Through this hot, hot summer I have been part of a local community project sponsored by St Louis At Home Magazine. A group of twenty designers are working to renovate and update fourteen apartments for The Repertory Theatre of St Louis. These are the apartments used to house the actors and directors for the Reps productions.
Each apartment has been assigned a designer to complete the transformation. The update includes new kitchen, bath, furnishings, window treatments, the whole nine yards.
My apartment is on the second floor of the mid century structure overlooking the garden area. As you can see work is well underway.
The bathroom was taken down to the studs. As of today the sub floor, dry wall and tub are in. By the end of the week the floor and wall tile as well as the vanity will be installed.
The kitchen is close to being completed. I'll have photos of that soon.
I have chosen to have carpet installed throughout the space. The bedroom window will be covered in a functional treatment made from a camel colored glazed cotton. I'll be ready for the window treatments in about two weeks.
One of the elements I'll be using in my design is the wonderful zebra wallcovering from Scalamandre. It will be on the wall of the dining area.
The chrysanthemum pattern from Osborne & Little will be an accent fabric in the living room.
This zebra patterned outdoor fabric from Scalanmandre will make a bold statement as the bath's shower curtain.
I'll have another update soon.
