Shouldn’t your bedroom feel fresh, peaceful and welcoming?
Here is my client, Melina’s bedroom before we made some updates. Although she had the Ralph Lauren duvet cover for a few years…it was in good shape and she likes the pattern. So, we decided to keep the duvet and the end tables, as well.
Step One: Fresh paint: This is Benjamin Moore Sterling.
Step Two: replace the overhead ceiling light with
this pretty Circa fixture in Sheffield silver.
Step Three: a new tall, upholstered headboard and base feels plush and “hotel-like.” Also, since the base is upholstered, it meant we could eliminate the skirt. The bed is on sale right now.
Step Four: We freshened up the existing classic lamps with linen drum shades from Restoration Hardware. The glass is good in a small bedroom as it takes up less space visually.
Step Five: We added crisp hotel linen sheets from Restoration Hardware and the Belgian linen diamond quilt and shams from Pottery Barn. I have the same quilt. It washes so nicely–especially given that we let Chief on the bed.
Step Six: We splurged on this custom striéd velvet pillow. It has micro-welting and kravet trim that ties in the sand/gray colors
Step Seven: Vertical beveled mirrors on either side of the bed were added to enlarge the space.
Step Eight: A bench at the end of the bed provides a nice place to take your shoes on and off. It’s from Restoration Hardware.
Thanks, Melina for letting me take photos of your pretty bedroom.
