Hide CaptionShow CaptionA soothing sage green and tan color scheme give this bedroom a much more mature feel.
Lead designer Brice Cooper and design coordinators Kelly Edwards and Ali Azhar replace the youthful purple with a serene sage green. Kelly makes window hangings that are cool to look at but don't obstruct the cool city view. Ali builds a hip platform bed using walnut, which is a versatile hardwood that fits their budget. Crisp new bedding and a plush tan rug tie the new color scheme together. Custom-made shelves, nightstands and new reading lamps round out the modern redo. This sleek, yet peaceful transformation reflects Krina's keen sense of style — all on a budget of less than $1,000.
