Athena’s room before
We did a complete gut renovation of Athena’s room, removing every piece of red plaster and stripping the entire space down to the studs before beginning to build it back up. Athena’s room received new sheetrock, paint, flooring, light fixtures, and of course furniture.

I had a vision for Athena’s room to be a room she could enjoy now, but also grow up in. I wanted to incorporate pieces that make up the perfect little girl’s room now, but are so high quality and timeless that they will last her for years to come.

So I knew I could trust the quality and durability of their pieces, which is exactly what I was going for in her room as well. I also loved that I could go into their local showroom to chat with the
