I’m, Rebecca Robson interior designer businesswoman and mother join me as I take you through my projects, my life and what keeps me driven to design hi guys share Robson here, welcome back from your spring or Easter or otherwise, hopefully, enjoyable break me have Been frantically busy here ever up some design now, coming back from our break, Grayson’s been busy with his paintings for the Desert Rose in Kate’s been all over the showrooms map with follow up for our current projects.
Scott! Well, I think he’s been going to early menopause, so we’ve been leaving him alone and Rebecca. I don’t, think she’s, been feeling so hot since making our Easter baskets. So far we’ve eaten all of my props and we haven’t gotten anything done, So today I thought I’d, take over and show you guys my past bedroom, my past apartment and my current one I’ve, been working with Robeson design is the digital media and public relations manager for the past six months.But I’ve, been the beneficiary of my mother’s, great design talents, all my life, the room, my mom designed for me during my high school years, really set the bar high. She installed floor-to-ceiling mirrors, which made the room feel much larger, of course, but also made it feel very elegant.She removed my closet doors and made a comfortable area for me to do my schoolwork, but what truly sealed the deal and forever spoiled me was my closet. A dedicated dressing room, full wardrobe station, again floor-to-ceiling mirrors and amenities for all of my clothing and accessories.
It was a dream if you want to watch the full video of this room tour it’ll, be in the description box below moving out and onto college. Mom came to the rescue once again this time. In my dorm room we were conservative with our resources.We even split the one duvet cover we had into two throws for the end of each bed. This greatly improved the color and pattern balance in the room. So if my high-school room raised the bar, my first apartment blew the hat off of the houseWe fabricated the reclaimed wood wall in our living room, which we duplicated conceptually in the bedroom. We hardwired in a new chandelier and pendant lights. We literally changed everything and thenSo I just got an interesting a little letter in the mail. I’m at my apartment, another 12-month lease. I need to find something that’s, not too much, which basically means in three weeks we have to be.I have to be out and attack tomorrow, so we had to take it all down apart and restore it to its pre Robeson state. It was tragic, [, Music ], but I did find something small, yes, but in the best location and at a price I could afford on my own.
So here’s, the deal these used to be in Sharra’s place, and they were hardwired with all this stuff right. What I need is now for these to be not hardwired, for what do you call a software doctor dr. by dr.electric, oh, that was, I was back. Did I just walk right into that big? We made it a point to use as many existing pieces from my past apartment as possible. It was necessary to buy a couple items, but not too many and we went for sale pieces on the things we did purchase coming together.We only had a short amount of time, but I wanted him to come and get measurements of things that we still need. I’ll write this down share with you everything you write on [, Music ]. You did not make my bed is really weird about her bed.You guys right now, I’m thinking. A fan would be great here, uh stay where you are and Todd go up just a week. You’re. Just playing with me. You didn’t move that at all, are you ready for my new apartment tour? Let’s.Take a look! Well, hello! Welcome to my lovely beach treehouse, the challenge with a studio. Is you have to take one room essentially and make it into a multi-purpose space and share his case? She needed a bedroom, a living room, a place to entertain and watch television, a home office and a closet all in one room.
So over here I have my lovely drapes. These are kind of like a linen soft, very flowy. I live by the beach, so I didn’t want anything too thick. All of these things were actually from my old place. My mom thought that we couldn’t, actually do it or we didn’t buy anything new and we pretty much did I mean we used all the great furniture I had in my last place and made it work, which that is An accomplishment for a ropes and woman, okay, we like to shop when it comes to color selection in a place like this, it’s very neutral and very light in color.I typically like to add pops of color with pillows art flowers. Things like that, in this case, we decided to keep it all very monochromatic, and one of my favorite things about this room sitting in this little retro chair is these cool bottles.I just think these are so pretty and putting them in the window. You can appreciate them from the outside as well as from the inside, and they are bejeweled okay. So let me take you over here to the other part of my room.
If you haven’t noticed this is kind of the great room. The very same bedding that Shera had in her last apartment – and she has now, of course, her fabulous reclaimed – wood, headboard, all white bedding.I love all white bedding, some really nice. This actually was a comforter that my mom cut into two and used it kind of. As an end cap and then took this used to actually be one pillow, one grande like eurofan, and she cut it into two that way, I have a nice little accent pillow, to throw my bed.These actually used to be in my kitchen in my old place. These were repurposed. We used the cables to kind of run it up back behind the mirror. So you don’t, see the actual cord running down the entire wall.That’s kind of a good tip that I learned from my mother. Gee, how did this work? I don’t, have my glasses on [ Music ] Vin’s; bins, bins, bins bin, so that’s. What it’s all about over here, as you can see, even more bins on the side place to put my workout clothes, I have a lot of stuff.
How cool is this when she has to go, do her laundry? She pulls out one basket and good to go. This is my great shower that looks like I found this. Don’t be confused. It is this small in real life I [ Music ] found some little white shelves and I stacked them.On top of each other, and when she’s able to have extra toilet paper, a cute little look at this, that’s, resin fake she doesn’t have to worry about it dying. She might need dust it every once in a while, but it doesn’t have to worry about a dying.The entire apartment is about 350 square feet, so it’s, a very, very small area. That being said, we’ve had to do a couple different, really strategic things to make the space feel bigger. These needs to have cabinet doors on them, much like the one over here, and it just felt very constricted and kind of came out at you and she had the idea to open them up, take the doors off and actually paint the entire thing all white.If you have some bright, colored dishes, it’s, actually a fun touch. This wall was just a plain blank wall and, as you can tell, I have a bit of a dilemma because I ‘ Ve got a cabinet that opens here and a fridge that opens here clever with that horse nice little anthro apron.How could any girl have an apartment without her anthro apron? You know I mean here was the last piece we added to this place and it so necessary. I think if the owners of this apartment are watching, they should buy these permanently for these places.
