The library is done. Down to the wire like always!
Swedish photographer Anna Maria (Instagram @annamariafotograf) came here at the last minute to shoot so we could include the artwork from our charity which just arrived the night before and was the perfect missing piece for the room.
If you are new to this blog… WELCOME!
I’m Jill Sorensen (Instagram @jillsorensen) a Swedish interior designer living in LA. I have a lifestyle label JILL SORENSEN LIFESTYLE offering modern bedding and home decor ([email protected]jillsorensenlifestyle).
The room I tackled was the additional room created in the living room when we renovated a few years back. While we’ve been waiting for some building permits it turned in to a temporary work space and could not have been more depressing. I wanted to turn it into a fun, colorful library/guest bedroom that was not boring.
Here was the design plan (which changed a bit..)
Here is the room today…
Faux animal head from The Mine.
All animal heads and horns are not real.
Artwork by Events by Andre Wells for Knock Out Abuse Against Women (a charity my friend and I started years ago to help victims of domestic violence.) I just had to have it in the room to stand in solidarity with all the brave women in this #metoo wave sweeping the western world at the moment.
This marble fireplace is from the 60’s and was originally in the living room but with the addition of this extra room it’s the library. We just got it to work this week.
The mirror along with many other items in the room have been used in previous homes I’ve lived in. Before using anything new I always like to reuse items to see f they can fit in to any new design ideas and therefore get a new life.
Faux plants from The Mine.
Article has really chic and well priced mid century items which were all perfect for the room.
And this is how to turn the library in to a cozy guest bedroom….
Our adorable custom made sleeper sofa in yellow with black buttons turns in to a comfortable bed in a flash!
Here is is with my new bedding design VICTORY in black.
This little room becomes a fun little bedroom.
Silken Solid Sheet Set from Annie Selke in pale blue adds just the right hue and glam touch.
I’m super excited about this bedding, we’re just finalizing what colors to stock it in. It looks so great in every color!
And last a quick look where it came from.
Originally we added the extra room two years ago..
It became a temporary work space while we waited for building permits and it got worse by the day!
It looked like this six weeks ago.
Check out all the fun makeovers by the rest of the group!
