I have received a lot of inquiries about making a dual purpose room. Many of my clients and friends still live in a city and need a way to use their space creatively. A few tips! I first ask the client about how the plan on using the room most. I look at it from a percentage perspective and that helps me understand how I am going to divide and treat the space. Then I measure, make note of light and windows, etc. From there we decorate. I choose things that are neutral or a little less obvious. I also pick a lot of items that can be used two ways. For example, ottomans can be turned into a luggage stand for guests. Or end tables with drawers can be a space to put clothes. Below is a nursery/guest room I am working on. 80% of the time it will be used as a nursery so I didn't want to take away from that feel but at the same time wanted to make sure if a guest is staying in there, it felt comfortable and grown up. We decided on a crib with wheels so it can be rolled out when a guest comes to stay and went for some more mature accent furniture. See below!
