Before and After: Blue Bedroom
February 17, 2012 in Before & After | 4 comments

I just realized it has been awhile since I’ve done some before and after projects.  Over the past year I’ve transitioned to designing “full rooms”, where the client and I develop the concept, place orders to design the entire room, and then install all the elements in one day.  It is so much fun to go from a ‘before’ to a completely redone ‘after’.

For this project, my client wanted to redesign her master bedroom.  She moved into her home about 10 years ago and decorated all the main living areas and just never got around to spending the money on her own room.

Here are our ‘before’ shots:



The client wanted a light and airy look, using white, blue and green, but she  was also interested in a pop of color.  I was really excited when she said she was open to raspberry.

We agreed to this floorplan layout:


And these key furniture and fabric elements:



And about 10 weeks later, this is what the bedroom looks like ‘after’:


Bedroom Detail New

We painted the walls a pale blue/gray shade.  Invested in a quality bed with custom upholstery, tufting and nailheads, which really make an impression.  A clean lined, but comfortable, sitting chair was added for TV viewing (the TV is in a new built in on the opposite wall).

The home owner had a family heirloom which we used as the nightstand on the left side and we added a new nightstand in a celery green painted finish (no ‘matchy-matchy’ here) on the opposite side.

We also had a custom piece of abstract art (a coastal scene) commissioned for a large area to the left of the nightstand.  It is by artist Linda P. Donohue out of California.

My client was very pleased, especially with her custom artwork and bedding with that little pop of raspberry!
