Just a quick check-in with a progress report on this project in Edina, where a child’s bedroom is being given a grown-up makeover into a comfortable guest bedroom. The custom-made, grommeted curtains, pictured, set the tone for a modern vibe.
We’ve swapped in a queen-size bed with upholstered headboard for the old twin, and sent the pastel floral wallpaper packing for a calming, matte blue shade from Sherwin Williams (Meditative, SW 6227. It was chosen to match a piece of the client’s furniture, built by her daughter and husband, and one that was off-limits to change). More on that piece, which is seven feet tall, in the final project post.
Here’s a quick reminder of the “before” !
This end table was lacquered Chinese red when I procured it for this room. Chosen specifically for the pattern on each side, I had it spray-finished in a glossy coat of Meditative. The high gloss contrasts nicely with the matte walls.
It’s a beautiful foil for the curtains (which are mounted high to add height to the room. A top-down/bottom-up shade lets in light but affords privacy.)
They’re fabulous together!
This is a closeup of the blue-gray tones in the new sisal area rug.
Closing in on the end of this project. Linens are yet to arrive; black and white artwork has yet to be hung. Accessories are in transit. I ordered extra of the curtain fabric so the seamstress can add a contrasting band to the shams once the linens are in place.
This cozy retreat is almost guest-ready! More to come!
