From designer Katie: In this small and awkwardly-shaped bedroom, a space that once felt dark and cramped is now calm, bright and peaceful, without even a drop of new paint! New furniture to better fit the space, as well as a re-imagined layout, subtle art and good styling gave this room completely new life.

Soft neutrals play an important role in this room, as the cohesion unifies the awkward angles and creates a sense of calm. This bedroom is part of a downtown condo with tight square footage, and by making this room so inviting, it really enlarges the entire home by providing another space for alone time, lounging, reading or even doing some yoga stretches on the rug runner! The family who lives here can spread out a bit!
