I was able to take some photos over the weekend of a master bedroom project I just finished up. The clients are newlyweds and had been living with her childhood furniture and dark purple walls. They wanted a relaxing retreat with grown up furniture and fabrics.
This is how the room looked when we started:
And, this is how the room turned out:
I think the bedding ended up being my favorite part of the room. We had it custom-made using a pretty assortment of fabrics from Robert Allen's line for Dwell Studio.
They wanted a really soothing color on the walls, so we went with "Going Gray" by Olympic Paint. We used the next color down on the paint card and painted the ceilings "Volcanic Ash."
The client liked the idea of a small sitting area in the bedroom. Due to space limitations, we opted for this long bench that I found at a consignment store and placed it in front of the windows. She painted the legs a dark gray and recovered it in one of the same fabrics we used on the bed.
You see who actually ends up using this window seat the most. . .
We used the IKEA Malm chests for nightstands and added some pretty chrome pulls to dress them up. Above the nightstands, we framed photographs from places they visited on their honeymoon.
To save money, and maximize storage, we kept the armoire from her bedroom set.
We painted it a deep blue-gray and used my favorite shiny knobs from IKEA. We also accessorized the top to add height.
Thanks to Julie and Brad for letting me share your room!
