Before Redesign-Surabhi's Bedroom

Monday I'll be redesigning Surabhi's Bedroom!  She is in a rental property so we can't do anything too permanent.  Sounds challenging, right?  Here is her bedroom currently:

Surabhi's Bedroom 2

Surabhi's Bedroom 1

Here are the questions she answered for me to better understand her style and what she's looking for in the space.

What are your favorite design store/home décor stores?  They can be brick and mortar stores or online stores.

What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

  • Casual, Out of the Ordinary, Trendy

What is the most important thing you’d like done with the space?

  • To give it a warm and cozy look and feel.  A place where I would feel completely relaxed after an extremely hectic day.

What are two of your favorite colors?

  • Green (the background color of your website), Orange (Although I don't want the room to be too colorful- hints of bright colors will be nice along with existing tans and browns)

What are two of your least favorite colors?

  • Blue and Red

Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?

  • I don't really like floral prints.  Not a huge fan of wicker.  Casual and contemporary will be my preference.  I believe I mentioned earlier that since it's a rental property, I wouldn't want to change the wall color.  I would like a headboard and some seating or bench to sit or keep my clothes on (although I wouldn't want to clutter the space too much so if you think it will be too much, we can skip it.)

What are the dimensions of the room?

  • Approximately 11' x 11'

Be sure to check back Monday for her completed design!  Do YOU have any suggestions for her?  Be sure to leave them in the comments below!

Don't forget you can submit your own space to be featured here.

I'm dying to hear some of your recommendations for sprucing up a rental space! I'm always trying to think of ways to add color when I can't paint.

I can't wait to see how this one turns out.
