From Hot Mess to Gorgeous Suite!

The Before

The After

I recently put the finishing touches on the master bedroom suite in our house. I am a fan of incorporating heirloom pieces into every space I design because it adds character and brings meaning to a room as well as makes the space uniquely yours. The first thing that had to go was the blue carpet and yes, I had to endure the carpet for over a year. It was a tough one! New furniture was added, because I loved the existing wallpaper, the old border between the moldings were painted to give the illusion of a heavy molding around the top of the space and new bedding was added. Monograms give a space a high end feel and they’re very inexpensive. This particular duvet cover and euro sham are from pottery barn. On sale of course! My grandmother’s blanket chest is at the end of the bed and my favorite pieces in this space are the lighting. The mother of pearl fixture was a warehouse score for $49. They had two, one wired up and ready to hang for $599 and then this one which was missing the wiring for the bulbs and to hang in the ceiling. Of course a $10 light kit from Lowes fixed it right up! It’s good to have a handy husband around! I added the lamps this week. They give the space a touch of elegance as well as bring a little modern touch to the room. So, it went from hot mess to a beautiful master bedroom suite!
