Residence Inn turned Stylish Studio

I wanted to show you a fun project that I finished a few weeks ago.  This apartment complex used to be a Residence Inn and they are soon going to be apartments to rent out!  I got to partner with Garrison Hullinger Interior Designs to style and merchandise this space.  Some updates were done like the walls and floors.  The bathroom and kitchen weren’t updated, but I still needed to style them to fit the studio apartment vibe.  Let’s see how it all turned out:

Here it is after! I’m so happy with how it turned out! Much lighter and lively!

The throw pillows on the sofa are here and here.


Here’s another before look at the front door from another angle including the fireplace.


And after! I added lots of greenery for two reasons. 1-The client liked that look and asked for it. 2-It was one of the few ways that I could sneak in color! ?


So many fun details.


This is a before picture to the right of where the bed is. It leads to a closet and the bathroom.


Isn’t that gallery wall awesome?! That was Garrison’s team’s idea! Such a great use of space!


Here’s a close up of the amazing bed!  I used this striped bedding and this khaki bedding.


Another angle of the bed. One side has a small nightstand, and the other is a desk. Great way to have multiple uses in a small studio.



Love all the small desk details.  The jar set is out of stock right now, but here’s something similar. 


Here’s the fireplace before. The command hooks made me chuckle.


Fireplace after. I did a super simple mantel. Just a piece of wood and these great farmhouse looking brackets. So easy!


I also found a cute industrial hook to hold the tongs.  Here’s a similar one.


Here’s a close up of the TV stand shelves.


This is usually a forgotten space in a lot of homes, it’s a great place to store keys/mail or add some greenery!


Here’s one of the few pics that I have from the kitchen.


I am still trying to edit the photos of the kitchen and the bathroom, those areas are tricky because they didn’t have any natural light.  Once I’m done, I’ll update the post!  Hopefully you like the studio apartment’s new look!  Let me know what you think!

Love you all!
