MY BEDROOM MAKEOVER

before
after

i’ve been waiting so long to post this! happy to finally get to show you guys the transformation of my bedroom. i brought in victoria from sfgirlbybay to help me on this project, because she is SO GOOD AT IT. really, she’s an interior queen and i knew our aesthetics were in line. i feel like i know how to decide on what i like and don’t like, or style a smaller vignette…but when it comes to putting a whole room together, it just wasn’t happening for me.

we never put much effort into this room when we moved in, we just put a bunch of random things from our old loft in it and let it be. the space just felt so unfinished compared to our living room, and i really wanted to create a relaxing and ADULT bedroom to fit the style of the rest of the house. victoria helped bring the whole vision to life and i could not be more grateful! ps. i know the before shots aren’t perfect, but it actually is pretty accurate of how the room looked most days.

MAKE IT / 54

our white studio is such a great blank canvas. we were having an office party and wanted something super simple but impactful for the decorations. so why not fill the entire ceiling with colorful balloons? to add to the beauty, jesi added some pretty metallic brush strokes to random balloons, some gold and some copper. the studio felt like a dream and it was the perfect touch for the party.

all you need is some metallic paint & a brush, balloons, and a helium tank. loosely add paint strokes to the bottom of the balloon after they are blown up. we got our balloons here, they have such beautiful colors.

then we just tied them to a chair and let them dry before releasing them up with the rest.

a funny fact: you may notice i am wearing headphones below. ha. while i truly love balloons, i am SO afraid of them popping. so for this shoot we blasted loud music and i wore headphones for any casualties.

facing balloon fears…

this project came out so pretty! such a great way to add impact for not a lot of money.

8 FAVORITE PINS RIGHT NOW

I absolutely adore this vibrant still life trend.  I’ve seen it spread a lot across Pinterest. Ice cream, fruit, or a patterned outfit against a colorful seamless. It’s very graphic and bold. Are you into it? -stephanie
