We're just delighted to announce that we will be taking part in the 2013 Peninsula Volunteers Decorator Show House - in Woodside - opening on May 4th. Our room is already starting to come together - but, I thought I'd let y'all in on a bit of the preliminary work on the space.
When 'shopping' through a showcase house for a room - one always has several difficult decisions to make right from the beginning. Do you pitch a concept for one of the big, sexy rooms - along with practically *everyone* else . . . weighing the visibility of the room against the amount of competition for the space? Or does one go a bit more convertly down to one of the smaller, 'harder' rooms - and try to create some magic where little to none may exist already?
As you can see from the 'before' images posted below - I've gone for the second category. We're WAY downstairs . . . but, in a lovely little space just off the tennis court and near the pool. If nothing else - maybe I can get in some laps at the pool while I'm waiting for the contractor to arrive . . . lol.
Here's what we're plotting . . .
