Designer Jenny Sanchez and I connected through Instagram recently, where I found her most recent client project, a room makeover she did for her friend Maria Ortiz. Jenny's main goal was to create a French Glam Vintage look, which was inspired by a simple Chanel bag.
This 120 square foot spare bedroom was once a storage catch-all for Maria's stuff, but her dream was to turn it into a dressing room, a sophisticated spot to apply makeup, prepare for the day, and relax.
Without a budget to speak of, Jenny faced the challenge of redesigning this room head to toe using what Maria already owned. "The only item purchased for the entire project was the paint. I used Behr's Silver Drop to give the room a more modern feel. Shopping around Maria's house as well as sorting/editing her stuff was key. She already had great pieces, so it came together quite nicely." Luckily, Jenny already knew her style, which made the process move quickly. The most significant thing in the room was her vintage vanity (which she's had since high school), so Jenny made this the statement piece of the room.
This just goes to show that when you really desire a change in your home, it doesn't have to cost a lot.
Thank you Maria + Jenny!
