For this decorating project, we took a bedroom that needed to be modernized. The bedroom belongs to a young woman who was tired of her pre-university look and wanted to add some maturity with modern colours and furnishings. The outcome? I loved it, and more importantly, SHE loved it!
Take a look and you'll love it too!
|Before; no headboard, a key element to the new decorating plan|
|Before; the dresser could use a coat of paint|
|Before; the hardwood extends from the hallway into the bedroom, that stays|
|Before; the trim and the closet doors are a beautiful white, but very stark against the bright orange walls|
|Before; the colour was the main thing she wanted to change, along with some accessories|
|After; a beautiful raspberry pink has replaced the orange accent colour. Notice the headboard and the mismatched side tables and the theme they bring to the room. See notes below for sources.|
|After; We went with an accent wall and for the three remaining walls we went with a subtle grey that blends with both the pink and her new furnishings. See notes below for sources.|
|After: The grey makes the room look bigger and the white trim is softer, rather than stark.|
|After: She painted the dresser and removed some items from the wall, leaving it look less cluttered and cleaner looking with a fresh coat of white paint.|
|After: a modern/western look at an Indian theme with the Taj Mahal picture, a beautiful linen pillow and a lucky elephant. All modern, mature, and personal.|
We were very happy with the outcome and the planning process was smooth and the execution was fast.
