I can’t tell you how excited I am to have my first client for making over an entire room and being able to share it with all of you.
Yesterday, I went to meet with Julie, a local follower, to talk about giving her master bedroom a makeover. They moved into their home about seven years ago and have worked on every room in the house but ran out of steam before making it to their own bedroom.
Don’t we all do that? It seems like our bedrooms are one of the last places we take care of. But, it should be one of the first. We need to be able to go to bed at night in a restful, comfortable, and complete room.
Julie’s room has all the basic needs and some beautiful antique pieces, but just doesn’t seem finished to her and she wants it to be updated with a more casual, cottage feel.
That bed is beautiful and was handmade for them for their 25th wedding anniversary. No, we won’t be painting that.
The swing arm lamps have to stay, but I’m sure we can do something to make them work in the room. The brass has gotta go.
Another beautiful piece she picked up at a yard sale. TV has to say, but maybe we can find another solution for the base.
Julie is a teacher and she grades papers and makes lesson plans at this desk, so it is staying also.
We will be looking for a bedside table, something small, for the right side of the bed and we need to find a solution for the window treatments also.
Here are some inspiration pics that Julie chose. Gotta love Pinterest! (By the way, I’ll be doing a post on Pinterst this week. I’ve gotten several questions about it. It’s A-ma-zing!)
She loves the feel of this one. Layered bedding, touches of turquoise, and the casual cottage look.
She was also thinking of more of a brown wall, not quite this dark, and again, she loves the layered bedding, and pops of color.
So, now, I will be putting together some ideas over the next few days that will go with our budget and we will get moving on making Julie and her husband’s bedroom a real retreat for them.
I will be posting our progress here but be sure to follow my Facebook page for even more pictures and progress notes.
Thank you to Julie for welcoming me into your beautiful home. I look forward to working with you. Your bedroom is definitely Potentially Beautiful! 🙂
