Hide CaptionShow CaptionA new color palette completely transforms this once dark bedroom into a soothing master suite.
The room is now soothing and warm, thanks to the new neutral color palette. Removing the dark rug in the middle of the room reveals fabulous hardwood floors that not only add to that palette, but also makes the space look larger. A new king-size headboard, fresh bedding, pillows, window treatments and accessories complete the transformation.
