You all loved the #MGDxNellieGail main bedroom on Instagram, and today we’re excited to share a closer look at the full-scale renovation of the space! Much of the home was outdated when we began working on this project in 2019, and the main bedroom was no exception. From dated floral wallpaper and heavy drapes to roofline irregularities, we wiped the space clean to create the perfect blank slate for the new hotel-inspired bedroom design. Keep scrolling to see what the space looked like pre-renovation, and to see more photos of what’s there today!
The major non-cosmetic update in this space was cleaning up the roofline above the French doors. Since the goal for the space was a serene retreat, we wanted to keep the lines as sleek as possible. We updated the roofline, removed the arched window, and replaced the doors. For the flooring, we removed the carpet and used the same engineered wood flooring in the rest of the home. Lastly, as much as we love wallpaper, this dated floral design on all four walls didn’t make the cut. Below, you can see the modern pattern we replaced it with!
From dated and drab to bright and beautiful! Behind the bed, we opted for a patterned wallpaper to create an accent wall. The more modern pattern works in contrast with the other more traditional elements in the space, including the turned leg bed frame and custom floral settee. Overhead, we installed a rustic style light fixture to emphasize the high ceilings in the space.
Our clients requested a hotel-inspired bedroom design that felt like a relaxing retreat. A soft neutral palette helped us get there, while subtle touches of mauve throughout added a touch of fun personality. Our client’s favorite color is purple, and it was so fun for us to incorporate it in some of the key spaces in the home. Last but not least, we wanted to play with textures in the final design, so you’ll see cane details, burl wood, cozy boucle, and velvet touches throughout the space.
Psst… If you missed the before and after of the downstairs living room, head there to catch up! Plus, we’ve shared this entire project on the blog and on Instagram, so there’s lots more to browse if you’re loving this traditional-inspired home. Thanks so much for following along!
