A few weeks ago I was asked by a client / friend to help give her master bedroom a little sprucing. With a limited budget she wanted to keep her current bedroom furniture and basic tan and white bedding but add a few accessories to pull the space together. Painting was not tops on the list, but with the right accessories she could be convinced to repaint the space. A rug was a must because her one year old son plays on the floor while she gets ready in the morning and she wanted to have a comfortable place for him.
When I asked how she wanted the room to feel she said, "like I'm on vacation at the beach, but without the light blues, seashells and typical beach chotchkies."
Here are the two plans I came up with- one I thought her husband would like and one I knew she would like. The hard part is coming up with a compromise for both of them. (the nightstands represent the current finish on the existing bedroom furniture)
In the end I think we might pick and choose from both- but that just makes for an even more personalized space that works for the whole family.
Happy Weekend everyone!
