Before-and-After Bedroom Makeover

Boring and beige, this bedroom needed a style and color makeover. A decorating transformation that kept the good and brought in the better achieved just that.

Boring, bland, and beige. This bedroom needed personality, pattern, and color which it got thanks to a stunning makeover [MUSIC]. The problems, dull walls, out of scale furniture and accessories. And not a stitch of color or pattern. A DIY molding treatment adds architectural interest to the boxy room and is simply stock trim boards from a home center. Painting the walls two tones of similar blues creates subtle contrast. Switching out basic blinds for a stylish Roman shade introduces the rooms color scheme to the windows. The existing ruffled duvet and shams added texture, so they stayed. But the bed got a color boost, with additional pillows and fun sheets. Draping patterned fabric over the existing headboard gave the beige piece a little more personality. And sometimes, a makeover is about dialing back. Which is why the billowy bed skirt was replaced with a tailored version that lets the top of the bed stand out. Similarly, yellow paint on only the frame of the existing nightstand, rather than the whole piece, provides just the right impact. Wall sconces replace lamps that were too small. Which frees up table space. And, in another scale fix, the tiny bench was nixed in favor of a longer one, which has room for storage underneath. Art and objects displayed on the picture ledge, as well as accessories, add a final layer of style. With a fresh design sense, and a mix of existing and new. This bedroom underwent a dramatic yet achievable makeover. Use these ideas in your own bedroom for impactful results. [MUSIC]
