Unorganized Potential

Unorganized Potential

Cluttered and unorganized, this bedroom had potential, but lacked stylish pieces and storage to tie the room together.

Light fabrics with bright accents give the room a much-needed openness. The ottoman and the bedside tables provide storage, while the fun striped rug adds a playful touch.

Mismatched Clutter

With features such as a plastic globe hanging from the ceiling and a brightly patterned pillow against a pastel bed, this bedroom was full of odd collectibles that clashed.

A complementary palette of cool blues, whites, and touches of gold update this bedroom with a soothing coastal vibe.  The headboard features convenient built-in storage while the painted door and quilt add a touch of country flair.

Empty Porch

The spacious wraparound porch had amazing views and much more room than the original bedroom.

Moving the bedroom into an enclosed portion of the wraparound porch gave the owners more space and a fresh-air feel. The room features painted gray floors, a sloped ceiling, and abundant windows. A simple white color palette with bright pops of green play up the beachy vibe.

Simply Outdated

Simply Outdated

An out-of-style bedspread combined with mismatched red furniture makes this bedroom feel straight out of the early ’90s.

Freshly painted walls and a statement art piece bring the room back to the new millennium. Painted turquoise floors provide modern contrast to antique touches such as the headboard and bedside table.

The Minimalist

Boring, plain walls, dingy floral prints, and old rocking chairs are nowhere near beach-chic.

A Soothing Update

Country-style linens and sweet painted shutters bring charm and style to the small space. The upholstered headboard and glass bedside lamps give a sense of luxury.

Bare Bones

The empty space has great views of the Intracoastal Waterway, but awkwardly spaced windows provided a challenge when decorating.

A large coastal print gives the room personality, while the addition of a third window allows light in and takes full advantage of the beautiful outside view.

Architectural Interest

The vaulted ceilings and unique angles of this room made it a prime spot to add character and style.

Pattern Play

As the true focal point, the bed is bordered by custom crown molding and a canopy. The homeowners mixed various blue and rust-colored patterns in fabrics for interest, as well as a floral pattern on curtains behind the bed. The upholstered headboard and intricate mirror add a sense of luxury.

Put to Better Use

The homeowners decided that this small, cramped kitchen could be a perfect fit for their bedroom instead.

Cheerful Transformation

The combination of bright walls with a playful bedspread creates a lighthearted mood in the kitchen-turned-bedroom. The tall, dark bed frame adds a touch of contrast and provides extra storage.

A Fresh Start

This bedroom started as a blank canvas, with a unique pair of sliding doors that added interest.

Neutral colors and a bare canopy frame create a relaxing mood while a bamboo shade adds a beachy touch and lets in natural light. Sepia-tone pictures at the entrance of the bedroom enhance the comfortable tone.

Out-of-Style Storage

A bulky, outdated storage unit serves as the headboard in this style-deprived bedroom.

Coastal Cottage Chic

Removing the storage unit and adding light colors with unique window shutters gives the room a welcoming, cottage feel. The bed’s dark wood accents provide contrast and complement the open feel.
