Designing the Nursery, The Concept

Redesigning the office/guest bedroom into a nursery/guest bedroom has been an on & off 5 month project. My concept is to have a contemporary Peter Pan theme. I’m also thinking of balancing the fact that it’s also a guest bedroom. I’ve no intention of making it a literal Peter Pan motif but pick up some  inspiration from the Walt Disney’s Peter Pan pictures below:

From the above pictures, I came up w/ my color palette of Salem Blue, Butter, Pistachio Green & Snowy Mount:

My hubby painted the walls & we hired a wallpaper installer to hang the wallpaper we bought from Lowe’s. It’s a Damask print from York Wallcoverings.

I have 4 more weeks to finish this room before the baby comes. It’s really different when you’re designing for yourself & designing for a client.

Starting over again…

I had quite a productive weekend. I was able to help out my friend Karen with her shooting of Miss Mah Poo 2 with costuming and wardrobe; and my husband and I were able to finish painting the walls on the side of the stairs. That was a feat in itself because we also painted the risers and we used a glazing technique called colorwash.

Anyways, I think this website had been around since 2002. Life had taken over and I never got the time to update my site until now since I’m also maintaining www.filamartists.com, a collage of Filipino American artists and www.thea-dstudio.com, my work website. For some reason, my web files had been messed up and I was never been able to save my blog. It was also called, “The Journey: Biyaheng Langit Lang Po.” So, I consulted with tech support and I decided to reboot my website. Everything was gone. It’s like a phoenix rising from the ashes. The reason I’m updating this website is because a year ago, I was among the populace who had been given a pretty pink slip because of the country’s economic crisis and I suppose I turned it into an opportunity to go back and spend time with my art. And so, thea-rtist.com has been reborn today.

I suppose this is my website where I post my art portfolio and whenever I’m working on a new artwork.
