Hickman Project

I met April Hickman at the city park. She happened to be just as pregnant as I was. As I got to know her, she sought me out to help her with her new home. She had a few rooms that she wanted to finish before her second baby arrived. Her new home was in the country set on a few beautiful acres of land.

Inside the home had a country primitive theme that April wanted to keep as we thought about her design plan. The first room on the list was her master bedroom. This grand room already had beautiful furniture, however the space wasn't well organized and needed a little spice! Below is the before photos of April's master bedroom.

As her and I chatted about the design theme for the master bedroom, I found she really enjoys warm hues; reds, browns, and golds. We picked out a beautiful bed quilt with those warm colors first and themed the room around that. Below is the simple idea board I created for April.

We went through all of the ideas I had for her master bedroom. First, a warm two tone cappuccino color on the walls. She loved the color! Second,  her master had a beautiful tray ceiling, I suggested we create floor to ceiling window treatments to highlight the height of the space even more. I also wanted to create the illusion that they had a wall of windows by extending the width of the curtain rail and layering the draps. Lastly, I told her I wanted to change around the layout of her furniture to maximize the space and function. Once, the design ideas were approved, we went to work!

 I easily found everything I was looking for shopping and I couldn't wait to to put it all together. Also, as I was staging April's bedroom, she let me pick through a basement pile of decor that haven't had a home yet. Once the design was reveal to the Hickman, they couldn't believe all their stuff I was able to use. That evening the Hickman's had a beautiful master to enjoy!
