This bedroom was floor to ceiling beige and despite some really cool vintage pieces, it was all lost in the dark feeling given off by the beige cast. The bedroom after its transformation shows how a few simple changes can enhance the furnishings that already exist within a space.
There are two big changes that transformed this bedroom. The first was replacing the carpet with wood flooring to match the rest of the house. The second was covering the walls with the Phillip Jeffries wall covering Quilted Lacquer in white. This wallpaper is a heavy duty vinyl wall covering with a texture that makes you feel like you are living inside of a quilted Chanel handbag. With the shiny qualities in the wall covering it brightens the room one step further than a simple coat of white paint would do. The vintage nightstand/mirror combo blended in with the beige backdrop but the white really brings them out. Instead of using pink bedding, the gold Rococo style framed mirror was painted in Benjamin Moore's Razzle Dazzle, a fabulous fuschia.
