Room for Improvement – choices and progress

Met with the clients today and great progress has been made! A WHDH film crew was out at their house this morning to film the “before” footage. Photos here.

The Headboard

The fabulous Walter Heller of Heller Furniture in Norwell, MA dug into his bag of tricks and came up with an orphaned king sized headboard frame that he is generously providing to the project. So, all we have to pay for is the actual upholstering and fabric. It amounts to about 50% off the retail price, so thank you Walter!
This is the fabric we’ll be using on the headboard. It’s a soft nubby chenille.

The Bedding


I found this nice little duvet and sheet set at Homegoods that fit into our color palette perfectly. We’ll also be adding in a simple box pleat bedskirt.

Window Treatments


At the outset, my clients expressed a desire for a fresh, contemporary and calm space. I thought tri-colored panel window treatments such as these would fit the bill perfectly. I’ll be making these out of the following three solid fabrics:

Here are some additional fabrics that I’ll be using to make custom pillows, which are a specialty of mine. Some examples of my pillows are here and here.

I was hoping to be able to fit in a cute little wrought iron bench seat that I’d seen in a consignment shop (see previous post) but between the price of the bench, plus custom box cushion and pillows to make it comfy, we decided that it wasn’t worth the hit to the budget.

Next up: artwork and accessories…
