Wednesday’s Wink … { install day!!!! curtains, decals, etc. | Part 1 of 2 }

Happy Wednesday! When client items are shipped to my office the first thing we do is inspect them (in particular - color color, size, and making sure that there are no damages).

One of my clients in Westchester County was in the process of moving from New Rochelle to Larchmont so I volunteered to have some of her items shipped to my office for storage and since were were the 1st eyeballs to see the items, we had to be 100% sure that there were no damages. So, when the 10 (yes, TEN) curtain panels arrived … it was inspection time!!!! Don’tcha love the design of the curtains?:

Once the client and her fam settled into their new home and all of the items within their design arrived, it was then …. installation day!!!! Here’s Evelisa and one of our contractors installing the lovely curtains. The basement space also has a washer/dryer area, so to ‘pretty-size’ the space we added curtains to the W/D entry.

My design included modern light gray colors with cool graphic designs presented  in the curtains, wall decals, pillow covers, and rug. Below is a peek at a few:

Here are some of the pillow covers.

And below is a peek at one of the soft gray wall decal, do you like the design? Doesn’t it go beautiful with the above pillow covers?:

Oh, did I forget to mention that this design was for a basement? Here’s Evelisa (you know her best as my fabulosa design assistant) and a photo of the first day I walked into the basement to take measurements … yep, NO walls up yet … just concrete:

The mission was to turn the basement into a guest room/ kids’ karaoke play space, and a poker room that sits 10 players. The client already had a contractor to install the walls, ceiling, closets .. and we came in to transform it from a basement to an elegant/fun/casual room .. all with economical solutions of course (bec that is how we rooooll over here).

One big disappointing moment is when my contractors open the clear folding chairs …and we discovered that they were broken in shipping; clients hadn’t inspected the package when it was delivered to them by the store so we only discover this the day of installation (boohoo sniff sniff). I remember looking at the package and thinking … that does NOT look right? .. for I quickly noticed the package was bubbled-wrapped OUTSIDE, instead of putting extra care of protecting the inside contents (how weird is that?)!!!

But the design installation muuuuust continue!!!! Here are a few more design items incorporated into the room … yellow pillow covers (for 1 side of the room) and yellow wall decals (for the other side of the room = color balance!) …. and …

since we wanted to turn the space into a fun area for karaoke fun for the kids, I proposed music note decals ….. whatchathink of it?

The ceiling has some weird shapes (remember, it is a basement) so I added wall decals to the low ceiling posts to give people the visual ‘heads-up’ that the ceiling is low. I kid you not, i felt I was in yoga class installing these decals since I had to stretch and bend (practically backwards sometimes) .. all in the line of fun cool design:

Stay tuned next week for more photos of the design installation!! Until our next post, have a SPECTACULAR day!!!!

      Yeah, sad to see it had arrived broken. Not uncommon though, which is why it is so SUPER - IMPORTANT to check packages as they arrive for … damages, imperfections, color, size.
