As an interior designer, there are certain rooms that I finish where I immediately want to jump into bed, or Netflix and chill, or just move straight in and take over the space myself.
This master makeover, recently featured in Design Sponge, is one of those special spaces.
Let’s take a look at this navy blue beauty of a bedroom in the canyons of Beverly Glen, shall we?
I teased this shot on Instagram before the reveal, because I just couldn’t contain my excitement! The flowers are from my client Jenny’s garden in the back, and the cute-as-a-button bunny was found on Etsy.com.
Ready for more? Let’s start with the “before”…
Jenny and her husband did what most typical families do when they are buying/renovating/decorating a home… they let their own bedroom lag behind, as they designed the rest of their space (I am currently guilty of this in my own house).
The walls were painted in a light, minty blue… which was an admittedly hasty decision according to Jenny, and they definitely needed an upgrade from a Queen sized bed to a King… especially since they were about to become a family of four and needed more room for snuggling!
The chandelier was too small for the space, and the rest of the furniture was just a bit too run down at the heels (credenza knobs pulled off by their older daughter Charlotte as she was learning to stand).
Now THAT’S a grown up bed!
And it’s amazing what a little navy blue can do (if you know me… you know I LOVE this hue!).
With this gorgeous bed installed, I decided against a chandelier (we didn’t need any competition here), and instead I went for bedside lamps in a beautiful brush stroke pattern by Jana Bek Design.
The side tables are from West Elm, and the photography (a nod to their adopted home state of CA) is by Max Wanger.
Pretty gold dishes from one of my go-to Los Angeles design shops, Clad Home…
And starring in one of my favorite shots of the room… we have a “Millenial Pink” chair from Consort Design (this color is not leaving us folks… and I don’t want it too), perfect for mama Jenny and her two girls, and a simple brass floor lamp from Anthropologie.
The vintage rug that’s peeking out is from Woven Abode. If you want an amazing vintage rug of your own, Kim is the girl to get one for you! RUN… don’t walk… to her site now for new stock every Wednesday!
Ooooh… that morning light…
Gahhhhh! That T.V.!!!
Whew! That’s better 😉 .
How special is this vintage credenza? We had originally found a different dresser, but when it arrived at the house, it didn’t make it up the stairway. It’s the first time this has happened to me, but in this case… the alternate case piece that Jenny found at West Coast Modern LA was even more superior in style.
The art is from One King’s Lane (I’ve always been a HUGE fan of their art selection!)…
… and the green and blue vase, and mint dish are vintage from Etsy.
The beautiful beads are from Clad Home…
Clad Home to the rescue again with the super cool accessories (vintage chair from my own collection)!
Here’s one last look at what I call the midcentury bohemian modern master bedroom makeover…
Thank you thank you thank you Zeke Ruelas for the stunning photography, “eagle”eye, and good times while styling and shooting…
… and to this gorgeous family for allowing me to create this retreat for them (ridiculously cute photo by Avia Rosen Photography).
