Living through a renovation is difficult at times. It becomes really hard to remember how far you’ve come. You tend to focus on how far you are yet to go. Although I had not lived through a renovation before this one, I knew that we would need a space to be able to relax in at the end of the day, and therefore insisted that we make our own bedroom a priority. It was in fact the first room to be completely finished. It’s our space to get away, and provided us the opportunity to begin and end each day with a positive, especially important when not only living in a renovation, but working on other renovations all day every day. Life can begin to feel like a renovation.
Our bedroom is a lovely romantic space, but it wasn’t always this way. For the first time, here are some before photos.
How about those drapes! The floral fabric on the window seat, the beautiful cream walls with light green trims?!? Obviously we had a dream space to work with, the ceiling in all the house were perfect, the spaces upstairs also exactly what we needed. In this room the first thing to go, were the window dressings, then a change of paint, and finally a dress up with furniture and soft furnishings to match.
It has taken a great deal of work and planning, but we are so happy with the outcome. It’s romantic, relaxing while also being warm and inviting. The perfect spot for us to begin and end each day. It is exactly as we dreamed on our little Pinterest board all that time ago.
How do you like our space? Have you ever used Pinterest to inspired a transformation in your home?
