My closet has been in it's final stretch state for awhile. Why? Because I'm not the best at budgeting for finishing touches. I know they are what "makes" a room but I always fail to properly account for them. If I account for the artwork, I forget the frame. If I think about the drapes, I forget about the hardware. Next thing I know, a simple room "refresh" ends up costing hundreds more than what I ever thought. This is always something that gets me and I hate it! I would rather splurge for the perfect quality sofa that I'll love years longer and live with bare walls than get something I like a lot less but have the room be "done."
I'm going to use the above as my shopping list moving forward with the closet. This design is perfect for me - a mix of old & new! I'm able to work in multiple elements that I consider my staples (leather, brass hardware, dark paint) and layer in some more "trendy" pieces that I've still been eyeing for awhile.
I think the jewel tones in the pouf & painting will be the perfect pop for the space. They're a little girlie but not in your face and the terrarium & mirror helps to tie room in with the over design in our home.
As you can see from the below picture, the painting progress hasn't gotten very far but I LOVE that I pulled the trigger and painted the white trim that was once casing the built-in drawers! You can see the before's here. I think I've decided to paint everything (wood paneling & drawer fronts) the dark wall color.
This post is in partnership with One Kings Lane, I have not been paid or perked for this. They did ask me to mention their Home Decor Shopping Handbook and I felt like the tips in this one (Unleash Your Inner Hipster) is relevant for both my personal style and the design direction of our home. If you're looking for a guide that breaks down how to pair old & new, I highly recommended it!
