If you have taken a peek at my about me page then the images I’m about to show you won’t surprise you, but if you haven’t here is a peek at it so we can all be on the same page:
If you read the section on the summer of 1992 you will see that my first design decision was picking out a bedroom set for my new room. During the late 80′s/early 90′s formica was all the rage and I had an Uncle that made custom formica furniture. So, when I needed a new set for my new room in our new house we knew exactly where to get it. We got to work on the plans right away on all of the pieces were custom fit to my bedroom to get the most out of the space and I got to go through samples and pick out colors for it. Always stylish I went with a lilac and pink color story.
Even though I haven’t used that bedroom set for over a decade it was until very recently still residing in my parents home.
Check it out:
Bed with built in headboard that has additional storage:
Desk & Nightstand area:
The whole set recently left my parents home, because once my parents found out they were going to be grandparents they wanted a little room in their house for their first grandchild. This room is now empty, but in the near future it will be house a full size bed for my sisters or adult guests and a crib for the littlest guest that is arriving in Dec.
It’s been fun to plan two spaces for the new baby. I’m going a bit color happy in our house and a bit more neutral in this space. Can’t wait to share the progress with you all.
So, since I spilled and shared my first design decision I need you all to leave me a comment and tell me what yours was. Even though I laugh now about the formica I think I always was a decorator and love that I went with two colors and paid attention to space planning.
