We work with a mix of homes and spaces….all ranging in design complexity and scale. Sometimes the spaces may call for a complete gut/overhaul while other times we are able to work with the foundational elements and some of the existing furnishings while mixing in new touches to give the space a fresh, updated feel.
Recently we had the pleasure of redesigning a master bedroom for one of our clients. Their bedroom is a place they spend a lot of time in so it was very important to them to make it place they were excited to come home to and unwind in after a long day. The goal was to create a space that felt like a welcoming spa-like retreat while also reflecting their personal sense of style and one that was cohesive with the rest of the home. Through our redesign approach of this space, I will share some tips on how you can really transform a space with some subtle adjustments and additions that will leave great impact.
TIP 1 | Ensure your furniture is the right scale for the space
While the original bedroom was pretty bare lacking a unified style and character, the existing bed frame was a nice piece and a good size for the space. The nightstands, on the other hand, were much too small for the room and did not frame or complement the bed well. We chose to incorporate the chest versions of the Living Spaces Elden Bachelors Chest. They were the perfect additions to the room providing greater balance and symmetry and also made the room feel larger as a result. The tiled textured wood with the sleek metal legs were also a great way to complement the fabric tufted bed.
TIP 2 | Create a focal accent wall
To break up the large space and add interest to the room, we went bold with an accent focal wall using this fun geometric wallpaper design from Milton & King. It’s an instant attention grabber as you enter the room and is a fairly inexpensive way to really make a statement.
TIP 3 | Don’t forget about the importance of function
TIP 4 | The details make the design
Don’t underestimate the impact of what the details can do for a space! In this room, we mixed contrasting light and dark elements in the décor and pops of pattern in the textiles to bring unity to the space.
