Bedroom Makeover: Before and After

January 24, 2011 at 8:21 AM 22 comments

I’m pleased to present to you my latest finished project.  I have been working on a guest room for a client.  This guest room also doubles as a spot for my client’s grandkids to play.  The room was looking like this….

The closet was filled with toys, which is always inviting for kids, but the guest room portion needed some work.  My client felt inspired by all of her travels where she fell in love with the bright colors and she requested a bold room that would reflect the energy of all the kids playing in it.  But she wanted the room to look more like a bedroom then a kid’s playroom.  Did I hear color?  Well, let me give you some color…

The new bedroom –

Now she has a colorful guest bedroom and play area all wrapped up into one.  What do you think of it?  If you would like help in decorating a room, I would love to be of assistance.  You can e-mail me at

    LOVE love love! I would never have put green, navy and orange all together but it looks so cute. The white accents are fantastic and I’m obsessed with that headboard. We still have our guest room and master bedroom to makeover one day…we will definitely be using your help again!

      Oh Ann, thank you so much! This is wonderful to hear. I wanted to choose a color palate that was a little unexpected for a fresh perspective and I’m so happy you like it. I’d love to help with your guest room and master bedroom makeover one day – yes, please!
