You guys!! I'm one of the three finalists in an exciting competition: Western Canada's Next Home Stylist. If you follow me on any of my social media accounts, you'll probably already know this, but I thought I would officially share it here and ask for your help today.
We just submitted our first challenge - a room layout and a mood board for an awkwardly shaped room - and if you like mine, can you please vote for me?
I would be so grateful!
Here's where you can go vote for my design: http://nexthomestylist.pgtb.me/Ft7c3c You can vote once each day this week.
This master bedroom design and layout has a nod to the nautical, a hint of glamour and a whole lot of gorgeous texture - the perfect recipe for a restful room. Its infused with lots of soft whites, bright dashes of teal and navy, and accents of metallic gold and chrome. The rustic textures of the driftwood furniture and accessories in the room contrast with the shine of the metallic pieces and the tones of blue are a striking yet soothing touch.
DIY Project Idea: Lay some laminate flooring! Not only is it a fairly straight forward project, but there are some beautiful laminates available, including whitewash looks that would be a perfect fit for this room.
Acadia Street Art | Taryn Toss Cushion in Gold | Oralee Candle Holder | Whitewashed Oak Laminate Flooring | Manhattan Sailor Rug | Prism Side Table | Leyla Lantern in Gold | Noble Potted Grass | Nest Furniture Faster Chair in Bumps Teal | Chevron Toss Cushion in Atlantis | Mongolian Square Toss Cushion in White | Gryffin Link Kidney Toss Cushion in Aqua | Pier Pouf | Fulton Throw in White | Adrift Floor Lamp | Toccara Navy Vase | Flynn Ottoman in Teal | Portman Tray in White | Merca Vase in Silver | Patina Leaf Plate in Gold | Mojave Throw in Sailor | Chalet King Bed in Driftwood | Taza Toss Cushion | Element Chandelier in Silver | Nurez Round Wall Mirror
DIY Project Idea: Build a board and batten accent wall! A white board and batten wall behind the bed would be a beautiful addition to this room, and it’s an inexpensive and simple project if using MDF strips and having them cut at the home improvement store.
I imagine this room is for a young couple that needs a retreat after a long day at work or watching their children. The room’s king-sized bed is decked with white linens, and there is a writing desk placed in the awkwardly angled corner on one side that makes the most of this space. In the large nook of the room, a beautiful Nest Chair fits perfectly and offers the couple a cozy spot to read or sip a morning coffee.
If I win this competition, I'll be the official spokesperson at the home shows this Fall in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. I'll get to share some home decor tips and DIYs with a live audience, and this could really be a great way for my blog and my DIY & decor career to grow.
I could not even think to do this kind of thing without the support of my family and friends. Thank you, my dear hubby, for being such a supportive partner in parenting and career dreaming. Thank you, mom, for being such a fantastic example of a loving mother who also continues to develop her creative talents.
Thank YOU, dear readers, for continuing to read my blog and share my DIYs. Your support means more to me than you'll ever know.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes, and thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to vote for me!
