We’ve had a rush of projects come to an end here in the last month or two. This little renovation has been lifechanging for the family involved. While on some projects I am deeply involved from the planning stages right through to completion, some projects I am only a little involved in. This reno is one of those, where we have homeowners who have their fingers right on the decorating pulse and therefore my role was restricted to the window coverings for this gorgeous master bedroom reveal.
While the builder has helped out with the design and build, I’ve had the pleasure of watching it all evolve. This home has been taken from a 3 bedroom 1 one bathroom workers cottage to 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and indoor laundry with a kitchen that has to be seen to be believed! (stay tuned for more on that one!!)
This young family now have the space that they require for their kids to grow while maintaining the luxury of some parental privacy, well except for the dog 🙂
The master bedroom was originally located in the old part of the home and the family had to share a bathroom. With 2 kids, this wasn’t ideal, likewise, the laundry under the house was becoming tiring. We added an extension to house, the new master bedroom, walk-in robe, ensuite, a new family bathroom and laundry. This then left space for the kitchen to double in size with its makeover.
As part of the extension, a bank of signature coloured glass windows were set to be removed, to make way for a new wall and doorway. With clever planning, the builder was able to reuse the windows in the new master bedroom, to make it feel like it had always been there. Fortunately, the homeowners were set to use a crisp white paint, which has brought out so much more of the colour in the windows, a classic feature of local Ipswich homes.
With windows that are such a feature of the room, our homeowners were unsure if they wanted to cover them at all, however, they didn’t want to not have the privacy they needed. Together with Victory Curtains and Blinds, we worked together to create the perfect sheers, to add to the room without taking away from the stunning historical glass.
Victory made the process really easy for all of us, with a consultant arriving to help us make all the required choices. With so many options in fabric, length, curtain design and hanging options, it was really beneficial to utilize the consultant’s skills to help us make the right choices.
Once the consultation was done, a team was sent to check measure and before we knew it, these gorgeous curtains were complete and ready for this weeks install.
Together we chose a really soft grey, much softer in colour than it appears here. The sunlight streaming through them has changed the colour as so often happens in rooms filled with light. The grey provides the perfect contrast to the clean, bright, white on the walls, adding a real feeling of depth and opulence to this master bedroom reveal!
With only the floors left to be sanded, this part of the extension can nearly be marked complete. I know one family member who is particularly happy about it.
It has been a dream to work with clients who have been hands-on in their project. The gorgeous set of drawers in this room were sourced and painted by the homeowners, as was the creation of the barn door, made from a simple internal door. This project has been filled with joy from day one and we can’t wait to share some more with you!
