Before Brooke Walker is the host of Studio 5 and is one of our amazing clients who has been so wonderful to us and such a delight to work with. Her home is gorg-e-ous! She has such a great eye and her syle is classy elegent. She saw this room divider / screen at a local thrift store and knew exactly what she wanted to with it. She had an amazing vision and lugged this gazillion pound piece into our home.
She has a guest bedroom in her home with charming furniture that was her grandmother's. The dresser and nightstand is creamy with outlines of gold around the drawers. She has a huge gold picture frame hanging above the bed. I mean it is just amazing and beautiful and elegant and it too belonged to her grandmother! She has used colors of a deep deep yellow and blue in her bed quilt and knew that this screen would match perfectly in painted cream with a touch of gold! The details at the top are so feminine and hardly noticeable in the before picture. The gold trim gives it such an elegant polished finish.
While these were sitting in our home waiting to be completed I cannot tell you all of the makeover images that popped into my head! This thing is so functional!
I do not think I have seen a piece go from super masculine to delicate and feminine like this one! Brooke made us aware that one of the golfer sheets that were originally inserted match her grandfather's headstone. Is that not such a great story!
We got a text from Brooke last night letting us know that she couldn't be happier and that is exactly what we love to hear. I cannot wait to see her room complete once she finds her perfect chair to set close to this wall screen. This was such a great find and Brooke had such a great vision and it was fun to watch the transformation!
