Hide CaptionShow CaptionBefore, this bedroom looked like a college crash pad. By bringing in some cool furniture and color, it is now a hip and sophisticated retreat.
A new headboard made from fabric wrapped around art canvas brings in height and texture. Chic bedding, side-table shelves and new window treatments add a touch of contemporary elegance. In the master bathroom (not shown), new shower doors permanently fix the water damage problem, and updated fixtures give the room a clean, modern touch.
