one room challenge...bedroom reveal(s)

Finally!!

A HUGE thank you to Linda @ Calling it Home, the genius behind this fun challenge
that puts our creativity, perseverance and patience to the test! 
If you remember back to Week 1, it was my goal to make our little 13' x 11',
 1938 bedroom feel large and luxurious using DIYs, Craigslist, and my favorite
 budget friendly stores, Homegoods and Ikea.

Here you go... 


No surprise, I went with my favorite neutrals that I can change up on a whim
when I'm in the mood for color. A lot of pattern and texture keep it interesting.
I stenciled three walls with the Cutting Edge Alexa Stencil.

BEFORE...












The headboard was a score from Craigslist, originally red and gold. A little gray paint 
gave it the timeless look I was hoping for. The velvet pillows are from Ikea, I added
 the Greek Key trim and made the leopard lumbar last year. 
A small console fit perfectly in the bay window, and ended up being a great place for the tv.
 The Chippendale chair was another Craigslist find, I painted it high gloss white and added
a faux sheepskin upholstered seat. The black and white print is framed fabric and the
confetti vase a simple diy.

I love my new bleached natural woven shades, I had them raised to help with
lighting for the photos. 

Mr. Simple's nightstand, I love the classic, masculine statement the agate bookends
 and brass magnifying glass from Rejuvenation lend to his side.

The 63" Ikea mirrors behind the nightstands give the illusion of a larger space, I added
 the top detail for a custom look. 

I used a pair of Ikea Rast dressers as nightstands, but not before doing a hack!
 Ikea Rast Dresser - Covered in Faux Ostrich
 Ikea's new work lamp is a favorite, I love mixing metals and styles. 

Opposite our bed is an oversized print of the exterior of the hotel we stayed
 at when we were married in Italy.  

In keeping with my tradition of showing you what I'll do come spring and summer,
here are the neutrals with a pop of color... :)


The lamps, hotel bedding and bright throw are all from Homegoods.

I was smitten with the Greek key trim and added more to pillows from World Market,
and made gray and white lumbar.

The bedskirt is Nate Berkus Patras Chamomile, and was a super easy diy.

I brought in my favorite abstract from Kerry Steele, and a purple pillow with
another nod to Chippendale. 

Don't be fooled by the glamorous vibe, 
keeping it real with our spoiled Rio that shares the end of the bed with us!

I can't thank you enough for following along, and all of your support and kind comments!

I have lots of fun behind the scene details I couldn't fit in,
 stop by for an update next week!

Now go see what these fabulous ladies are revealing and don't forget to
stop by Linda's on Thursday to see the reveals everyone has worked so hard on!

Linking up with Kim @ Savvy Southern Style - Wow Us Wednesdays

Pam you really knocked this one out of the park! I love that the room is neutral, yet so full of texture and pattern. And all of you little touches, amazing! Where to begin…. the decorative element above the Ikea mirrors, of course the stenciled walls, the headboard, but also loving the glossy white chair with the sheepskin seat. And then your Summer scheme, just yummy! A job well done!

Beth of designPOST Interiors said...

Wow! I can't believe you made/made over half of this stuff! It looks gorgeous!

Dana Frieling said...

Your talent shines through extra bright in this room, my friend. High five to you for the amount of work you poured into this. It's not easy taking "cheap" finds and turning them into a glamourous space. You killed it!

Luci @Bungalow At Home said...

Wow! Just stunning Pam! I love that Ikea was incorporated in a few of the details.
That headboard was some find and the entire room looks absolutely gorgeous!! Nice!

Perfect! There is no other word! Just perfect! I love everything... the headboard is amazing! What an awesome find!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Oh Pam, I'm so happy for you! The walls and headboard totally make the room, but you have packed it full of so many custom touches, I love each and every one! I bought the same Hotel duvet cover for my room, and I think I'm going to have to copy those lucious velvet greek key pillows...love! I've also considered recovering some stools with that faux sheepskin, and I think your chair just sealed the deal for me! Thank you for providing so much fabulous inspiration with this room! I'm sure you'll have extra sweet dreams tonight! :)

Gaby [The Vault Files] said...

Unknown said...

Design perfection! Your talent and vision show in every element. Not to mention your off-the-chart work ethic and dedication to your blog: paint and stencil room; paint headboard, chair, and light; upholster chair, sew pillows and bedskirt, frame beautiful photo, and amazing styling--and 2 season versions to boot! It all paid off! Every detail and element are perfection.

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Wow, what a makeover. I love all of your brilliant ideas. The Ikea hack is fantastic, along with the tall mirrors above them. What a smart idea. That bed is the best story, ever. You have real vision. I hope Mr. Simple is happy. If he is anything like my husband, he is happy it is over :). I really love the pop of color for Spring. I am obsessed with that magnifying glass. Great job. Your dog has a good life.

Shauna@Satori Design for Living said...

I love how you show your summer and winter looks- so clever! The room is gorgeous!

Eris @ The Pink House Reno said...

I love every single thing about this room. That pop of color version makes me so jealous. If you add a greek key trim to anything, I'm obsessed. I love neutrals that you can always change up. What great talent. Your vision really came to life. Loving all your hacks!

Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell said...

Looks great Pam! I really love the idea of the mirrors behind the nightstands - might have to borrow that one! And the ostrich...it's amazing.

SHERRY HART said...

OK...what the heck....before I go any further you had time to not only style it one way but 2? You are superwoman. Now let's talk about the room. Boom. It is gorgeous. The bed and bedding is crazy good. Love the painted chippendale chair and that little vignette . The walls and the large Ikea mirrors are a great idea to add more space to the room. Pam...you are good and forget about those dressers.

Calypso In The Country said...

The room truly is stunning Pam! Those walls are amazing and I love all the layering. And of course that Rio is one precious dog!

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Looks so fabulous! I had no idea you and Mr. S were married in Italy, so romantic! Absolutely love that you tied that 'detail' into your room.

the misfit said...

I've been following along with the ORC and I wanted to actually leave a comment. This room is stunning and that's great work and I covet the TV console, but most of all I have to say that that headboard is INSANELY GORGEOUS. That goes down in the annals of craigslist finds! I was proud of the antique headboard I just found (and I am still going to buy it!), but mine is nothing on that. Very impressive.

Albertina M. Cisneros said...

beautiful!! its so regal!! Congrats Pam this is amazing!! And I love all the hacks (the rast is masterful but so are the mirrors) you included.

Tiffany said...

I'm so impressed. I love everything about your room. Love the stencil and the headboard is amazing. All the details are perfect. And we are definitely kindred spirits when it comes to our love of Homegoods and mixing metals:)
