Bedroom Before and After


When I first saw my client's bedroom I didn't think it looked too bad. She had an Anthropologie quilt and bedskirt that were super colorful and fun. But the bedroom just didn't feel like she wanted it too. She was tired of her old stuff and she wanted something much more peaceful and calm feeling.


Here is the moodboard I created and here is how it looks now! 


It's much more serene and peaceful than it was before. There was a tight budget on this room so I tried to make our dollars stretch. The lamps and artwork are from Home Goods. 


The headboard was made by my seamstress Erin. The Euro shams are from Pottery Barn and the yellow pillows are done by Erin in one of my very favorite fabrics, Bleeker. The coral pillow in front is to the trade and is from Villa Home. We also changed out the wall color to a much calmer blue.
