hen her clients wanted an update of their guest room/office, Janice Burke of
eye4design Interior Decorating created a clean, simple and comfortable space
for the young professional couple.
Having a European family background, the owners preferred clean lines
and low profile furniture, explained the decorator who, of course, added a touch
of her signature pallet wood flair to the overall design. “The low profile bed was
purchased from IKEA and chalk painted by The Creative Bug,” Burke said.
“Eye4design then made pallet wood inserts for the headboard, making sure
some of the planks matched the colour of the clients’ existing bedside table. The
table top was chalk painted too, and new knobs gave the piece a new look. We
made the custom art above the bed, finding metal letters from Urban Cottage. I
liked the simplicity of the words [work and sleep] that aptly describe the room.”
The decorator also chose a lilac-based grey wall paint, a new area rug from Souza
Carpets & Flooring and grey and white bedding with lilac accents from Gibbons
Company to completely change the look of the room. Removing some unwanted
pieces to simplify the space, hiding computer wires and jazzing up the dull filing
cabinet with some spray paint and new handles finished off the new look.
“It came out as clean, simple and comfortable as I envisioned,” said Burke.
