This week I am starting a new mini series focusing on the idea of the ‘spare room’. Living in a two-bedroom apartment made me think that the purpose of this ‘spare room’ (the second bedroom) is different for so many people. So I am turning this idea into a design challenge and creating design boards, layouts and shopping lists with a few rules:
- Each room will start from the same empty space and size of my ‘spare room’.
Our room is 10 ft x 11 ft – the far wall being all windows and the opposite having the door and a double door closet.
- The budget – all designs will be under $3,000 – an obtainable investment that includes furniture, rugs, and accessories, etc.
- The focus of all the spaces will be function and livability – honing in on the important aspects of each specific usage.
I hope you’ll follow along with the weekly posts for six weeks and all six potential functions of this ‘spare room.’
First up this Friday is The Nursery – Here’s a sneak peak of the inspiration for this space:
I can’t wait to share the final design!
