Host Joan Steffend and designer Nan Sloan give newlyweds a master bedroom that has a sleek, sophisticated and contemporary look.
$29 — Paint
The walls are painted a soft taupe color and enhanced with horizontal stripes that tie in with the homeowners' curtains. Two thin raspberry-colored stripes are painted on either side of a darker taupe stripe midway up the wall.
- walls: Behr — Beaverwood 3A12-5
- accent paint for stripe: Behr — Wild Cattail 3B12-6
$17 — Headboard
The headboard is created out of foam, batting and fabric stapled directly to the wall. The top edge is trimmed with molding to hide the rough edges.
$140 — Platform Bed
A streamlined king-size platform bed becomes the room's focal point.
$129 — Bedding
Sloan uses a toile pattern for the duvet and backs and trims it with red cotton to help unify the color scheme.
$52 — Cushion
The homeowners' bench is brought back in the room with a new coat of black paint and topped with a new upholstered cushion.
$36 — Vase
Sloan finds a great display piece in another room and brings it into the bedroom. She tops it with a new contemporary vase and the homeowners' carved wood sculpture.
- white ceramic vase: Cost Plus World Market — #23444751
$31 — Wall Art
Wall art is created out of rattan place mats, fabric scraps and carved coasters. For each, Sloan covers a foam core square with fabric, hot-glues a coaster to the top, then hot-glues the entire piece to a place mat.
