Design Board: For Belle and Alexandra

May 29, 2010

My Associate Designer Belle and my Personal Assistant Alexandra recently became roomies when they moved in together into a two bedroom apartment.  Today I visited it for the first time and I was inspired to do a design for them.

I was inspired by their personalities; both girls are bubbly and happy, both are sophisticated.  Belle leans toward modern design and Alex toward something more traditional and romantic.

I start with paint color… what could be more appropriate than pink for happy, bubbly girls?  Nothing.
