I don't know if you've noticed but there's a very large and prominent sloping ceiling in this room that will pose some design challenges but if there's anyone who can overcome it it's your alligator nugget so I believe in you help me obi- wan kenobi, you are my only hope. the case in his master

bedroom

and this is where the bed has to go it's not going to fit anywhere else so i knew i had to work with this grounded wall and do something interesting and cool. I've been pinning pictures for a while of rooms where the ceiling and walls are the same colour, so it's like putting a whole can of paint on each wall, all the trim and the result is a very

dark

and

moody

feeling of space, i feel like it looks very sophisticated, british type i would say i guess that's what i really like about british studios it seems i want to do this in danny's space i think it's the perfect opportunity to do it because that sloping wall with the sloped ceiling is very uncomfortable and if I paint the walls it's like I have to paint that wall to be able to as well as do everything and do and do the whole ceiling.

What I love about Audible is that it lets you listen to your favorite audiobooks wherever you are, whatever you're doing, so maybe you. Taking a long car ride to somewhere audible again allows you to hear stories wherever you are, which I think is awesome. audible members get one credit each month good for any audiobook they want, as well as access to their new plus catalog that includes fitness-guided podcasts and meditation shows sleep tracks and more elena and i are currently listening to the novel beach read that it has so many amazing reviews and i love having the option to listen to a book instead of listening to your music sometimes its nice to put our audiobook on and kick back and relax if you want to get a free audiobook or a free 30 day trial to explore their additional catalogue, visit www.audible.com alexandra gator or text alexandra gator at 500 500. that's it for me lets go back to listen to our audiobook and what the gps says 20 minutes until we get to danny's see you there we get to danny burke's house and i'm so excited to look, you dressed for the occasion, excuse me, oh, my eyebrows shot up, as did jayla. right now danny put up the floors as you guys saw they look so beautiful i love the original hardwood floors you'll notice the walls haven't been painted that's what we're going to do today so danny and elena and i'm going to tackle all this space and i'm so excited because we're painting the ceiling and the wall the exact same color danny has had his reservations about this i think it's going to look so good it'll be a mood for sure i also want to point out that danny and i are wearing the exact same outfit so i'm w Listening to her merch she makes it a messy merch i plugged in a couple weeks ago and we're wearing overalls.

elena is hip and cool and young so she knows everything she knows all the trends it's a lot like harry potter catchphrase yeah that's not the wizard gone wrong he wasn't in slytherin your apprehension has subsided i feel pretty diminished ok yeah ok i think he feels moody and funny, like he's some kind of fun room.
You know, I love that we're done painting and I'm really happy with the color. It's still drying right there, so don't worry about it, but I love it, I love it. makes such a statement before I'm done for the first day I'm just going to put down the rug make sure it fits make sure it looks good maybe bring in the end tables I have to put a couple things down to get ready for tomorrow because tomorrow is best day is style day perfect size i was a little worried it was going to be too big but it's perfect ok nightstands so i really like color blocking right now that's why i chose this green moss i love this i love it so much it really adds to the l ike academy come to my studio kind of vibe you know thank you so much for the article on these beautiful nightstands and this beautiful chair modern furniture because i have such a bold vision for all color and pattern in this space i needed to layer classic pieces that would look timeless but also a bit mundane and i think these pieces do exactly that, that's it. day one very successful day it's all coming together and I'll see you tomorrow morning hey guys I'm so excited because it's day two we're back at danny's house she's not helping at all today she just helping us with the painting so it will really be a surprise hopefully we add a floral wallpaper on the back of the wall it's a traditional wallpaper so we'll use a paste but honestly using a paste is pretty simple no there's room for like a really beautiful kind of statement headboard so I thought a good compromise was to do this along the back wall in vertical panels let's do this the first thing I'm going to do is make a rough cut along the bottom of the wallpaper because the wallpaper is quite long just a reminder if you are renting this is not a tenant friendly solution because it is quite difficult to remove wallpaper that has been applied with d wallpaper adhesive e the wall whereas the peel and stick options I normally use are really easy to remove and don't leave any residue behind so I'm going to take my wallpaper as a literal goo and put it all on the wall and you'll want a lot of this like you don't want to lose any place, right?
Don't be afraid to use more than you think you need, it might seem counterintuitive to slap this all over the wall, but you want a lot, so once you have all the goo on the wall, that's when you want to put up your first panel of wallpaper. down and you just want to use a cloth and just smooth the cloth over the paper it will help get any air bubbles out and just make sure it's really stuck down so we have a little bit of excess at the bottom I'm going to wait until it's dry I tried from cutting it and it's still a little wet from the wallpaper adhesive so I'll just let it dry and then at the end I'll probably go in and pin them all down on the bottom let's move on to the next one thanks to Lavettes for sending this lavette wallpaper its been a place i have used in a couple of recent

