Hi I’m, Rebecca Robson. Welcome back to Robson design. Today I’m, going to show you a really fun project. We did a makeover on a bedroom as well as the rest of a condo in a retirement home for a friend of mine.
Yes, a lot of you. If you’ve been watching my videos, you’ve, seen in several of them. My friend Rose, I think there’s been probably five or six projects. I’ve done for Rose over the years. This was one of our earlier projects where we did her condo, and you guys might remember this one.I took her husband’s old condo and turned his bedroom into something much more sophisticated, a little more Ralph Lauren 15 years later. She’s, my longest-running client 16 years 17 years, good lord. She’s.
Moving into a retirement home and guess what she called her old friend, Rebecca yep, I’m gonna help her. So I’m gonna. Take you along for the ride and let’s. Give a thumbs up for Rose all right, so today’s, video! Oh my gosh! This is such a fun project.This is archive footage from three years ago. I was fatter, and I was older. Today is the first day. This is not working. So do you want me to talk louder, you think about this loud as you work, they give you $ 600 for dinner alone, and they also have two moms.I like that you can go through your $ 600. There alone got your name. This is a nice size yeah it’s a nice size, so your mom is racing outside, which would you use more the leather? Do you sit in a leather chair? A lot.Is that your favorite spot? No, do you sit in the shays ever? No, do you ever sit. I really use my bedroom all the time. Well then, let’s. Put a bed in here is the master bedroom. Okay, there’s enough room there for a king and two nightstands right, but then you have a window that’s kind of cockeyed because of this pop out here.So if we put the bed over for a queen and then we put the two nightstands, you may have room here for a chair, you know put it right in that window. Can we change the window treatments? You would change the window treatments? Oh god? Yes, Oh God, good yeah.This is a nice big, bathroom yeah, the lighting sucks, [, Music, ], one bedroom or two bedroom. Oh well. Maybe there’s room now. Can we change out the light fixtures? Please say yes: after taking a look at roses, new place, we decided to go back to her current residence.
The job was this: how much of her furniture could we transport to the new location, what was gonna fit and what was gonna look right? This is way higher than 34, that’s, a bummer. We had to work with a lot of what she had and this will work fine in the guest bedroom.It’s 141 and we have 152, but we can use all the artwork, the accessories, the lamps. This can be reused. I still like that. Leave the lights here. Leave them here. Here was the fun part in her master bedroom.She needed a queen-size bed rather than a king, that meant Oh bummer, Rebecca’s got to go shopping kind of feel like this might be a little too modern for her. This would be very nice soft leaving, This is Lauren’s first project that she’s managed so far, so good these nightstands are going to be centered perfectly on the window. We need to pull this sofa over. So this is the TV. These are the art pieces.Oh good, to see you guys, oh wait, you know how to do this right right, yeah! You got to do it a little bit. No, no! But yeah that’s right good! It’s like right. Okay, wimpy not acceptable inappropriate; okay! So now what you do is you look at my elbow don’t, look at my hand or my face, or anything else only look at my elbow ready and go for it ready go.Is that amazing all right Hector ready? Oh Hector, ready! Go! Oh good, lord Hector, [ Music ]. I just thought of something I’m completely wrong in this layout. There’s window treatments on either side of this, and they’re gonna go way beyond the bed.
They’re back. You made a mistake, so we need to move that over dad the guys left, [ Music ] – that looks nice with the sofa came down here. That looks nice. Thank you. What we’re trying to do now, is we’re trying to hang this mirror to be completely symmetrical with that one? Yes, so did she explain it to you quickly right the window treatment and it’s? Gon na go to here, so I want that bracket right there, [ Music ].What do you think looks good, looks good [, Music ], we ‘ Ve got a lot to do and we are running out of time. So what are you doing sitting here? You got work to do all right, [, Music, ]. Ah thanks guys and that pretty that was awesome.I’m starting to get excited. If we let him get that leopard in there he is never gonna. Let me live that down. He’s, gonna, be all over that we’d. Have to whitewash this thing? Yes, so it’s, so copper yeah! We needed you be a zebra.Did you not listen to me? Oh couldn’t, get better all right, don’t move. This is gonna, be good. You ready it’s great yeah, [, Music ]. Welcome. How are you Rose fighting? I can move him since you, you ‘Ve got this little guy. I think it might get in your way, but I thought you know we. I wanted to find a place for him and he actually makes a really good bench took your little guy. Oh yeah, on top of that table, and then I put a light behind it.I like just now a great all right. So here we’re gonna go. You’re, ready to see your new bedroom yeah yeah. This is the new one: [ Music ]. Do you like it? Oh yeah, I’m. Just glad you’re, not hurt
Oh, how do you like the TV, okay, yeah and then in the daytime this? This is a mirror yeah, which kind of gives you the impression yeah, that is symmetry and that mirror reflects this window. So when you’re standing over there looking in here, it really does look like two windows.I love the lamps and then look. You have a new bench over there. Oh now, look nice! Oh, oh! I can’t, see anything but oh it’s. Just beautiful my legs come on. Oh, I love it. It was in your bathroom, Here you go. Oh thank you. You’re, so welcome Averett, drink yeah. I mean they fill up the space fine, but I would leave him. I think they’re cute, no serious yeah. Take him out, and there’s a few little things that we can do still do you tell me about it? I’ll.Tell you about it! Oh, where’s, don’t see. Well, she’s out here. Let’s. Go talk! Oh okay! All right thanks, again rose lighting is so important in any design project, whether it be an apartment or a condo or a home.
I love how Rosa’s place turned out. However, if we were able to light up those amazing photographs, the art big art pieces we had, I think it would have looked even better. Leave me a comment below and let me know and let Rose know should Rebecca, be able to go in and add some lights.Alright, I hope you guys enjoy this today. Remember that design sessions are coming up. The next session is on outdoor decorating. I know a lot of you would love to see how my backyard turned out. I’m gonna.
