There is nothing like a dramatic room transformation! It makes me so happy! Adding colour and styling will bring YOU joy too.
If you live in the lower mainland (and we will be back in Calgary or Edmonton soon), send me your photos! You could be featured on my next Colour Rescue.
I completed two Colour Rescue Makeovers in 3 days this week in Dallas. It was epic! Rhonda had been following me since 2015, she had the perfect timeless white kitchen in the bungalow she shared with her husband Rick.
She sent in a spare bedroom she wanted to turn into an indoor she-shed. A spare room can be such a great space to get creative with! Here’s a cute one below, love the green!
Here’s her room before (below). The reason she had the bed centered against the wall was that she had visions of turning it into a daybed. She also wanted an etagere for her orchids in front of the window.
Many of us have that neglected spare bedroom that has a danger of turning into a junk/storage room because well, any room that isn’t decorated just doesn’t get the same love that a decorated room gets.
She only needed a 5 x 7 area rug but selection was bleak when we got to Homegoods. When decorating a bedroom, it’s easiest if you start with the area rug or bedding.
We headed over to the bedding department and found this fabulous, dramatic William Morris bedding. Then after adding some coordinating pink pillows to our pile, we headed over to the art department.
I was just about to suggest we hit a different store when Anita found the large floral artwork which we all immediately fell in love with!
This is the email I received from Rhonda the next morning:
“I was so keyed up I hardly slept at all. I will be taking my video calls on that day bed!! Just plop my laptop on that pretty little faux marble table and zoom away (well, in my case MS Teams away)!!! It was a great time and I don’t know if I will ever come off Cloud 9!!”
Colour Rescue: Updating a Spare Bedroom
Head over to watch this week’s colour rescue makeover to see how it all came together!
If you live in the lower mainland (or Calgary or Edmonton we will be back there not sure when) and you have a room that needs a makeover, you can apply here.
Remember, this is my sister Anita and I with our iPhones. This isn’t an intimidating full-camera set up when we interview you. Just in case you are worried about that.
