Roman-Inspired Bedroom

The Double Take team re-creates a $38,000 Roman-inspired bedroom for less than $1,900.


At the foot of the bed in the designer room is a custom-upholstered, embroidered silk wooden bench. The team found a bench in a catalog with similar clean lines and rich wood tone. They covered the bench with a throw from a discount linen store. The gold and red fabric is a great match to the original in color and texture.

Tip: Three good rules for do-it-yourself upholstery:

  1. Always fold over the edges so they stay neat.

  2. Make sure your fabric doesn't warp–don't pull it too tightly.

  3. Put your first staple in the center and work outward from there.
