DC Apartment Reveal!!

You guys! This is a big day for StyleMutt Home and one we've been dreaming and scheming for a nice long time - and it's such a treat for us to get to share it with you, friends! After several years of flipping furniture, we've felt this natural progression occuring in the direction of interior design. When sweet, young Christine came to us asking if home decorating is anything we would be interested in, we jumped on the opportunity to help her with her apartment! 

Her style is very eclectic with an emphasis on cheerful, she loves nature and color, and her edgy side is perfectly balanced by a gentle, soft side. We were so blessed to work with Christine and wanted to represent the multi-faceted, multi-talented, independent woman that she is. 


So you want to take the tour?! Come on in!




Among a very small handful of pieces Christine already owned was this small shelf that her Mom built and painted!


Christine has herself a nice little vintage camera collection - we used these nesting hexagon shelves from Axel Co. to display them as a fun statement over the media cabinet, (which we found on Craigslist and cleaned up with new hardware).

Faux greens from IKEA nestle cozily inside these wooden bird feeders from Target.

Recognize the tree stump? We shared the tutorial for how we made these from a neighbors backyard trees a little bit ago! You can brush up on the deets here. :)

These faux engineer prints cost about $6 each and only 4 minutes of time a piece, (after getting the supplies). More details on these prints comin' soon - find the easy frame tutorial here!

Christine got herself a banjo during our time working with her - told you she was a cool chick! 




As Christine is in grad school, we wanted to give her more surface space to spread out and keep organized. Building her a desk along the bottom edge of her window sill created a long, sleek, inconspicuous space to do so.

Her beautiful headboard is actually an old door that was once used in Chelsea's home! One side is painted Duck Egg blue, and the other is natural wood. We created legs out of 2x4s that can be screwed into the door headboard from either side in case she ever wants to switch things up!

The color scheme for her bedroom was inspired by Christine's most precious piece of art - a painting named "Lilith."

That's a wrap! Happy house warming to the best first design client these two style mutts could ask for! We will be following up shortly with a source list for both rooms. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
