Peaceful Master Bedroom Retreat

Master Bedroom After Re-Design

These homeowners love the folk art style, but wanted the bedroom to have a different, peaceful, healing vibe. Painted a cool blue, all that was needed was some redesigned space and a few new accessories. And voila! Instant retreat!

Farmhouse Master Bedroom Makeover

Master Bedroom Renovation After Photo

This bedroom screamed 1980 with its pine windows, pine doors, peachy-colored (smelly) carpet, and dirty, drab white walls.

Splurges included Dupioni silk curtains and new linens from Pottery Barn (all on sales but still expensive). Savings were from Target curtain rods and lamps, which I “antiqued” myself, lampshades on clearance at Pottery Barn, and antique and other pieces scavenged from other rooms. Floors are antique wide plank pine flooring purchased from Craigslist from several local house.

Still to come – new floor to ceiling windows and new replicated window trim from the main house, circa 1800.

Big Boy Room

This bright room sits on the southwest side of an old farmhouse. The room was dingy and neglected. After a complete renovation, which included refinished floors and new windows, the walls received a coat of neutral khaki paint.

After several years, the room’s tenant (a six year old) wanted a new color. Because the room faces south and has floor to ceiling windows, I picked Benjamin Moores’s Newburyport Blue, a very dark navy blue. The room feels very sophisticated and even with the dark paint, feels bright and warm.
