Total Transformation

Prior to the makeover, this master bedroom was in contractor-grade condition, from its neutral carpet to the beige paint on its walls. Taking inspiration from its colorful abstract art, the room received a new identity with shades of blue accented with fire-engine red.

Dresser Details

The overall design for the updated room included a mix of dark blues, texture, midcentury-modern lines and masculine touches. These elements were brought in through accessories including white ceramic sculpture, coral and plaid pillar candles.

Cool Sheen

Since the wet-look paint finish was meant to be the room's standout feature, its walls were sparsely decorated so as not to cover up the custom sheen. A small white resin moose head and graphic train station signage break up the monotony of the blue without overpowering the reflective finish of the walls.

Quick-Fix Carpet

The timeline for the redesign of the room was six days, due mostly in part to the quick installation of the floor. FLOR carpet tiles were installed after the existing wall-to-wall carpet was removed along with its padding. All that was needed for installation was a utility knife with extra blades as well as an L-square.
