MORE IMAGES FROM MY ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION PHOTOSHOOT

IMG_2148.jpg

Yup, that's my sister's bedroom, designed & styled by moi. When I was first contacted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to submit images of spaces I designed that did double-duty, hers was the first that came to mind. The great thing about being a stylist and designer is that I always have tons of stuff at my house--enough that my family can essentially come over and "shop my house" if need be. And when it comes time to whip up a few interior makeovers for my kinfolk, I love nothing more than searching my closets, car (yes, car) and garage for special pieces among my styling stash (remember these chairs here?). Furniture, light fixtures, lamps, accessories & case-pieces--I have it all!

But I digress. As someone who works from home and frequently entertains with dinner parties and out-of-town guests, my sister's master bedroom served as a great place to carve out some additional work space when guests are in town. Even though she's in an apartment, she's used to NYC living where tenants are allowed to paint (and pretty much do as they please), so we painted a black accent wall and relied on textiles and accessories for an added pop of color. I think she'd agree that sleeping in a room this stylish makes apartment living fun...but I wanna know, what say you??
