Client Update: Colorful Apartment

A few months ago I showed you a client's e-design I had been working on and it was so fun to hear your feedback! Kristina, my adorable client, is a college senior at my alma mater, Seattle Pacific University. I was thrilled to help her with her first apartment, so you can imagine my excitement when I received a few sneak peek progress photos of the design. It's coming along quite nicely I must say. To refresh your memory, here was the living room design: 

Here is the "progress" entry and living room rug:

My crafty client found this dresser and gave it a fresh coat of paint, then hung the mirror above it, as seen in my design. I think it creates the perfect entryway.  Now here's the bedroom and bathroom design:

And here's the bedroom progress:

I just can't get over these adorable polka dots for the wall. TOO CUTE. And especially perfect for a college apartment that you can't paint. How's that for some renters/apartment dwellers decorating?! I love every ounce.  The living room is going to be equally as adorable, as Kristina just put together a great entertainment center on the TV wall. I can't wait to show you more! Thank you for sharing, Kristina!

Enjoy your Thursday!

  1. Looking good. Love the gold polka dots!

  2. Michaela, you're amazing (obviously). I've seen those gold polka dots in a few different places and they are such a sweet (and super easy) touch to make a room perfectly feminine and lovely!

  3. Looking SO good! I love the polka dots! I wanted to do that in our bedroom but it was a little to girly for Jesse's tastes :/

  4. This is so awesome! How fun for her to be able to implement your designs on her own. Are the gold polka dots just wall decals? Do share the secret! :)

  8. I love this design, I need you to come to Portland and decorate my place! :) I would be all about doing a gold polka dot wall...but it's a little too girly for Cam's tastes unfortunately so I think that idea is out for now! xoxo

  9. I love it! The bedroom is especially cute. I will have to keep those wall dots in mind for when I get an apartment senior yet!


  10. Loving the dotted wall!


  11. So pretty. Can you tell us where all the pretty things come from? Love the duvet and chandy.
