The Wheels on the Bus: Part 2

The bus is finally finished!!! Yep…finito, done, complete! It has been a long process, but I am so happy with the way everything turned out.

This bus is occupied by 12 men at all times so I had to design accordingly. My thought process for the design was the feel of a luxury hotel that is neither masculine nor feminine, but nice, clean, simple and luxurious. I chose the dark wood finish first then the leather, flooring, fabrics, etc.

Have a look at the finished product!

This is the front lounge.

The view you get right when you walk on the bus.

Detailed shot of the only patterned fabric I chose and one of my favorite things on the bus…the sconces from Restoration Hardware complete with Edison bulbs.

I love the gray barnwood-esque floors against the camel leather couches, chocolate brown walls, and amazingly soft fur pillow!

Image

The kitchen area is definitely one of my favorite parts of the bus. You can never go wrong with white subway tile and charcoal gray grout 🙂

The bunk area was hard to photograph because there is no natural light, but here it is. I chose a gray check sheet with a soft, navy blue pintuck comforter. Ignore the creases in the sheets 🙂

The shower: Once again I chose subway tile, because its my favorite, with a hexagon carrera marble floor.

And one more look at the front lounge.Image

Well, that sums up the bus tour. I hope you liked it! I’m so glad I was given the opportunity to do this project and can’t wait for what’s next 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

The Wheels on the Bus

Go round and round…I’m excited to share with you guys that I have had the privilege of designing/decorating Newsong’s brand new tour bus!

I was very flattered/intimidated to be asked to take on such a big job! I’ve clearly never done a tour bus before so I was definitely a little nervous, but it’s like a home on wheels so I just pretended like I was decorating a house 🙂 I’ve had a lot of fun throughout the whole process and seen just how much work goes into building tour buses. I picked everything from the wood finish on all the walls, to the floors, to the leather for the couches, the fabric for window valances and bunk curtains, sconces, countertops, backsplash…you get the picture…I had to pick everything! I’m excited because the bus will be done soon and I can’t wait to see how everything comes together!

For now, I’ll share some pictures of the bus the first time I saw it; the bunk area was already built out and some of the wood paneling was in.

Hopefully very soon I will have ‘After’ pictures to share with you!! Hey, maybe after this I’ll be an interior designer for tour buses 😉
