A new take on Stephanie’s bedroom!

A while back, Peggy and I created an online plan for her California home. It was a pleasure working with her and I was happy to see her come back with another project.

This is a fun one! Her daughter Stephanie is currently attending college and heading in an architectural direction- thumbs-up! She will be home for the summer and wanted to create a new look for her bedroom. This is a temporary dwelling so we’re looking for an easy, light, inexpensive, low-maintenance, pick-me-up.

Current bedroom-

Looks like we have a bright, happy room with pretty woodwork to build upon.

Inspiration photo-

Creative direction- “Stephanie has expressed she is wanting an urban loft feel for her bedroom. Obviously the green walls will be covered up and she wants to use the skyline pillow as her inspiration piece. She mentioned a dramatic purple or a grey (maybe for the ceiling)? I don’t want to stifle your creativity so your input is welcomed!”

So we settled on the above photo as a bit of a guide (notice the similarity in furniture/trim), love the look!

My first inclination regarding wall color was to keep it light and airy. A sophisticated light gray with a little warmth, maybe a whisper of violet in the undertone. Our winner- Benjamin Moore silver fox 2108-50, a really beautiful shade, check it out.

Then I put together a mood board to help Stephanie create the scene-

(curtain panels Ikea, bedding Target, chandelier Ikea, throw pillows Crate and Barrel/Tonic Living, sheets Target, prints theloveshop/Etsy)

Everything you see is very inexpensive! My personal favorite- the bedding… $34.99 for a king comforter this cute?

Additional suggestions- Change the dresser knobs to something elegant like glass, hang an inexpensive, chandelier type light- maybe around the dresser, layer the bedding and add throw pillows for pop, hang a dynamic gallery wall- frame a variety of prints/photos, etc… in white or silver frames.

And the look is underway! They have painted, purchased the bedding, and let me know it’s turning out well. Enjoy the new look Stephanie!
