A Serene Sophisticated Bedroom Makeover

Do you have a guest bedroom that is in need of a makeover? Or a master bedroom that could use a more relaxing, serene and sophisticated feeling? Well this design may just be what you're looking for.

For today's virtual room, we'll create a bedroom design using a color palette of soft buttery yellows and soft grays.

We will start as usual with our walls. We will paint the walls in a soft yellow from Sherwin Williams called SW6687 Lantern Light

Next will be introduce our bed. An upholstered headboard is a great alternative to a traditional wood framed or metal bed. It is more comfortable to lean against for reading in bed. It gives a softer sophisticated feel to a bedroom. We have hit the right balance with the feminine lines of this queen headboard coupled with the more masculine gray fabric and nailhead trim. Our headboard is from Norwalk Furniture.

Next we will introduce our bedding. This beautiful paisley print semi-custom bedding from Legacy Linen is perfect. The soft gray and limestone color is definitely adding to the serene feel we are trying to accomplish in this room.

We will add a couple of yellow linen euro shams to pull our color scheme together. We will use this butter yellow linen fabric from Kast Fabrics called Linette Cornsilk and a matelasse coverlet made from this beautiful fabric from Kravet called Sand Dollar Natural

Next we'll add our nightstands. We'll add two of these beautiful pewter hand-painted demilune chests from Steinworld on either side of the bed

We'll add a couple of table lamps on each nightsatnd.

And a few table side accessories

Next we will need a dresser for storage. This beautiful, bow front, mirrored top dresser from Worlds Away is the perfect scale for the room. This will allow enough room for a seating area.

We'll add a mirror above our dresser. This beautiful silver leaf, antiqued mirror from Worlds Away is great because it's not matchy matchy but speaks to the silver and gray tones in the room.

I always like to add a bench at the foot of a bed to anchor the bed, and just an area to sit and put shoes on. We'll add this cute slip covered bench from C.R. Laine. We'll reupholster our bench in this beautiful fabric from Vervain. We will skip the rouching for a more tailored look.

We'll add a chair to our room as well. Great for reading a book or just relaxing. This great chair from Candice Olson Collection at Norwalk Furniture, done in this yellow linen fabric with nail head trim is perfect for the room. We'll also add a pillow in the Kravet fabric below

We'll add a floor lamp to this "reading" area. This arc lamp from Trend Lighting is a great choice

Next we'll add our drapery. We'll do two simple pinch pleat panels done in this beautiful fabric from Thom Filicia Collection for Kravet called Griffith Fog.

Now that we have all our furniture pieces, we'll add some accessories and ceiling lighting.

Our room is now complete. Any guest would love to fall asleep in this beautiful, serene getaway. Hope you are inspired to create the home of your dreams.

My top three "Fun Finds"of the week

This beautiful scrolled, bow front chest from Worlds Away is a great addition to a bedroom. Would look great as nightstands.

These iron tables (a cocktail table and an end table) from Rustic Living, are definitely gonna catch the eyes of your guests. They are as beautiful as tehy are functional
