Sometimes a perfect design opportunity arises and you just have to jump on it. A dear friend of ours was looking for some help sprucing up her Ikea-filled apartment on a budget and was also about to fly out to a warm beach somewhere for a little family getaway. Though we only had a few days to prepare, it was a now or never situation so we made it happen! While she was sipping mojitos, we were able to completely take over her apartment and in just a few days turned the space into the warm and cheerful home she was dreaming of. Though it’s never easy to come home after a vacation, we were so happy to make her return a little brighter.
