A very nice family came to visit the shop in the latter part of June. The little boy was just a complete sparkle of a kid. Having only boys myself, I so appreciate the idiosyncracies of boys. He loves airplanes, trains, big trucks, loud construction equipment, etc.. The family was moving to Westchester from NYC in about 2 weeks time. They needed to have a room ready for their little boy, on moving day. He was leaving his crib behind and needed a big boy bed. New neighborhood, new house, new bed. We needed to work quickly. Ofcourse, we had a holiday weekend in between. Adds a little more stress to the equation.
This is the room when I first saw it. A classic bedroom from a house built in the 1920′s.
The couple really wanted wallpaper. We chose this Ralph Lauren paper..
The company did a quick ship on the artwork..
The window treatments just couldn’t be done in time. Obviously, panels would overwhelm the windows. I really didn’t want to do standard shades or romans. The windows are quite low to the floor. Any kind of cord is an issue. We chose a roller roman shade. It is a new shade, that we are beginning to use. No outside cords. They will be ready by the end of July. The flush mount light fixture is also back ordered, but will be in shortly. Made of glass, it will give off ample light.
The room was ready for the little boy..
I was there to see the excitement on the little boy’s face. Some really good perks of my job!
