Adding some "pop" through the use of color
Not all interior design projects have to involve major renovation or expense. Sometimes you just need a fresh look or feel to your space using the existing furniture and decor that you have in place. That's just what this young couple was looking for in their home.
Styling or remixing your space is a great way to design a room without breaking the bank but adding new energy to your home. That's exactly what I did for this master bedroom. Below are the BEFORE photos of the room. Lots of brown, mocha and tan with very little texture or color present. The owner wished for a more feminine feel while incorporating the existing furniture, bed linens, carpet, etc. :
I used yellow and blue hues for this bedroom remix. When shopping for the client, I made sure that I stayed with their minimalist feel and look, but added a little more texture, color and decor to their room.
Here is what the bedroom looked like after styling:
The Window Alcoves
These once dark and lonely looking alcoves got a quick facelift with bright yellow valances and oil rubbed bronze rods. I added white bookshelves to each one for storage and functionality...
Pulling in gold mirrors added some warmth that worked well with the existing mahogany furniture that this couple owns. I also purchased wicker baskets that offered a different texture and look than the other decor...
I added a few lovely (and comfortable) pillows to the bed and made sure that they tied in well with the existing comforter that the owners wished to keep. The colors and patterns look great together and look inviting and relaxing.
The recurring theme in this bedroom was "brown & beige". In an attempt to break up some of this monochromatic tone, I added a bold patterned rug with colors that tie in the pillows and decor. I really love how it looks in this room!
