Before & After: Master Bedroom in Lakeway
January 18, 2013 in Before & After | 3 comments

I finished a project not too long ago which was at a great home out in Lakeway, TX.  If you know this area, you are familiar with the lake style living.

The homeowner has a fabulous pool, boat, and all the lakeside resort elements.  However, her master bedroom, while lovely, was in her opinion, ‘too dark’.  She wanted that ‘light, fresh, resort’ feel so many seem to be looking for today.

Before: Nice and neat, just a little dated and a bit too full of ‘stuff’.  Usually when I am designing a room the homeowners ends up with fewer, but larger, more impactful pieces and less ‘stuff’.  This can be an adjustment for the homeowner!

Existing ‘media’ piece- a large armoire.  These are hard for homeowners to get rid of because they were usually a significant purchase.


After:  The bed was the only element we reused.  A much lighter palette with white, seafoams and sand colors.

The area by the bath was cleaned up and only this piece was placed on that wall:


This new media piece replaced the existing armoire and helped to open up the room. new media piece

Overall, the bedroom is now a relaxing, peaceful, lakeside retreat which can be enjoyed for many years to come!  We also updated the family room and eating area and I look forward to sharing those with you in the coming weeks!
