The time has come! I’m so excited to reveal the final room design. For those of you who haven’t
been following along, during the past two weeks I have been working on a room design challenge
where I transform a room. One of my goals throughout this project has been to show you, step by step,
how you can create something beautiful, even with a small budget. If your interested in seeing the
previous posts, you can catch up by following the links below:
Now, lets get started by reviewing the previous rooms’ decor. The walls were gray and the room
needed to be brightened up. My intent was to use all the remaining furniture pieces and find ways
to incorporate some of the stuff I already had, while updating some of the existing decor.
This design concept shows the look I was hoping to achieve. As expected, some things
have changed, but overall, I think the final design aligns pretty close to what was originally
planned. But I’ll let you see for yourself. Follow along as I reveal the final room transformation.
I’m so happy with the way this room turned out. The white paint really helped open up the space and give
it a light and elegant look. Most of the bedding I already had, including this hand-me- down coverlet
that’s layered with my old duvet.
I used decorative pillows from Home Goods to add some color and brighten up the bed. I wanted
to keep the bedding white so I can swap out the decorative pillows with different colors as time
goes by. Its nice to have things that are versatile.
These bedside lamps are made with a mercury glass finish and covered with a soft pink glaze,
coordinating perfect with the rest of the room.
The bedside table is an antique vanity from my childhood. I love it’s mirrored surface, but the legs
are a bit busy so I draped fabric over the front to cover them. I enjoy the challenge of using old pieces
and trying to think of ways to make them look better. Instead of always resorting to buying new furniture,
think about ways to update what you have!
I always try to make beds look cozy and inviting, and throw blankets always help by adding texture,
color, and layers.
This is the same nightstand I had previously, but accessorized differently with the help of Thompson Ferrier .
A big thank you to them for providing candles for this room design, I absolutely love this mirrored
elephant candle, and it smells amazing!
Wall decor can really impact a space, and around the bed is always a great place to showcase it.
I ended up hand drawing these floral prints myself with pastels. I wanted something that was
subtle and blended with the soft colors of the space, but had no luck finding something affordable.
So I thought I might as well make something myself.
One of the main sources of inspiration for this room was this floral canvas . I referred to
it when picking out paint colors, pillows, and decor. If your not sure how to start decorating a space,
find a painting, pillow, or rug that has a color scheme you love, and then find things to coordinate with
Flowers are my go to accessory. I found these flowers in my backyard on a bush we almost pulled out
last summer. Thank goodness we didn’t, how gorgeous are these flowers?
There was a tv on this wall that was never used, so I replaced it with this full length mirror. This mirror
has an antiqued mirror trim and was so affordable, I had to have it. Another Home Goods
find….no surprise there!
Here is the first peek at my favorite corner of the room, my office.
The best part of this corner, in my opinion, is the classic french architectural prints provided by
Restoration Art Prints . I wanted something design related and loved the idea of architectural sketches,
but they were incredibly hard to fine. Restoration Art Prints was so fun to work with and the quality
of the prints exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to them for helping my vision come to life!
You can never have too many flowers. Trader Joes is my go-to for affordable floral, and hydrangeas
are number one on my list.
Originally, this bench was going to go below the full length mirror. Unfortunately, after reading the
directions behind the mirror, I learned that it was not intended to hang on a wall because of weight.
So I threw it under my desk and actually loved the look. It may not stay there permanently, but for now,
I’m happy with it and love that it brings blush to that corner of the room.
More glamorous candles from Thompson Ferrier, these beauties are from their metallic collection.
Finally, these new drapes bring a breath of fresh air compared to the busy pattern of the previous drapes.
I wanted something subtle, but still liked the idea of having a pattern somewhere. The soft gold braid
embroidered on these linen panels was the perfect amount of pattern.
In just two weeks I was able to create a space I love, and it didn’t require a large budget. I hope that
after watching this transformation unfold, your inspired to tackle that room you keep putting
off. If you liked the style of this room, shop the look below!
