Last week I flew to LA to help my youngest son decorate his apartment. My assignment was to paint an accent wall in the master bedroom and help attach wood wall panels. Since I only had three full days to accomplish this task (and more) I went on the Home Depot website and filled a shopping cart with everything I needed and set it for "pick-up". Of course it was at the Home Depot near where he lived and a few days before my arrival my son went and picked it all up. He also chose the paint that he wanted. Now I am on "Team Sherman Williams" but since his place is a rental no worries if we went off brand. When I landed I found a big box of all my needed supplies waiting for me in the living room, (my son was at work). So....I got right down to it and started working.
First...painting the accent wall.
Second...attaching the wood wall panels.
I first found the wood wall panels, called walling by this company, and showed them to my son who loved the idea. There are numerous companies out there that sell these self-adhesive (peel-and-stick backing) panels but this company had the best price. Full disclosure; they did not stay up. It might have been because I had painted the wall the day before and it was unseasonably hot those few days, just not sure. For him it was not a big deal anyway because he lives in So. California and due to the occasional earthquake and the placement of the boards over the head of his bed we were planning on placing a few nails anyway. Hence the photo of him with a hammer...haha. So if you are apposed to nailing them up then maybe do a little more research in regard to the adhesive. Also, the panels he chose are the "Genoa -White Oak".
Third...shopping for bedding, wall art, end tables and lamps.
(sorry, no photos of our excursion but you get the gist)
And here it is....the finished room.
So I ask you...apartment master bedroom or New York City hotel room?
Note: About a month prior to my arrival I started a Pinterest Board so I could share my inspirations to Kyle. He wanted a very sleek and clean look in neutral colors. Below is the board. Trust me when I say I pushed hard for pops of color but he held steadfast with his ideas and I think he hit the nail on the head.
Thanks for visiting and don't hesitate to send questions.
