Master Bedroom Project Board

Here’s how I decided to use these fabrics I posted about yesterday.  The latice fabric was used to cover a modern wingback chair, the creme linen for the upholstered headboard with nailhead trim, the brown & creme striped linen for 2 x-stools at the foot of the bed, and the paisley was used for custom drapery (forgive my rendering, but believe me when I say that it’s much better than my last one).  These boards may look simple, but they require a fair bit of time when done correctly.  In addition to carefully matting each item, we also have to create specification notebooks full of scale drawings, furniture overlays, schematic plans, product specs and client details (statements, concepts, & synopses).   Here’s a peak at mine:

While this class has been a lot of work, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every minute.  I originally began exploring interior design programs because I wanted to fill the gap between what I knew and where I wanted to go.  I still have a few weeks before my first quarter is over, but I can truly say that I know it was the right decision for me.  I finally feel energized and excited about what I’m doing, and I know all of my hard work won’t be going to waste.  It’s safe to say that I’m really enjoying these design board projects.

    Your board looks great!! Those presentation boards always take FOREVER so I feel your pain. I understand now why top designers hire other people to do it! 😉

    Dayka this is beautiful! I’m loving the modernized traditional feel of the space (is that even a description?). And brass is my new favorite finish, so I totally love the swing arm lamps and curtain rods!

    I wish this plan could be used for my room!

    Have a great week hun!

    Great job! You are going to make an excellent designer! Loving the chest. And the binder is beautiful. Ah-hem, I could use a refresher apparently because I’m lacking in this department…..can you say jaded, and maybe lazy? Hahaha!
    So glad to know you are feeling better, but seeing my great finds from the thrift store have been known to cure the blind! Hahaha
