Drafting Class: Color Board!

Today I turn in and present my color board that I've put together for "The Gray's Residence".  The project was to design and decorate a home for our "clients".   It was so much fun.  I'm definitely reassured that I love interior design!  They have a small house-- about 980 square feet.  They needed a den, master (with private bath), eating area, one and a half baths, and of course, a kitchen and family room. Here's what I came up with:

 It's an open concept home.  They like to entertain, so there is bar seating as well as a window bench and dining table in the far upper right hand corner.  The family room is below the kitchen and boasts a Jonathan Adler chevron rug, pottery barn couch and media center and an ottoman with storage.  The den is on the bottom left hand corner and features a double sided fireplace (into the family room), a large desk, seating, and bookshelves.  The master is in the upper left hand corner and features a french door out to the patio, multiple windows for ample lighting and a fun bedspread from Anthropologie that I rendered.  A simple home, but oddly enough, I've grown attached to the floor plan (: Here's how I decorated the space:


Family Room.  I went with a subtle gray tone with a purple undertone to it.  It's soothing and compliments the curtain fabric:


The yellow in the curtains made me think of some fun wall art we all know and love:

I also used a lamp that Kate, from Centsational Girl made:


Here's how it looks on my board with the labels:



Next is the Dining Room:


I found the chandelier in Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic book.  Fell in love with the second I saw it!  I found the rug on West Elm.

Here's what the window bench and table look like:



Now onto the Master Bedroom:

{This is a large view of the bedspread and color scheme.}


Here's how it looks on the board.  I made a sample of what the curtains would look like, lined with a strong black boarder at the bottom.  The turquoise on the walls will be timeless paired with the classic black and white.

Now for some wall art!  I just fell in love with my friend BreAnne's wedding photo's so I asked her if one of her pictures could be hung over the bed.  {In this case, we'll pretend the people in the pictures are the clients (: }

Here's the picture:

{Isn't it cute?! Go here to visit Ashley Maxwell's blog!}

And here's what I did with it:

{Just printed it out and made a small black frame for it.}

Another one of Jen's prints will be hung on the opposite wall.  This one is the love languages print (:

Here's the final product:


After my fingers being covered in glue and my wrist being super sore from cutting tiny pieces of mat-board, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and am actually very excited to present it tomorrow!  Hope you enjoyed a little project I've been working on all quarter in my drafting class.  

What are you up to on this Wednesday??

Love,
