a peek at a master bedroom e-design "after"

a little "after" glimpse of an e-design bedroom that i worked on for my friend jen... 
 the katie ridder wallpaper cost a small fortune, but makes a huge impact.
(and isn't her cute little pug a great addition too?)
because the ceilings are slanted and vaulted, the room lacked a sense of coziness and warmth. we added
a strip of molding about 8 feet from the floor and painted everything above (including the ceiling) charcoal grey.
this also helped in minimize a plant shelf that jen and her husband weren't crazy about.
everything below the trim was painted a soft warm grey.

the gallery wall commemorates some of jen and her husbands travels. as they continue to travel and collect, they can add pieces. 

one of the stars of the bedroom are the linen and silk drapes that i blogged about last week.

we were also fortunate to snag one of the metal stump tables at z gallerie before they sold out.

the design plan for the room:

interested in working together to create a more functional and beautiful space?
i am currently booked through july for full room designs but am now accepting clients for august.
email me at to get on my waiting list.
i can always fit in a phone consultation or a pinterest board + phone consultation anytime.


  1. Love that Katie Ridder wallpaper! It's my favorite part of the room!

  2. Looks great! I love the darker ceiling. It definitely makes the room feel cozier!
