I’ll cut straight to the chase, alright? I meant to post this two weeks ago, but life and doubt got in the way. Every time I’d sit down to sort through the pictures, trying to decide which ones to share, how to edit them, I’d obsess over which ones to pick, and then toss them and promise to try again the next day because I didn’t think they were good enough. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and insecurity really is a bitch guys. May I be delivered from it soon (can I hear an “amen”?)
Anyway, doing this master bedroom was a dream. I was a bit apprehensive initially because of the massive pillar that someone saw fit to have in the master bedroom, but it ended up somehow inspiring the room’s colour scheme because I didn’t want to paint it over that special effects turquoise paint (I never got the name).
So while wondering how to work around that pillar, I found myself staring at this blue and white display at Mr. Price Home one afternoon while wandering around Sarit Centre after a visit to the clinic for food poisoning. I was struggling to walk straight, but I somehow had the strength to walk into the shop and look for pretty things. Because I have priorities, and creating nice spaces is right at the top of my list. Plus my client is a pisces so I thought bringing shades of blue into the space would be calming for her.
And that’s how we ended up with this, what I call “approachable luxe.” It’s beautiful to look at, but comfortable enough to live in. The kind of space that could easily pass for a nice boutique hotel, but which invites you to come in, lie down and rest.
Did we nail it?
Also, I just wanted to say thank you to my assistant Shiku for being the dopest wingman on this project. From dealing with painters and suppliers while I was stuck at work, to arguing with a fundi who wanted to do his own things and putting me on video call to prover her point, and working late to make sure the house was liveable from day one of moving in.
Next week I’ll share pictures of the bathroom and balcony. Can’t wait!
