M elissa, a very busy working mother, decided it was time to move her tween daughter into her own grown-up bedroom. Since the existing guest bedroom wasn’t being used much, she opted to use this room. Although the room had good bones, it was a cold blank slate. (Did I mention this bedroom makeover is a surprise?)
The existing wall color lacked the “wow” factor.
The perfect spot for our new light fixture.
This striking prism-cut Lucite orb fixture was purchased at the Z Gallery and my client found the perfect ceiling medallion. Lighting is the most effective way to add ambience.
I frown at itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny art work on large wall spans. It just doesn’t work. Can you imagine how it would look if we just hung one note board? Uum :-(
I designed this note board by joining six smaller boards together to create one larger for maximum IMPACT!!
A wonderful way of personalizing the space.
Melissa and I had many conversations prior to the makeover. I really pushed to convince this mother daughter team in the direction of a trendy tufted headboard . . . Target
The three dimensional flowers add a touch of whimsy.
I chose a mid-tone robust brown, Dunn Edwards Colorado Trail. The reflective nightstand and lamp next to the bed bring light into the space.
The circle pattern of the light fixture is repeated on the drapery panels and ottoman. Pretty nifty, eh?
Fun Roxy comforter set was a birthday gift for Kayla, from her grandmother.
Melissa is so llllloved, she had plenty of family and friends to help out with the tasks at hand!! I stuck around most of the day because I love and adore this wonderful family!
This space was crying out for a happy ending. So I gave it a dreamy makeover full of cool colors and tween fantasy.
You’ve come a long way baby…
Wishing you a cozy evening!
