Before and After: A Charming Bedroom Makeover

September 2, 2016

Hiya! Quick post today with a great before and after WOW factor. I was thrilled when the stylish and sweet Maya McDonald, blogger behind Charmingly Styled hired me to help her re-vamp her bedroom. Her makeover reveal was also in partnership with Dutch Boy paints, and the color we chose for the walls is Skyler Blue (just in case you are wondering!). Here’s Maya’s bedroom before:

Very cool lofted space and love the wooden ceiling, but needs help!

Maya had picked out a stunning and bold RED dresser from one of my favorite vendors MegMade. The red dresser and my friend Erin’s line of wallpaper, in particular her KANOKO print, were the main inspiration to pull this new bedroom look together. I was excited Maya was ready to go BOLD! This lady was not afraid of color, and we tempered the large printed wallpaper with simple, classic and clean bedding. Then we added a touch a shine with brass accents and antique mirrored glass. I just love the results!







What do you think?! Sweet, sophisticated and fun – just like Maya! I love how the space feels energizing, yet relaxing too. Here’s me on install day, had to match the room in my red tank of course.


Thanks Maya! And thanks to our incredible photographer Aimee Mazzenga
