Design Board for a Girl’s Room

It’s Friday!!!!   I’m running behind on everything in life and I can fully place blame on the addictive show “Making a Murderer”.  Ever heard of it?  Right, at least several times a day I hear someone talking about it, it’s that good.   My friend just sent me this image, which I thought to be hilariously accurate: making a murderer

I was definitely questioning who I was as I was yelling at the TV and my husband at the end of the show.   I still don’t know exactly what I believe, it’s been an emotional roller coaster.

Ok, on to the point of this post, which has absolutely nothing to do with Making a Murderer.

Chris and I put together a design board for a girl’s room to give you guys an example of what we create for our clients.  This imaginary girl is in grade school, and we wanted to create a space that is youthful and fun, but will grow with her as she gets older.  The key with kids rooms is to get bigger furniture pieces that are more sophisticated and they will not quickly outgrow (ie giant firetruck bed).   We like to bring in the fun with accessories and smaller, less expensive pieces that can be switched out as they get older.

We started this board with a different bed, and then decided that the bed was not right, which meant that we had to change out everything else in the room.   The pieces all work together to create a sum that is greater than its parts, so if one thing changes, it throws off the balance.  We ended up with a totally different concept than what we started with!
