Marti's master bedroom makeover was a slow and steady labor of love. Her first move was to tackle the too-bright purple paint and choose a color that was a little more serene. After that, she mixed DIY projects with budget finds for a chic and calm bedroom.

From Marti: We've lived in our house for a little over one year now, and our bedroom has come a long way. There was certainly nowhere to go but up! The only good thing about this bedroom's original purple paint is that it makes the after photos look so much better.

That sign taped on the sloped wall was for our painter: it says "paint angled walls Irish Mist." The ceiling is a flat off-the-shelf white, and the walls (including the slanted sections) are Irish Mist from Behr. The room looks much less choppy and steep without the stark contrast of purple vs. white.

Thank you, Marti! You can see a ton more on Project Palermo.
