Before: Dingy and Disheveled
When newlyweds Jeff and Tamara bought their home a year ago, they started a massive renovation project. But their work stopped abruptly when life presented them with some unexpected ups and downs. While they got the great news that they were expecting their first child, they also found out two months later that Tamara had cancer. Needless to say, they quickly shelved plans to finish the house and began what seemed like an endless stream of medical appointments.
Fast-forward a year and things are on the upswing. Baby Jasmine has been welcomed into the world, and Tamara has been given a clean bill of health. But since the couple's bedroom was left unfinished during their renovation, it was important to Jeff that it be completed and transformed into an oasis in which Tamara could relax with their daughter. So after receiving his letter asking for help, I grabbed my crew and geared up to give the family a bedroom sanctuary that would help them unwind after a tough year.
The existing bedroom was bland, boring and very blue. It needed more light, more storage and an airier, more contemporary look. To give it the soothing, peaceful vibe I wanted, I looked to nature for my colors, fabrics and finishes.
