Our Eclectic Bedroom - Before and After

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share our bedroom makeover with everyone

In 2009, we purchased a lake home in a great location and VIEW but as with many things we had to make a compromise. When we first toured the home the master bedroom was awful. It’s outdated, over scaled furnishings all but masked any potential the room had.

Check out the before:

We went with a neutral backdrop so that I could add color and pattern in other ways. It’s a not a large space by any means but the repetition of color helps to draw your eye around the room. By sewing the curtains, pillows and reupholstering my great grandmother's chairs we were able to do this for a fraction of the price it might have cost otherwise.

Here's what it looks like now.
