Bedroom Makeover

Welcome to another one of my favorite makeovers ever. A ‘before and after’ that once again makes me want to redo my bedroom and start all over.

The clients, Emily and Gary gave us free reign on color palette so we chose to do this nude, coral, mossy green, gold, wood and white story which felt fresh and happy and yet gender neutral. They needed a lot of storage, so we reupholstered their storage trunk in a super lucscious peach velvet and brought in some nightstands that could hold a lot.

The nightstands are vintage with these insane nobs and lots of storage.  The wood lamps on top are from, Lawson Fenning and help bring in some masculinity into the space with their chunky woodiness. We kept the bedding white and simple and then just mixed some nude and coral textured blankets from Target in there to soften the huge bed of whiteness.

On the opposite wall we had these two ikea dressers that they liked the size, shape and function of – but we really didn’t like the generic ‘dark wood’ color. We were going for something really bright, happy, airy and clean, and these really dark dressers brought in HUGE contrast which made the room look and feel a lot smaller.  So we decided to rent a sprayer from Lowes and spray paint them both in ‘Pensive Sky’ by Behr. Its a really light swedish gray, that leans towards blue.

For the windows which were done by Decorview we chose a curtain for the sliding glass door with a simple traditional pleat to give it some fulness and femininity but then we put it on a really modern rod.  For the transom we chose a roman shade in matching fabric.

Well there you have it. The whole makeover was just awesome; the family was so deserving and so lovely to work with. The room turned out just so calm, sophisticated and pretty.
