You fabulous people may remember our pool room addition we just added to the back of our home.
We’ve come a long way from the beginning of things. But we love the way it’s looking now.
When we first took possession of our house, it looked like this.
So we were more than happy to say goodbye to 1976 and bring it up to date to something much more functional.
The inside holds a dining/entertaining area for us, along with a sitting area and one of our very favorite pieces… a fireplace.
We love that our room reflected one of FrogTape®’s trends of the year: Bohemian Bold. We think the space definitely has a bohemian vibe. But what we loved the most, was using FrogTape® to apply one of their selected colors: SW Pure White.
Beyond the big changes and wow moments, there was one tool we loved so much that really helped us get there.
Whether it was in the design process, confirming a measurement, or figuring out the layout, we loved using FrogTape®. It’s so useful in so many ways!
Here’s our space before we started. We used FrogTape® to make sure the positioning was just right. This is a little trick we use with our clients to help them visualize where and how things will work. There’s always a roll of Frog tape nearby whenever we’re making a site visit. But we knew we wanted a generous gas fireplace with a certain design aesthetic, as well as a place to hide a television for entertainment, so this really helped us get it right and was easy for the framers when they came in. It’s a great way to make sure the measurements translate off paper.
It gave us the sharpest lines and saved so much time for such a great look!
We even used FrogTape® to cover up more spaces we didn’t want covered in that beautiful white.
Or to cover the white when we applied some color to the ceiling. There was a lot of trimming out and work to be done in this space, and it was our go-to tool for all of the process.
Is there anything more satisfying than that sharp line at the end?
The tape was also amazing as it held those last pieces of marble in place while the thin-set dried with no worry of damage to our gorgeous tile.
We’re all about that multitasking.
Slowly but surely, the space started to come together. And from the trim to the mantel and everything in between, we had some sharp, beautiful lines to show for it.
So we’re thrilled to show off one of the design trends this year for 2020, as an inspiration space.
Why are we sharing? Because FrogTape® is relaunching the FrogTape® Challenge! You may remember when we participated a few years ago, and created this really fun plaid accent wall for Aiden’s room.
It’s still one of our favorite spaces.
Some awesome competitors will be coming together again this year, and we cant wait to see what they do with their Frogtape®!
So in the meantime, be sure to soak up that inspiration.
We loved using their tape to get this project finished up. Our number one go-to for a project.
Be sure to check out the FrogTape® site for the trends of the year and all the competitors who will be participating, coming soon!
We can’t wait to see all the fun details!
Have an inspired day!
