The bed makes a wonderful focal point
when redesigning a bedroom.

The homeowner of this master bedroom,
was trying to give it a new look.

She had purchased new bedding
but it was not enough to give the room a change.

We just needed to rearrange a little
 and add some interest with fabric!

When you are redesigning a bedroom
you usually want the bed to be the focal point of the room.
So we moved the bed to the wall between the two windows.

 Doesn't that create a very nice focal point?
See how the layering of pillows and bedding
really does make the bed stand out.

The coordinating curtains give the room some drama and elegance.

The bed was on the opposite wall
so when you entered you did not really see it.

See how we created a nice balance on that wall across from the bed.

The homeowner purchased fabric and hemmed a coverlet
for the end of the bed as well as the curtain panels.

So simple... just hem the sides and the ends and hang with curtain rings. 
It really makes a difference!

What a beautiful and relaxing retreat!

Take a look at your bedrooms---
 What could you do to create more of a focal point?

An Office for Her

Here are a few shots just to get you curious---

This homeowner moved into a new home and wanted to create
an office with her own style.

Do these accessories give you an idea of what she likes?

The room is not totally done, we are waiting on some chairs
and a larger set of shelves but for now this is what we created.

I had her go shopping and look for items that made her happy,
colors that she liked and that felt good to her.

As you can see she liked robin egg blue, birds, nests,
 eggs, fresh greenery and twigs.

Here is the BEFORE

And the AFTER so far...
I will give you an update when it is all put together!

So remember when you are creating a space in your home---

1. Have things that you LOVE.
2. Have things that are USEFUL.

And of course have fun!

A Change of Style

This beautiful bedroom now reflects the taste
of the woman of the house.

This client was new to the home, she married into family of 6
where her new husband had been a widower.
So, much of the style of the room was that of the
 previous lady of the house.

There was a lot in the room and we needed to trim it down.
Notice the heavy armoir on the side wall.

We moved the heavy piece and created a grouping on the wall. 
 It feels much more to scale and quite warm and inviting.


We found out as we tried moving the armoir that it was in three pieces.
Which was perfect, because now we could take the drawer sections
and use them in the closet as a dresser.


The art grouping on the wall with the lamp
even out the space and help to create a warm inviting atmosphere.

The newly married couple now have space 
to hang some wedding photos.

Notice what a difference the curtains make.

Simple and clean decor.

A different view of the side of the room.
See how the mirrored piece was just to large for the space.

The bookcase with the painting feels much better.

Notice the corner by the window.
The dresser that is there feels too tight for the space.

See how the taller narrower cabinet works so much better.

Sooo... fun to see the transformation!
