Before & After: Surprise Bedroom Makeover
This Before & After was unique in that it was a complete birthday surprise from the Mrs. to the Mr. (and the design was almost all done while I was “on vacation”). My client and I had only a few weeks to get all our ducks in a row to install the day of her husband’s birthday. As you can see, the room had “good bones”, but it needed to be pulled together and a little wow factor never hurt anybody.
When it comes to wallpaper, the options can be endless. There’s a definite contrast of modern and traditional in this home (with a side of eclectic), so I wanted to carry that thread throughout the bedroom as well. I wanted a paper that was impactful, fun, a bit masculine, but not too wild. We started here (below) and I was really feeling the infamous palms paper, but in the end, my client and I both fell in love with the classic David Hicks geometric hexagon pattern.
The wallpaper makes an impression upon entry, but isn’t overwhelming, and that’s what I love about this space.
The jewel tones are gorgeous in this bedroom and who wouldn’t want to curl up in this corner with a good book?!?
The headboard and nightstands are in the same color family as the wallpaper, which helps make the room feel serene.
The gold and orange tones provide some cheer in this masculine and feminine bedroom, the perfect place to relax, rest and rejuvenate.
