I am thrilled to announce that I am participating in this year’s FrogTape Paintover Challenge!
If you are not familiar with FrogTape, it is THE BEST painter’s tape on the market. You know I love paint, and I have been using FrogTape for years. It is my go-to painter’s tape for all of my projects.
There are five bloggers participating in this challenge, and we are all completing a one room makeover challenge using FrogTape and interior designer Taniya Nayak’s 2019 Design Trends.
I decided to makeover my home library. I recently replaced the carpet with tile, and I want the rest of the room to feel more stately.
Here is a before of the space:
The bookshelves are also going to get a makeover. I played it safe when I originally painted them this pale gray. I want them to be more of a focal point, so they are going to be repainted.
Each blogger was assigned to one of FrogTape’s five 2019 Design Trends, received a bucket of painting supplies and a $1,000 budget to redesign a room.
I received the design trend Luxe Modern. The matchy-matchy days of keeping one specific metal is long gone, and the hot trend for 2019 is to mix and match metals and mediums.
Colors: Bronze, Rose Gold, Matte Gold, Pewter, Iron
Patterns: Metal is incredible rigid and durable yet has the capablity to mold into any shape you desire. Geometric shapes for hardware and wall applications are what we are seeing pop up everywhere these days.
Vibe: striking unique juxtaposition bold statement
Overall Style: Modern glam and minimalist with a bold statement
When I envision Luxe Modern in my home, I plan to mix the old and new for a fun juxtaposition. I am using lots of golds with touches of silver and copper and luxurious velvet fabrics. I am mixing whites and blacks for a bold statement, and I am adding a metallic wall treatment.
I was inspired by a recent trip to the Blackwell Hotel in Chicago. I love the wall treatment in their restaurant and how the medallions rest where the lines meet.
Next week I will be sharing my progress of the space and in two weeks voting will begin! I would love your vote. If I win, FrogTape will gift one of my favorite charities (Second Harvest Food Bank) $10,000! $10,000 will provide 40,000 meals to people in need, and you can help feed them by voting for my library!
