master bathroom, Powder roomQuick Changes, Chocolate Tart and SF at Night November 18, 2013 By Mary Ann Pickett Leave a Comment Jackie wanted to “freshen up” her master bedroom on a budget. After visiting her home, I gave Jackie and her husband some direction to carry out the project themselves. Here are photos that she sent to me recently… After I recommended recovering her chair with tufting and in this subtle stripe that I found at Dorell Discount fabric (about $10/yd). Before All their bedroom furniture was “matched.” Since they needed more storage, Before we ordered two of these from Restoration Hardware. This was the major investment. They were relieved that I didn’t suggest changing everything. Jackie got the mercury lamps at Home Goods. In this before photo below, I suggested spray painting the botanical frames black and rehanging them to frame the mirror. Before After I, also recommended painting the walls Benjamin Moore Glass Slipper. We have enough of the coordinating discount paisley fabric (on the pillow) to have a tailored bedskirt made in the near future. Here is another quick before and after for a different client who only wanted to replace her powder room’s faded wallpaper. Before We also grabbed a different mirror from the hall and installed this beautiful (wish you could see it in person) Phillip Jeffries Moroccan Metallic Gold on Ivory Hemp Wallpaper. My client just sent this photo to me via her telephone. The scale of this mirror feels slightly too large for the base but the price was right 🙂 After I won this book from the wonderful blog, The Arts By Karena… Thanks, Karena! It’s displayed without the cover (showing the neutral cane cover) on our coffee table. Yesterday, I made this Chocolate and Toasted Nut Tart to take to our friends’ dinner party… few blocks down the street… They have an amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge from their rooftop deck. (thanks, Dwight, for taking these photos) This is a view back towards Russian Hill on the right, where we live…and see the shooting star? Next time… a tour, of our compact but efficient and relatively spacious, galley kitchen. Thanks for visiting!