makeover

s including my fridge makeover i wallpapered the front of my fridge and their selection is amazing there are boho patterns there are patterns vintage like this beautiful floral we're using there's more like modern patterns you can find like whatever style you're looking for and the quality of your paper is amazing last panel coming up so for the corner I'm going to take my flat head tool here and just i'm going to fold the paper right in the corner of the wall we're done so all the edges have been trimmed i know me and elena are starting to build the bed just a simple metal frame i feel like with thewallpaper if you only had a bed frame that would work like i dont think you really need a headboard but danny really liked this bed and ikea was kind enough to give it to us so this is from ikea super simple super cheap and i think it will look great.
I moved the bed to the right and it actually makes the whole room feel so much bigger when the bed was closer to the chair there wasn't much room to walk. here and it felt a little closed off so now there is ample space for people to walk to the other side of the bed ok let's bring the mattress this is super cozy I have to say oh my gosh , i was like i thought you were going to jump on me we ordered wiring sconces instead of sconce plugs but actually i think it was a happy accident because i think the sconces would have piled up this wall so i went home shopping from danny.
She has all these beautiful vintage style kerosene lamps. it will look so beautiful on nightstands and it just adds to the mood this is like what i know you told me yesterday what is dark academy dark academy light yeah mm-hmm right wow this really smells like kerosene so yeah i'm gonna place these on the side tables and then i think i'm going to start hanging some art we're almost there we're almost done so a while ago for my editor james room i actually rearranged a bunch of old art pieces and i thought they would work great in this space instead and i actually like to keep the pictures in them which i feel is weird as you usually go to the thrift store to save the frames but i think it adds to the quirky charm of this room. danny also had this sweetie which is elena i put this in her bedroom as her old bedroom makeover and i love this i think it works so well with the room i found another vintage light danny has a lot of vintage lights and this one is actually um used a light bulb and i thought it would probably be more practical than having two kerosene lamps so i'm going to move this one over to that side and this one will stay here so i'm doing a trick that danny taught me so you want to Use painter's tape and then find the center between each hook.
Put the tape on the wall. Punch a hole in the tape. adding a striped bedspread I've been loving playing with the pattern recently and I really love how the stripes contrast with the vintage floral wallpaper but somehow it works it just adds to all the kind of layering that's going on in this space and layers are what make a space feel real very textured and very cozy i am adding a bench for guests to put their luggage just a place to unpack also this basket with guest towels and some other beautiful accessories that will really tie it together this space the time has come i am i was feeling so nervous because danny had his doubts about this space and danny is not one to be ashamed to tell me how come she is so honest which is a quality i love about her so if she she hates it, she'll let you know, but before we reveal the space to her, let's take a look at what this room looked like before we emptied these weird blue-grey walls, you've got that huge I lean into the room which throws everything out of the design, it really was a blank slate, never had.
You've surprised me before. Okay, are you ready? No, it's weird, right, it's weird to be in the I know, um, you felt like this was a risk, yeah, I like to persevere. That, just like he put all the color together, this little basket is for the guests' towels. I love that place so they like to hang their bathrobe towels and you found a place for my little girl. The decor turned out great here because I just bought your house. I just got it from my grandmother. That little lamp is beautiful and I didn't know where to put it.
It looks a bit like b&b products. I'll stay here when I just need to get away. My mom will be excited. She literally texted me today. a departure from my normal decorating style. I would love to know in the comments below if you like this style. If you want to see me tackle more decorating styles outside of my comfort zone. I hope I got this room done south.
