|The room is currently a pale...pale....pale, did I mention pale pink.|
As you can see in the picture above, color is not the rooms strong point. It's paler than pale pink paint job creates a contrast issue for everything in the room. Either the black metal bed draws too much attention or the crib and white furnishing disappear into the colorless abyss. We need a color palette that brings together the rooms decor and furnishings. The room is a good sized room created from two intersecting square footprints. So there's plenty of room for two girls to share and yet have their own spaces.
|This opposite view from the previous picture highlights how the room consists of two intersecting square footprints.|
Now, there's a bonus challenge in redesigning this room. It's like a gameshow....what's behind door number 1, door number 2 or door number 3. Yes, there are 3 odd, off to wonderland, mismatched doors that lead to the attic crawl spaces. Can you spot them? One in the picture below, which is obvious because it's a big, bold, in your face, step up. The second, in the picture above, is hiding behind the toybox. Alice would need to indulge in the "Drink Me" secret sauce to enter for sure. The final one is concealed behind the side of the crib in the first picture. There are traditional ways of camouflaging these types of doors but I'm going to propose the opposite for at least one of them. I'm going to make it stand out, altering it's appearance so you no longer notice it's a door.
|The attic access door adds a bit of "Winchester" styling to the room.|
