard and footboard set the tone for the room, and Sarah sprinkled patterns with the same color scheme throughout the space for a look that flows smoothly. Family heirlooms add a cozy touch to the space.

A Soothing Spot

Sarah created an oasis of calm in this elegant bathroom with delicate apricot details, vintage furniture and a freestanding tub. The metal-frame shower enclosure gives the space a retro vibe, while the vanity area frees up the main space in the bathroom and offers a seating option. The decorative plumbing fixtures act as the jewelry and finishing touch to the space.
