I was recently hired to redo a master bedroom for a good friend. Wish I had before, before pics- but I didn't have my camera. Here's what things looked liked after painting.
The walls were previously light pink. We gave them a coat of "File Cabinet" from Martha Stewart, which really warmed up the room We had already changed the furniture placement at this point. You're looking through two french doors. Previously, the bed was on the wall to the left, so you almost ran into it when you entered the room. This is a much better layout.
We lucked out when my client had two matching chest of drawers located in different parts of the house. When brought together and used as nightstands, it really pulled the space plan together.
We had already sent off the wingback chair to be slipcovered- this was just a stand in until the make-over was complete
The bedding was the jumping off point for the design. We ordered this Rose Hill bedding set from Overstock. The entire double bed set with 2 shams and bedskirt was just under $150. Here you can see the matching nightstands. I always try to do at least one custom piece for each room make-over- this time it's the shutters over the bed.
