Before & After: The Bedroom
When we moved into this house just over a year ago, I immediately decided there were a few rooms that needed big makeovers (bathroom & kitchen) and a few that just needed a bit of paint and a few tweaks. The bedroom was is pretty good shape, I could think of some major changes to make, but none that are necessary to make it a nice, livable space. We have slowly been making little changes here and there to change it into what we want.
Here are pictures of the room before we moved in:
John wanted a strong color for the room and was particularly interested in a nice, deep peacock for the walls. I was all for it and so I set to work to find the right shade. I settled on Benjamin Moore’s Salzburg Blue and John (as a birthday gift) set to work painting the room. Here is what it looks like now:
There are still many things to do. The bed is just a box spring and mattress and, right now, the box spring is exposed. I plan to get a fitted sheet to cover it, as soon as I find the right color, whatever that might be. I also want to get some curtains, I am thinking of a green or golden velvet or just white, I will know when I see them (and cost will factor very heavily into the decision). The room also needs more art and a redistribution of what is already on the walls.
We did recently purchased a light to replace this one, which we have hated since day one:
The closet doors are mirrored, which isn’t exactly great from a design perspective, but they sure are handy and I have no plans to change them yet.
I will post more pictures in the fall, when I change my bedding for the colder months, hopefully, by then, I will have even more updates to show you.
If you have any ideas for this space, feel free to share!
