Before & After Master Bedroom

We just finished up with a master bedroom installation so I wanted to share ‘before’ and ‘afters.’  There’s  still some art to be hung but you’ll get the idea.  My clients’ bedroom is pretty large and we loved their tufted headboard.  My clients kept their existing dressers, nightstands and bed, and we added the rest.  Their old room felt a bit dark and didn’t seem to fit with my client’s personality.  She’s so sunny & cheerful and is drawn to warm colors and light so I wanted to create a space that suited her.  She was looking for warm & fresh & relaxing.  Here’s the room before:


 And here it is now:
The bedding is by Les Indiennes and I want it. A hand blockprinted quilt overlays a blockprinted duvet cover in a smaller pattern.  I had so much fun making that bed!!!  We replaced the original sconces with iron ones from Pottery Barn and had the walls painted a soft cream.  I topped the nightstands with vintage yellow vases and leaves from outside.
I love the ruffly linen bench at the end of the bed. It adds just the right amount of femininity to the room.
Here’s the window nook before:
And here is is now:
I love the idea of two chairs and an ottoman in a master bedroom.  (The perfect spot to read books and play footsie! 😉  …Or more likely in real life, the spot to cozy up with the kids or to throw clothes on.  Ah vell!
You might recognize the yellow magnolia linen on the chair pillows from my new fabric line.  (And of course you can catch my repeated vintage vase on the garden stool-  oops! Never said I was a stylist! –  (In real life it’s empty for a drink or a book. 😉
I had so much fun with this redo beause I think it shows how much palette & soft goods & lighting can change a room.  The main pieces of furniture like the bed & dressers stayed the same but the room now has a completely different vibe.  It feels like my client now.
Hope you enjoyed!!
We have 4 more installs in the next month or so and I’ll be sure to share before & afters when I get pics.  (I still have a few from this past summer that I need to get pics of- very behind- but I’m trying to catch up!!)
