And the pretty after.
The basic elements stayed: furniture, wall color, and recently purchased bedding. And we simply layered some lovely pieces into the room to give it some warmth and personality: new draperies, an accent pillow for the bed, lighting, and art and accessories. Amazing how you can transform the look and feel of a room without changing anything major. Window treatments can make all the difference, folks. It's true. Order some for the bare-feeling room, whether they're custom or retail. You'll be so thrilled you did.
It's so comfortable to be in this space now—the walls feel just the right intensity against with the dark furniture and rich curtains, but the room isn't too heavy either. It now makes its owners, and designer, very happy.
