room service atlanta project - lori may interiors.

as i mentioned last week, i helped out lori may with her room service atlanta project, and i wanted to share with you guys how beautifully it turned out! here is her room before: (you can go here to read about the process)

here you can see the little boy who lives in this room's little pet turtle. his name was "oscar" and he was SO cute. it made me want a tiny turtle pet.

i love this view! lori and heidi (her friend/assistant for the week) made that awesome roman shade with a regular bamboo blind and some white fabric/orange ribbon. they glued it onto the shade, and voila! curtain. isn't it cool? i think she's going to post a tutorial on that, soon.

also, jen from made by girl donated the "LOVE" print - so cute.

lastly, here is a view of the painting i did, over the bed:

the little bird sitting on a branch, near the open cage symbolizes the family that lives at the nicholas house leaving, and moving on to bigger and better things. i thought it was such a sweet sentiment.

thank you so much, lori, for having me, and thanks to erika and dayka for inviting me onto the room service atlanta team. i am honored to be a part, and i can't wait until the next project!

  1. It's wonderful to make people feel special in their time to despair. I love the tree on the wall. It really cheers the room up.

  3. Such a great idea! I'm from Birmingham, AL and a designer friend's small group recently did this at a shelter there. Such a great way to encourage others.

  4. I really like those blinds! We're renovating our upstairs and I'd love to use something like that! Do you know where they came from?

  10. Hey Megan,

    The bamboo blind came from Home Depot. I covered it with white cotton duck fabric and trimmed it with orange grosgrain ribbon.

    I'll post a tutorial soon. It's super easy!

  11. What a great job of giving back ladies. The room is really beautiful. I love the color combo. I have to ask where the yellow rug is from. It looks a lot like the PB Moorish rug that I wish I would have bought.
