Casual Glam Beauty Room & Home Office
This makeup artist was inspired by some of YouTube's biggest gurus, Tati Westbrook & Desi Perkins, to convert her "bonus room" into a beauty room & home office.
After watching my first beauty room e-design, she reached out & I was so excited to collaborate with her to create her beauty dreamscape.
This design was everything I love about online design -- collaborating with someone fun & creative, designing remotely with someone I'd otherwise NEVER meet, and most importantly, LITERALLY transforming a room & a life.
As is the case with many of my design projects, there's always a "problem" that needs solving. For this project, we needed to convert what was "supposed" to be the formal dining area into her beauty office. This meant:
- closing off the opening to create privacy from other common areas
- incorporating a ton of storage for her extensive make up collection
- having ample work space, in addition to a seating area, essentially making this her "woman cave"
- creating a casual, yet glamorous space that wouldn't interrupt the flow & feel of the rest of the home
What was truly great about this space was that it was more for both personal & professional use -- a place to keep her MASSIVE make up collection, work with clients, plan appointments, etc.; but also a place for her to experiment with makeup looks, "glam out" when bored, and just be a girl.
Using the inspiration looks of her fav beauty gurus, I put together a mood board that was effortlessly & causally glamorous & chic.
With an approved space plan & mood board, shopping was underway, starting with any pieces that would have a long lead time and/or be difficult to source. Deciding on the lighting, desk, and seating area chair (yes, just the chair, lol) set the tone for the rest of the shopping, as these were some of the marquee pieces for the design.
Entering this stage also allowed me to put together renderings that would give her a visual of how her space would come together. Many times, with e-design especially, it's hard to visualize how all this conceptual stuff will come together in real life. This is why I love putting together renderings for my clients!
