the blue bedroom before & after

Today I'm excited to share with you all a recently completed project I had a lot of fun working on. Great clients help, but a great before-and-after makes for a really satisfying project too. It's the typical lonely, last-to-be-decorated master bedroom that was feeling empty and neglected and just needed more—more softness, more luxury, more layers to bring it all to life. And we did just that, all while working with those blue walls, that were admittedly a little brighter than the client was originally going for but that she ultimately liked and wanted to keep. And yay, we made them work! Here's the before.


And the pretty after.


The basic elements stayed: furniture, wall color, and recently purchased bedding. And we simply layered some lovely pieces into the room to give it some warmth and personality: new draperies, an accent pillow for the bed, lighting, and art and accessories. Amazing how you can transform the look and feel of a room without changing anything major. Window treatments can make all the difference, folks. It's true. Order some for the bare-feeling room, whether they're custom or retail. You'll be so thrilled you did. 

It's so comfortable to be in this space now—the walls feel just the right intensity against with the dark furniture and rich curtains, but the room isn't too heavy either. It now makes its owners, and designer, very happy.

The room really looks finished now with the addition of the curtains. You are so right that the color of the wall now seems to be the right intensity! Great job, Casey.

So pretty, Casey! Awesome job! You are so right about the finishing touches and details and layers. That is like the blue paint color we have in our upstairs bathroom and master bedroom. I want to redo both, but I am definitely repainting:) And yes, I desperately need drapes. Bought a new quilt for our master bedroom "redo" like a year ago when it was on sale and it is still sitting in the shipping box!!!

Awesome Casey! I love a spruce up project. It shows you that you don't have to spend a ton of money to achieve a brand new look - all while using existing elements. Love the new window treatments - they add so much.
