West-side living room makeover: sneak peek

Paint a circle on the wall behind a matching shelf | Justina Blakeney justina-blakeney-cpwm10

I have been HUSTLING and juggling this week. Thank goodness Ida has begun sleeping through the night because without that–(wo)man oh man I don’t know how I’d be gettin’ through! One of the projects that I’m hustling on is a living room makeover on the West Side. I’m redoing the space for a client in partnership with World Market and I’m kinda giddy with how the whole thing is progressing. Sunny, bright, playful and patternful,  this space is seeing MUCHO changes. I can’t wait to show you the rest–but in the mean time, here’s a little taste…I went a little crazy with the neon yellow paint–and yes, I painted that yellow circle RIGHT onto the wall. Ha! Can’t wait to hear what you think!
