Before & After: Yoannah's DIY Bedroom Mural

We have highlighted Yoannah's creativity before (Yoannah's Inspirational Bedroom Makeover and Yoannah's Bedroom Update) — her gold puzzle pieces remain one of the most unique art installations we've seen grace the walls of any bedroom. Unafraid to take chances, Yoannah specializes in large-scale art that truly personalizes her space. As her master bedroom evolves, we are delighted she continues to share her updates with the community.

As if the purple walls and red accents didn't give this room enough pizzazz, Yoannah has really upped the wow factor by creating a magnificent and one of kind mural on the wall next to her vanity table. Using a projector to cast the image on the wall, she meticulously traced the shadowed areas to create her pattern. Filling in the outline took hours of painstaking work to stay inside the lines and achieve the necessary depth of color and coverage. The final result is a dramatic one of a kind piece that anchors that corner of the bedroom.

I love the contrast between the small black and white photos on the left and the large graffic image on the right. The decision to switch the original curtains for these bolder panels and to relocate the bright red chair from the bedside to the vanity helps to pull the whole space together and lends a more curated feel to the room. Thanks again Yoannah for sharing your creative master bedroom with us all!
