This brand-new bedroom addition was in great condition but needed color and style to finish the look.
Lee Snijders, Summer Baltzer and Charles Burbridge liven up a bland bedroom with bold color and tropical accents.
Paint - $58
The white walls are banished beneath spicy orange paint. (wall paint: Ace Hardware - Spicy Curry Ace89-A)
Canopy Bed/Bed Frame - $255
Baltzer creates a canopy out of bamboo and fabric to give the bed an island feel. The bamboo frame is secured with epoxy and screws at each corner; sisal rope is wound around each for a decorative touch. (sari fabric: Cottage Art)
Frame - $10
Burbridge builds a frame for the homeowners' surf print.
Screen and Plants - $137
The homeowners' treadmill had to stay so Snijders hides it behind a screen and a tall plant. Other plants are brought in to contribute to the tropical design. (screen: Kmart - 79891920665)
Seating Area - $70
Two natural fiber chairs from a thrift store provide a nice spot to relax.
Mantel and Accessories - $275
The travertine on the fireplace is balanced with a new mantel that's decorated with a large mirror and assorted accessories. (mirror: Jackalope West)
Artwork - $69
Snijders uses a palm print to inspire two pieces of custom art. He enlarges the print, traces it onto 1/2-inch birch plywood then cuts out the design with a jig saw. The plywood is put into a shadow-box frame so that it protrudes from the wall to show off the wall color behind it. Molding with a thatched design finishes off the rough edges.
