|Left side will be Headboard wall, right side is a nice window alcove.|
|Other side of the room - window alcove continues, right side will be dresser wall.|
Working with the existing sage green color on the walls, I pulled out all my green and white accessories & furniture to fill the space. And here are the after shots:
More pictures to come! It is still plenty open and could easily fit another dresser or two armchairs and a small table for a cozy sitting area in the window alcove.
Some things I would recommend (starting with minor/short-term fixes and moving to a bigger projects) to improve this room would be:
- Remove the wallpaper border at least (fast & free!)
- Replace with large crown molding, paint it & the ceiling a soft white
- Add some layers of curtains to play up the big window alcove
- A bigger project for the long-term: There's enough room on the left wall (opposite the bed) to add a beautiful built-in (Candice Olson style!) with room for upper shelves, lower cabinets, a TV & maybe even a fireplace. It would add some architectural detail and warmth. So the room could look something like these designs from HGTV's Candice Olson:
|The room layout & size is similar - walls for bed, window & built ins are the same.|
|Again, same layout - this one has fireplace & hidden TV behind the french painting!|
If we were staying in this house long-term, a beautiful wall of built-ins would definitely be on my dream/project list! How about you? Do you have a dreamy Master Bedroom space you've worked on?
