What would I do...

Are you so tired of seeing this furniture... I hope not, because it is AMAZING! Just needs the right family. I have always wanted to do a fun modern space and just have complete freedom to create.... let's just pretend for a moment you gave me that freedom ...what would I do with this furniture?
Here goes....




I would put this dresser and headboard in a guest room in a carriage house for a young couple... In an old carriage house with dormer windows and sloped ceilings and wide, uneven pine wood floors... (are you with me?)



white walls, thick white molding and tons of light...


I would layer the bed with white... texture and lots of pillows....


 Definitely toss in a little zig zag....


Hooper put these in a clients home and I have been loving them ever since.... These would be the bedside tables I would choose...


And I am so sorry to kill the budget with these $600 paper mache artichoke lamps but really... don't you just NEED them?


Because I am mindful of budgets...this would be another great option & $160.  Less sculptural then the other lamp but still pretty cool... In fact I'm starting to like it better... a little cleaner, very pretty shape! If I was Oprah I would give you one! Lamps for all!


Above the bed would hang Target 1974 by Jasper Johns (in honor of my birth year...)  With all that white wouldn't this be perfect?

Of course.... there would have to be some hide underfoot.... Isn't this just the right look for those plank floors? If your guest happens to be a card carrying member of  PETA, you might want to have a backup rug in the closet.... A faux hide perhaps?



Throw a little chair in the corner.....




Put some wooden tops on the dresser (You can never have enough wooden tops!)
and...Voila! You have a rad guest space!

So... if you are that young couple with a guest room in a carraige house with sloped ceilings and pine floors...Give us a buzz and we will mack it out!

May all your design dreams come true...
Bye, bye birdie,

I'll take two of the chests for our master bathroom, please.

Thanks!
