The bedroom is an intimate place for most people, and it’s no different for me. Of all the rooms in the house, this one is my very own - my haven. It's where I go after a long day. The room had to invoke peace and warmth and an overall relaxed vibe, so pastels was a natural choice for me. I wanted the room to have a very natural and neutral look with some jewel tones popping in here and there to add a little bit of fun. With respect to the design, I was looking to create a space which was a mix between Contemporary with maybe some Art Deco influences. The contemporary side of things would help keep the look very neat and clean with a sleek finish while the Art Deco influence would allow me the liberty to experiment with very individualistic and creative pieces, bringing in a sense of sophistication to the space. Art Deco and Contemporary are two design themes that go very well together, and I thought they'd be perfect for my bedroom!
Watching Design Experts at Work
I hadn’t done anything to the look and feel of the bedroom for years. I was open to ideas and was happy to let Lauren take the wheel and guide me to what was best, and she did just that. I wanted my bedroom to be a combination of contemporary and art-deco, basically because I like how these two design themes come together seamlessly. The other thing with me was the color palette of the room. I wanted the vibe to be relaxed, so picking the right colors was a must. Lauren aptly brought together all these details. She went with a lovely color scheme consisting of pastels and neutral shades. This color selection brought in a lot of calm, but it did not make the bedroom look bland at all. The Liliyana upholstered bed was a masterpiece, and it added a lot of grandeur. Adding the soft pink sofa from Joss & Main was a great idea as well - a beautiful place to sit and read a book or enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning before starting the day. Lauren included a lot of accessories and decor elements all over the room, and they were drop-dead gorgeous. The Bone Side Table from West Elm was the perfect addition, and the Dobson Drawer Dresser from Wayfair was just perfect for that extra storage space. The wall mirror from Joss & Main was mighty in its own way, strategically placed near the doorway. I loved how much natural light filtered into the room, this coupled with the table lamp from Wayfair and the Crystal floor lamp from Pottery Barn, the lighting options were well and truly taken care of.
Designer NotesHey Maxie, it was a treat designing your bedroom for you. I had a lot of fun translating your vision into your 'dream' bedroom. Like you wanted, I've used cool, soothing pastel colors and the Grey, Pink goes well with the earthy neutral tones. The design is a perfect blend of contemporary and art deco, and the accessories that I've used bring out that sleek and sophisticated look. The Liliyana Queen Bed from Wayfair is the star of the show. It has got the right amount of flair, but at the same time, it's not an eyesore (quite the opposite, really!). I hope you enjoy your new bedroom, Maxie...I sure had a lovely time designing it for you.
Using the Spacejoy App to Experience Designs in 3D
One of the main reasons why I decided to go ahead with Spacejoy was because of the 3D Design experience. And for a person who is decorating for the first time, it was new and rather exciting. Through the app, I could view my bedroom design almost like it was already done and right there in my home in front of me, but at the same time giving me the freedom to analyze and change things around. This aspect, I think, is essential, because it allows one to be totally comfortable with all the elements of the room before proceeding with the actual design. Besides, the experience was so easy and novel - I think it’s a great feature to offer to the customers!
Photorealistic images or 3D renders of Maxie’s Bedroom
When I first spoke to Lauren about my vision, I already felt a connection with her. I knew that she would be the right person to take this design dream of mine and turn it into reality. As we progressed, each detail and every element slowly started finding their place in the plan. The feedback process was smooth, and we didn’t have to go back and forth a lot. The detailed and interactive nature of the app helped a lot. By the time we had finalized the layout with the help of the 3D renders of the bedroom from the app, I was sure that it was going to turn out exactly how I wanted it to be.
Final Design Renders100% Happiness Delivered
This is what Maxie and Mark McClintock had to say on the final designJoyous Homes, Happy Customer
My husband and I were looking for a cost effective way to redecorate our bedroom. Our bedroom has built-in Art Deco architecture and we always struggled with how to merge that with our personal style. We were BLOWN-AWAY with the design concepts that our designer, Lauren, came up with. We felt like they stepped into our bedroom and waved a magic wand and granted our wishes. The 3D room rendering really helped us, we are visual people and we literally needed to see the concept brought to life. We are so impressed that we are going to use Spacejoy to finish our entire house. Thank you!
