This is a super exciting post for me! After a LOT of dreaming, designing, wishing and (far too much) money spent~ I have a brand spanking new meeting space/boudoir prep room!!! Seeing the vision in my head come to life is such an incredible feeling, and I love the space so much I just want to stay in it forever and live there! This was no easy feat either– it wasn’t just a matter of moving in some furniture and putting some pictures up. The space was built in our unfinished basement, and we had to do everything from framing to drywall (for both the room and staircase) to installing the floors… it was an ordeal! Of course, we had the help of a great contractor, but I must say– my amaaaaazing husband really came through for me. He really put his handiman skills to work and basically executed all my ideas (because let’s face it, I may have a good vision– but heck if I know my way around power tools! hehe) He’s always been my biggest supporter and fan, and I can’t thank him enough.
This space will be where we style all our boudoir clients. We do the actual shooting in another room. I wanted this room to feel comfortable, inspiring and of course– girly! Now without further ado, here’s some pictures of the new space. All photos were taken from my iPhone believe it or not~
This is the styling corner where our amazing professional hair & makeup styling team will set up all their beautifying tools/gear/supplies. We’ve already used it just this past weekend for a Boudoir Marathon and it was so awesome!!
Now something fun I thought I’d share. It’s a great little trick for anyone out there that may be interested. I was having a hard time trying to decide what pictures to get enlarged/framed for my feature wall, so I did a bit of a mock up using photoshop (sorry to those that aren’t photoshop-savvy) I played around with the scale and swapped pics in and out until I was happy with the overall look. I wanted each picture to be unique and for the wall to have a good flow. This was really fast and easy to do, and probably saved me a lot of headache and disappointment. Check out the comparison below of the mock up next to the actual finished wall. Neat-o!!
And lastly, here’s a BEFORE and AFTER. Crazy isn’t it?! Looking at this now really makes all the hard work, time, money and stress worth it! I can’t wait to enjoy it with all our future clients!! We’d love to know your thoughts on the new space, so feel free to leave us a comment below. Thanks for checking it out!
