    I rehab/flip/live in for short term REO or short sale properties. The profit to effort ratio is ludicrous and I could build a home blindfolded. I ran large scale remodeling for a company in Bethesda Chevy chase for years then had my own company and now flip REO's. I have some pictures left from some built ins but most of them were done on a minimalist budget. The major ones I would take pride in are eaten by Yahoo web design when they offered to "probably not recover the compromised data for $200" 6 years of photos and a website gone because of "renting" a website. I learned.

    Creating residential art at a high level is what I love to do. If curious then you could look up 8175 halley court, unit 303 lorton VA on zillow. Thats how it was sold last month. Real curious then you'd look at others in the same price range in that area. Not to difficult to bury the competition. It was a cash offer in 7 days at 97% of asking, no contingencies. The Pending offer on 1407 skipjack dr ft washington is mine. a smoking walk in closet and a nice kitchen with a few other minor things and that will be in the same boat. It really doesn't take much to separate yourself at this level. For instance I haven't seen plug strip...ever in another home with new kitchens...or a consistent theme through the home besides contractor grade colonial. Hell most don't even realize toilets come in different styles to match hardware.

    For now, how about I'm a fan, and if I see someone who needs a decorator I'll recommend you.

    What was this window cushion stuffed with. Not the standard foam but maybe all softer batting? I want to make this exact look. Help?

    A combination of foam and down.

    I'm sorry Rawni, i am not familiar with Behr paints. Palace white is a very creamy greyed white. It's a nuetral that can be combined with most colors.

    Did you glaze over the ceiling and the walls? This is a great, timeless room!

    Thank you!
    We glazed the ceiling, but not the walls. The walls are flat paint. The turq on the ceiling was a little bold, so we toned it down and gave it some sparkle.

    I believe it is the Country Swedish gustuvian bed. I had it upholstered with an Osborn and Little fabric.
    If you want help purchasing the bed as shown, please email me.
  • Brandi R
    Do you know if Osborne and Little still sell this fabric? I cannot find it anywhere. Thank you in advance.

    Thank you so much! :) My daughter has special needs and is now a preteen. She's not really into anything specific, but as soon as I saw this picture I knew her room had to look like this. We thank you for sharing :))

    Hello Lori- can't seem to find the wallpaper on the Osborne & Little website. Are you saying the name of the wallpaper is Darly Leblone? Any idea where I can find it online?
  • PRO
    InDesign / Lori Ludwick
    Yes, darly leblone is the wallpaper name. If its not on the o&l site, it may have been discontinued. It would suggest searching eBay, or looking for a similar style at your local wallpaper store,.

    Thank you!

    The window seat cushion has a foam core, for stability and shape, with a layer of down on the top and bottom. I think it was more than 5" to start, but has compressed over time. Maybe 3" foam core, and two 2-3" layers of down; the tufting compacts the layers, and keeps everything together.

    A good upholsterer should be able to replicate the piece.

    The builder chose the window molding. I don't have any information about it.

    It's a built-in bench.
    You can get the same effect with any kind of low bench under a window. Add a cushion on top.

6. Comfy hangout spots. “Comfortable seating in a child’s room creates a safe place to snuggle your small one and also encourages your school-age child to hang out with friends at home. Who doesn’t want that?” says designer Lori Ludwick of InDesign.Window seats, she says, are popular features in kid rooms. “It’s easy to see yourself reading books to your toddler and imagine your teenager tweeting from that same intimate space,” she says.

15. A fun mix of color, pattern, texture and styles made this the No. 7 photo of an eclectic space uploaded in 2013.

7. Layers of bright colors and touchy-feely texture stand out in this kids’ room. Trim outlines flocked wallpaper behind a patterned headboard, while colorful pillows sit on a thick turquoise window seat cushion. To really push the layers, interior designer Lori Ludwick added embellishments to a simple Ikea nightstand. She also custom made the feather-covered chandelier. Wall paint: Palace White, Benjamin Moore; ceiling paint: Florida Keys with pearlescent glaze, Benjamin Moore; headboard: Country Swedish; bedding: Pratesi; wallpaper: Darly Leblone, Osborne & Little; nightstand: Malm, Ikea
