When I was a little girl in grade school and even through high school, I used to rearrange my room almost every other weekend. I would make my younger brother Blake, who was 2 years younger than me, hold the new poster, sign, or whatever it was on the potential location as I took steps back to see if the new arrangement would stick.
I’d move a heavy bookshelf from one end of the room to the other so often that eventually, when we moved houses and tried to transport it down the front of the stairs, it crashed and flattened into an unrepairable mess. Rearranging my room was practically a hobby. Just like the family event of vacuuming our rooms every other weekend.
In high school, I wanted to be an interior decorator. I taped magazine ads as borders around my room. I had a wall covered in “signs” from friends in high school. (In preppy school you drew signs with markers and the more you had the more popular you sort of were/felt/whatever). I thought I had a kack for interior design and I must admit, I sort of do even though I never made it a career.
So, when Designer Blvd. asked me to shoot their latest interior decorating project for an upcoming 202 Magazine issue, I was excited to see what they could do for this little girl’s room. When I saw it I nearly died. Isn’t it just adorable?
