Small Bedroom Makeover | Small Apartment | Interior Design



hi I'm Rebecca Robson welcome back to Robson design today I'm going to show you a really fun project we did a makeover on a bedroom as well as the rest of a condo in a retirement home for a friend of mine yes a lot of you if you've been watching my videos you've seen in several of them my friend Rose I think there's been probably five or six projects I've done for Rose over the years this was one of our earlier projects where we did her condo and you guys might remember this one I took her husband's old condo and turned his bedroom into something much more sophisticated a little more Ralph Lauren 15 years later she's my longest-running client 16 years 17 years good lord she's moving into a retirement home and guess what she called her old friend Rebecca yep I'm gonna help her so I'm gonna take you along for the ride and let's give a thumbs up for Rose all right so today's video oh my gosh this is such a fun project this is archive footage from three years ago I was fatter and I was older today is the first day this is not working so do you want me to talk louder you think about this loud as you work they give you $600 for dinner alone and they also have two moms I like that you can go through your $600 there alone got your name this is a nice size yeah it's a nice size so your mom is racing outside which would you use more the leather do you sit in a leather chair a lot is that your favorite spot no do you sit in the shays ever no do you ever sit I really use my bedroom all the time well then let's put a bed in here is the master bedroom okay there's enough room there for a king and two nightstands right but then you have a window that's kind of cockeyed because of this pop out here so if we put the bed over for a queen and then we put the two nightstands you may have room here for a chair you know put it right in that window can we change the window treatments you would change the window treatments oh god yes Oh God good yeah this is a nice big bathroom yeah the lighting sucks one bedroom or two bedroom oh well maybe there's room now can we change out the light fixtures please say yes after taking a look at roses new place we decided to go back to her current residence the job was this how much of her furniture could we transport to the new location what was gonna fit and what was gonna look right this is way higher than 34 that's a bummer we had to work with a lot of what she had and this will work fine in the guest bedroom it's 141 and we have 152 but we can use all the artwork the accessories the lamps this can be reused I still like that leave the lights here leave them here here was the fun part in her master bedroom she needed a queen-size bed rather than a king that meant Oh bummer Rebecca's got to go shopping kind of feel like this might be a little too modern for her this would be very nice soft leaving this is Lauren's first project that she's managed so far so good these nightstands are going to be centered perfectly on the window we need to pull this sofa over so this is the TV these are the art pieces oh good to see you guys oh wait you know how to do this right right yeah you got to do it a little bit no no but yeah that's right good it's like right okay wimpy not acceptable inappropriate okay so now what you do is you look at my elbow don't look at my hand or my face or anything else only look at my elbow ready and go for it ready go is that amazing all right Hector ready Oh Hector ready go oh good lord Hector I just thought of something I'm completely wrong in this layout there's window treatments on either side of this and they're gonna go way beyond the bed they're back you made a mistake so we need to move that over dad the guys left that looks nice with the sofa came down here that looks nice thank you what we're trying to do now is we're trying to hang this mirror to be completely symmetrical with that one yes so did she explain it to you quickly right the window treatment and it's gonna go to here so I want that bracket right there what do you think looks good looks good we've got a lot to do and we are running out of time so what are you doing sitting here you got work to do all right ah thanks guys and that pretty that was awesome I'm starting to get excited if we let him get that leopard in there he is never gonna let me live that down he's gonna be all over that we'd have to whitewash this thing yes so it's so copper yeah we needed you be a zebra did you not listen to me Oh couldn't get better all right don't move this is gonna be good you ready it's great yeah welcome how are you Rose fighting I can move him since you you've got this little guy I think it might get in your way but I thought you know we I wanted to find a place for him and he actually makes a really good bench took your little guy oh yeah on top of that table and then I put a light behind it I like just now a great all right so here we're gonna go you're ready to see your new bedroom yeah yeah this is the new one do you like it oh yeah I'm just glad you're not hurt oh how do you like the TV okay yeah and then in the daytime this this is a mirror yeah which kind of gives you the impression yeah that is symmetry and that mirror reflects this window so when you're standing over there looking in here it really does look like two windows I love the lamps and then look you have a new bench over there oh now look nice oh oh I can't see anything but oh it's just beautiful my legs come on oh I love it it was in your bathroom here you go oh thank you you're so welcome Averett drink yeah I mean they fill up the space fine but I would leave him I think they're cute no serious yeah take him out and there's a few little things that we can do still do you tell me about it I'll tell you about it Oh where's don't see well she's out here let's go talk oh okay all right thanks again rose lighting is so important in any design project whether it be an apartment or a condo or a home I love how Rosa's place turned out however if we were able to light up those amazing photographs the art big art pieces we had I think it would have looked even better leave me a comment below and let me know and let Rose know should Rebecca be able to go in and add some lights alright I hope you guys enjoy this today remember that design sessions are coming up the next session is on outdoor decorating I know a lot of you would love to see how my backyard turned out I'm gonna take you step by step doing everything that I did even with demonstrations you're gonna love it remember if you cannot watch it live because it is live stream you could always watch the recorded version go to my website now at www.opm.gov/openseason did this job first time there were to be a project manager and she was amazing so give Lauren a thumbs up alright you guys you know I love you right I've told you that right okay yeah

    Very heart warming that your skill afforded her the ability to bring so many of her favorite furnishings as she enters this season of her life. It is so difficult on seniors to downsize and to part with treasured items. Your incredible talent transformed her new apartment into a mini version of her beautiful home. Way to go! So happy I found your videos, Rebecca Robeson?!

    O my gosh sure she should have lights what she wanted this what was there was like garden lights from 70s . Aufol that they dont aloud her to do it in appartment for what she pay . Hate retirement projects are depressing and isolating ppl I stead helping them. Place of ppl should be in community and around familly . But i love her furniture are amazing pieces .
