A New Bedroom Update

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

I wanted to share an online bedroom project I recently finished that I think came out so pretty. My client Beth, had wanted to update her bedroom into a new, bright and fresh space.

She decided to use her existing bedroom furniture which is a darker stained wood. She had also recently painted the room with Ben Moore Palladian Blue HC-144:

I found this fabric for her because she wanted something a little more custom in the room without spending too much. This fabric will be made in window panels and a long boudoir pillow for the bed:

I suggested white bedding which she loved:

Lexington Quilt + Shams – Pearl

And here is the final design board:

One of the easiest, least expensive and quickest way to update your bedroom is so simple, you will wonder why you did not think of it yourself!

If you are still living with a matching dresser and mirror set that you purchased over ten years ago, it is time to get rid of that matchy-match look and bring some personality into your bedroom!

I know they came as a set, but imagine how original you can be with a different mirror! The sizes and shapes of mirrors today are endless in variety and you can find a great mirror at a very reasonable price.

Here are a couple I love from Lamps Plus:

Mirrored Frame 35 1/2" Wide Moonlight Wall Mirror

Sunrays 32" Wide Antique Silver Wall Mirror

You can also find some great-looking inexpensive mirrors at big box stores such as Target:

- Brown/Natural Wall Mirror

Lowes:

Global Direct 42" x 32" Dorigrass Rectangle Framled Mirror

And Home Depot:

Another easy, inexpensive way to update your existing mirror is to paint it like I did in my room here:

Another original idea with mirrors:

If you like the idea of your mirror and dresser matching, that is fine! But if you are looking for ideas to bring some personality and originality to an old dresser set, I hope I have given you a few new ideas!

Does your dresser and mirror match together as a set? Or have you made changes to the mirror or dresser?
