A contemporary design for a master bedroom includes new headboard, bedding and dressers.

Host Joan Steffend and designer Peggy Sellwood create a contemporary, creative retreat in an undecorated master bedroom.

The walls are painted a light coral color. The wood floors are painted in big black and white squares. (wall paint: Hirshfield's - LRV34, Honey Suckle Coral, 7814D)

A trio of wood and iron wall hangings are painted silver and attached to a fabric-covered headboard. (metal floral plaques: Michaels - Garden Ways, 89051)

The homeowner's dressers are painted a rich cranberry color and dressed up with new drawer pulls. (paint: Hirshfield's: LRV-18, Monterey Rose, 8395D)

$7 - Poster
An existing dresser is jazzed up with cut poster pieces on the drawer fronts.

$37 - Doors
The closet doors are embellished with silver-painted frames and silver joint compound (applied with a paint scraper), which creates the look of aged mirrors.

$40 - Mirror
Pieces of mirror are adhered to the panels on an old door, which is then attached to the wall above the dresser to make it look like one large furniture piece.

$46 - Accessories

$44 - Lamps
Two table lamps and a floor lamp brighten up the room.
