as mentioned in my previous APT. post, i'm partnering with one kings lane to makeover my apartment's living room! the process actually started back in october (which feels like ages ago!), when i was introduced to one of OKL's talented interior designers. you may or may not know that one kings lane offers complimentary design services through the studio, with physical locations in new york and san francisco, or you can virtually consult their studio team.
everything began with me prepping things on my end before our first consultation: i took before photos of my space, drew up a proper floor plan/blue print (since the building couldn't provide one), and measured every inch of the room. i also started pulling inspiration photos and "favoriting" every category of furniture (lighting, sofas, chairs, dining tables, art, rugs, you name it!) from OKL's vast selection.
for the sake of the final reveal, the shopping list & floor plans below are not my actual room, but you get the idea!
for some elements, i went in certain. others, i needed guidance from my designer, who was sincerely the most wonderful partner ever! i adore her and she absolutely understood my vision and style to a T. after we reviewed floor plans, before photos, and my favorites from the website, she worked her magic to present room mock-ups and a shopping list, all based on my needs and wants.
we did go through a few rounds of feedback and minor changes, which were collaborative and productive. i can't stress how professional, knowledgable, and purely positive the experience was. shop the look below:
