A Master Bedroom Makeover

This bedroom belongs to one of my mom’s good friends in Chattanooga.  I helped give her bedroom a little face lift.  I’ve been meaning to post these pictures for months because it was finished about a year ago… Better late than never!

First I will show you the “AFTER” pictures, then we’ll look at the “BEFORE”.  She wanted the room to be simple with lots of blue.  What do y’all think????  It was basically my first design makeover on my own :)

In case you can’t tell, the “AFTER” pictures were taken on my mom’s fancy camera; the “BEFORE” pictures were taken on my iPhone.

AFTER

Newly painted walls, gold leaf sunburst mirror and custom pillow shams.

A pair of new large Ring Table lamps from Visual Comfort (available through Circa Lighting or Mallory Mathison Inc.)

We found these small wooden tables and gold men framed artwork in her attic or around her house…

Reupholstered this club chair in some pretty blue velvet.  Ottoman was custom made by an upholsterer here in Atlanta.

We had this pretty day bed reupholstered in the blue checked fabric that matches her pillow shams and bedskirt.  The fabric is Schumacher’s Camden cotton check.  My client hung the gallery wall herself.

Favorite Canopies

As a follow up to yesterday’s post, I wanted to share my favorite canopy beds.  Naturally, my favorite canopy beds are from my favorite interior design source, Oly Studio.  I mean, they are just beautiful…

Diego

 

Marco

 

 

Morgan

 

Walker

 

Willa

 

Obviously, the names aren’t as fun as the names of John Robshaw’s headboards… But aren’t they gorgeous?  I don’t think I can pick a fave.  Maybe Diego.  No, Marco.  No, Walker.  Ugh, one of those three!

If you’re like me and you can’t even come close to affording an Oly canopy bed (don’t worry, most people can’t), you might consider Ballard Designs’ Louis XVI Poster Bed.  Although Louis sure does NOT look appealing after looking at Marco and Walker…

 

I think if I could fit a canopy in my bedroom and I just HAD to have one RIGHT NOW I would go with Anthropologie’s Italian Campaign canopy.  I feel like they’ve had this bed forever!  It’s only $1700 for a queen – a steal compared to those Oly beds above.

 

Anthropologie also has a Forest Canopy Bed.  I’m not too fond of the iron leaves and branches though… And the price is a little too steep for me.

 

 

NOIR has some pretty canopy beds too… like the Ferret Bed (what at terrible name!  I would NOT buy this just because of the name!  Can you tell I don’t like ferrets?)

 Ferret also comes in White Washed (below) and Weathered, which is kind of the color of a ferret (ew!)

 I think I like NOIR’s Venice bed.  Not just because of the name.

 

 And last but not least, Pottery Barn has a fantastic canopy bed, Antonia.  And I love that the headboard is upholstered!

Captivating Canopies

I think the title of this post explains itself….  Too bad my little bedroom is too small for a canopy!  :(  I guess I’ll just have to add to my list of pretty pieces to put in my future dream home…

One of my favorite canopy beds has to be this one that I found on Pinterest.  I LOVE the way the hardware is mounted on the ceiling!  It’s so… industrial. And unique.

 

And now a few more canopy beds that I thought were pretty and/or just interesting ;) 

 

Benjamin Noriega-Oritz via Elle Decor… So soothing.

 

Charlotte Moss

 

Jonathan Adler’s bed

 

 

 Katie Ridder

Jonathan Berger via House Beautiful… Antique mirror?  Yes, please!!!  And I love the rug too.

 

 

Kelly Wearstler… check out the Imperial Trellis rug!

 

 

 

 Lonny

 

M Elle Designs

 

Oscar de la Renta… I’m pretty sure that canopy bed is made of rattan or wicker… Interesting.

And last but not least, a canopy bed designed by Phoebe Howard that I’m sure that you’ve seen before.  But I couldn’t resist because it is oh-so-pretty.  And feminine.  And calming… I absolutely love the gathered detail inside the canopy.
