Old World Master Bedroom Redesign

A master bedroom gets an Old World-style makeover. The Double Take team re-creates a $138,000 Old World bedroom for less than $2,600.

  • Homeowners Michelle and Glen Stern want a bedroom with a sophisticated look.
  • The dark furnishings and light-colored walls give this room a perfect balance of masculine and feminine characteristics.
  • This warm and inviting room is perfect for the couple.
  • Furnishings and accessories in the inspiration room are expensive — this room is created at a fraction of the cost.
  • Accent pillows complement the bedding.
  • The rug adds just the right punch of additional color.
  • This desk is a replica of a rare 17th-century antique.
  • A consignment store bar stool is transformed into a reproduction of a Scottish Orkney fishing-basket chair.
  • The two side tables add a modern touch to the room.
  • Sun-sensitive paper is used to replicate original oil paintings.
  • Personal treasures and store-bought finds give this room an Old World feel.
