Saturday Stuff: “Think Outside The Headboard Box” our ivillage Feature
I love ivillage
I read it long before being asked to contribute so am always grateful when I can share projects. Please pin, like, share! We’d love to do more.
Not EVERYTHING we do at Couture Chateau is large scale 🙂
This DIY Project and the one we will share tomorrow were Designed with Client’s using VIP Days which accommodate all budgets
As you know from my Frugal Friday posts, VALUE is important to me
If you have a smaller or remote project, contact us. We’d be thrilled to chat via email. Who knows, your project may just end up featured on the Blog!
For the project below, 12 Foot Sloped Ceilings were presenting issues and the Client did not have a large budget. The room doubles as office & guest room.
Here is the Description from ivillage
Think Outside the Headboard Box
Many bloggers have shared step-by-step tutorials on how to make upholstered headboards, which are an affordable, albeit labor-intensive, way to spruce up your bedroom, but Ann McDonald of design firm Couture Chateau came up with an even better idea. When she found a 3-section divider made out of coconut shells at Home Goods for $39.99, she knew it’d make the perfect headboard for her client’s guest bedroom. The ceilings are over 12 feet high at one end of the room and Ann’s client wanted something that would make a strong visual statement. Ann loved the divider’s textural quality and lucky for her, it was a perfect fit for a queen bed and worked well with the casual vibe of the room.
The Client handled the installation themselves. The 3 screen panel is attached with a cleat system from Home Depot and can easily be moved
The Coverlet is Barbara Barry from Tuesday Morning
The Shams are Ralph Lauren Home Collection, Wool with Velvet Trim
The Prints are antique architectural renderings framed by Aaron Brothers
The desk ( barely in frame) is from a consignment store and we changed handles for a more contemporary look. Couture Chateau custom lining on inside of drawers with patterned fabric over board so guests would feel special!
Because this space functions as both an office and guest room, the Client needed a place to keep office items. Since I specified to custom line the drawers, wasn’t keen on a bunch of pens possibly leaking. Solution? A shadow box frame that opens from the front! The Client can clearly see pens, paperclips, sim cards and simply pick up the box when guests arrive.
No cleaning out messy drawers. Happy Everyone 🙂
