Happy Tuesday friends! Today I wanted to share the before pictures, and design plans for the Make it Home Show House with Invitation Homes taking place on May 15-18 in Kennessaw, GA. First, I wanted to thank everyone that took the time to comment on my announcement post. I appreciate it soooo much. I can’t wait to see this project come to life! If you didn’t check out that post, make sure you do, so that you can read all about Invitation Homes and the Make it Home Show House.
Well, I am happy to say that I am in full swing with planning, and I am happy to share my plans with you today. Lets first take a look at what the space looks like currently.
See! Invitation Homes houses are maintained and updated to provide a blank slate for their next resident to make it their home. This will be the perfect space to watch a colorful kids room unfold.
Now on to the plans…
This room will represent the ultimate kids personality, hence all of the bright, primary colors. I want imagination, joy, and playfulness to be at the forefront to all who see this space. The temporary map wallpaper, will serve as a reminder of how big and diverse the world is, and how the opportunities to see the world are endless. The Kallax shelves will be along the wall across from the bed, and one of the shelves will be used as a bench. I will also add cute and functional storage to the closet, and a nice chest of drawers on the small wall that will be across from the bed.
The stained picture/book ledges that will be between the two Kallax shelves will be a fun and simple DIY, which I will be also showing you how to make your own in my workshop on May 18 at the Show House. You can register to attend that here.
So let me know what you think? Is this a space that you think a kid will love?
I asked my five -year- old son what he thought about the room, and he said it looks awesome. That’s a big enough co-sign for me!
That’s it for now. You can of course follow along with all of the fun and watch the implementation of this design plan over on my Instagram page over the next couple of weeks, so make sure you are following me!
