We completed a master bedroom for a client right before Thanksgiving. They are recently empty nesters and are slowly starting to redecorate and remodel their home.
BEFORE (on day of install)
I got the privilege of assisting them, oh what a joy it was!
They decided to start with their master bedroom so it could be ready for the holiday season.
They had the bed already. We added new bedding, side tables, lamps, artwork, accessories and draperies.
As you know, I love to use items the client already has. I shopped their home for treasures and added them to the items I purchased to give it a "collected" feel.
These pillows!! Love the textures and variety of patterns. It is always amazing to me how a room comes together. I started with an inspiration fabric (the draperies - see below) and go from there! Layering textures on a bed is so luxurious and really makes a statement. I do think that too many pillows can be overdone.
For a king size bed, I usually use two king pillow shams or 3 euro shams. For this room, I decided to use 2 king shams because I didn't want to cover up the tufting detail on the bed. I then added three throw pillows.
Side tables with drawers are a must in a master bedroom. The lamps look so amazing with the dots on the pillows. Subtle repetition of detail.
The artwork I found is PERFECT with all the colors and has just enough gold to work well with the pillows.
The draperies were hard to photograph because of the light. You can see the colors well in the above photo.
Such a great project for a fun couple!
Her grandma's rocking chair even got a makeover.
The joy the client receives. on the day of the installation, has no comparison to the joy and blessing that I receive in being able to make yet another home beautiful! Connecting Life and Home is such a pleasure.
Hope you are enjoying the Christmas season so far.
I've started some of my decorating, at least the mantel is done and the stockings are hung! I am purposely doing simple décor this Christmas. I'd rather spend more time with my family than stressing about making it all perfect. Plus, I have to put it all away in a month! Simple can be beautiful too!
