working girl - sundvik/gulliver vignette

Hey Guys! I wanted to go ahead and share the rest of the vignettes with you!  This one focused on Sundvik products for a nursery.

Simple, sweet, and straight to the point, right? And it screams, let's get this baby changed! :)

This vignette was unique in that we had more than one wall to play with, which turned out to be quite nice. We turned the extra sliver of wall into a space for small toys and supplies.

Here are a few closeups. Oh, and just in case you're a little curious, the wall color is Pale Avocado by Benjamin Moore.

And of course you can never get too tired of the Lova leaf. It's simply a crowd-pleaser.

If you look closely you can see where I made a faux crib skirt out of fabric by the yard. I just draped a cut length over the bottom of the bed.

Marianne helped me out with the execution this vignette, so big shout outs go to her for being so amazing! Oh, and just in case you're wondering what was going on over on the far wall, why don't I go ahead and engage you!

This was the last vignette in the children's department. De'Airra took the lead on this one, and it turned out wonderfully. This is designed as sleeping area for a sweet toddler using the Gulliver crib, and of course more Stuva. The color combo is completely accidental (the fronts that we wanted to use were out of stock) but I love how in-your-face the colors turned out. It's all super cute. 

I must say, these vignettes were a nice little cherry to top off my time as designer in children's department. There are just a few more roomsettings to install that I initially designed, but for the most part I'll be taking backseat during the implementation. My new area in the store is living rooms, and I couldn't be more excited! New Year, new changes!  There is one more small (but huge) project that I want to share with you before we start talking about my new area. Can you guys what it is? Nope bet you can't! Toodles for now.

sektion launch

Hey Folks! On February 2, 2015 IKEA launched its brand new kitchen range called Sektion. Almost a year prior to the launch, I was chosen as the interior designer to represent our Atlanta store at the US Service Office. Along with Kim, our Sektion sales leader, and Erin, our Visual Merchandising planner, we created a beautiful department that kitchen dreams are made of.  Here we are below sitting on the famous concrete Klippan sofa. These ladies were amazing to work with! 

While there, I collaborated with Common Store Planning to create the layout of each kitchen in our store. When I came back home, I had about 5 weeks to and create all of the IKEA roomsetting documentation, as well as all of the official installation drawings and contract documents for city permitting. Fast forward a year later and there are 19 new kitchens in our store! Wanna see? Here are the ones in the kitchens and dining department.

dining with a docksta

So I have been totally debating whether or not I need this table in my life. Sure it's "an interpretation" of one of the most recognized tables in history, but at $149 can you really justify not having some Saarinen worship in your home?

With that being said, I asked some advice from my dining expert Eddie at work, and he told me the structural integrity of a table that comes in parts is only sound as the person who spends the time to construct it. In other words, no wobble worries if you do it right! I think the Docksta would be a great starter table. Let's see how people make this simple little "nod to greatness" look adorable.

 I love the idea of some fresh pillows in the dining chairs. You can change them out seasonally. A chic lighting fixture would give the table some sparkle too.

 Ha! There goes that Stockholm Rand (which I am still loving by the way).  The chair legs blend in so well with the rug, that you can't help but notice the table base.

decorators show house

In January I was approached with the incredible opportunity to design a space for Atlanta's most prestigious residential showcase for designers -  The Atlanta Symphony's Decorators Show House and Gardens. This terrace level bonus room was presented to IKEA Atlanta, and my managers thought that it would be a great experience to further develop me as designer, project manager, and leader. And you know what, they could not have been more right! At 26, this experience has made my young career. To quote myself in a conversation with my manager Michael, this has been "the most challenging, frustrating, exhausting, amazing, and rewarding project that I have ever been apart of! This was definitely an opportunity of a lifetime."  
Below are some before photos when we viewed the space for the very first time, as well as a few photos that are just a few finishing touches away from being complete. The planning took about Two-and-a-half months, the construction took about thre…
