Not much to see in the "Before"--just a sea of builder-white paint.
The "after". The walls are painted Sherwin-Williams "Prairie Grass." The coverlet, sheets, and bedskirt are from Ralph Lauren, and the accent pillows are custom from old Waverly patterns. The drapes are custom as well, the subdued pattern on the panels was originally part of a more elaborate window treatment that included a muted floral tailored valance. Here, I added a bit of detail with oversized tassles. The prints over the bed were found at Hobby Lobby on clearance years ago, and were in the powder room at my old house.
In one corner, an iron plant stand holds a vase filled with dried grasses. (Live plants tend to commit suicide in my presence, so out of respect, I have very few.) Flanking the window are a pair of framed hinges--the sort expected on Asian cabinetry. I got them on clearance at Bombay Company ten years ago. (I wish that store were still around!)
This shot shows a bit of the rug at the foot of the bed. There are some deep reds and earthy greens in the rug which give this room a needed punch of color. The dark red in the rugs border is picked up again on a small fringed pillow on the bed. (The rug is another repurposed piece--it used to anchor my old living room!)
The headboard, though just barely visible behind the mountain of pillows, really finished the room off. For quite a while, the oversized striped pillows served as the headboard, but the black finish with the gold accents gives the space some depth.
