3 stunning design changes to decorate a bedroom without replacing furniture!

Perhaps you don’t want to replace your dresser, chest & bed, but you’d like a new more contemporary look for your bedroom? That’s the case in the below Winston Salem home. As part of our interior design service, we brought in a more contemporary chair, local art options to choose from, a silver leaf end table, new lamps, and a small gray pouf to replace the over sized ottoman. 
And Wha La! The room feels completely transformed.  In real life the new colors and textures are such as dramatic transformation. If you like color, hopefully these fabrics and bedding fabrics will inspire you! If you like texture, check out the amazing bedroom lamps and bedroom mirror! 
1) You’ll achieve major impact with custom drapes & colorful art! 

Custom drapes like below can be a ONE WAY DRAW, and still be wide enough to block all the light. Plus, they can be hung OUTSIDE the frame so you don’t block any light or view when they’re pulled open. Custom drapes can have black out lining. Custom window treatments can be made from luxurious imported linen, or other nice fabrics to add a beautiful texture. Notice below, after our client selected from our art options, it was easy for us to recommend the perfect gray paint tone for their bedroom walls. This bedroom is now a soothing oasis. It feels eclectic, even though we didn’t replace the bedroom set. It’s unique, and more functional, due to custom drapes.

2) Replace the mirror that came with the “matching set”! 

This small change creates such impact. The mirror and lamp below have a concrete finish, that is stunning in real life, though hard to capture in a photo. 
3) Consider custom Bed shams! 

Perhaps there’s no need to replace the duvet cover or coverlet? But at least consider custom shams! Custom bed shams are amazing. Why? Several reasons: They’re about 8″ wider than store bought. The fabric is thicker, more durable, and can add a yummy texture. Plus, they will hide your sheets! Consider all your options! If you hire a designer, you can ask that they quote both (ready made as well as custom).

After viewing the above “quick fix” updates, you can see that a master bedroom can feel luxurious without replacing the furniture!  For Winston Salem, NC or Greensboro,NC  Interior design questions, check out hundreds of  before and after photos in this blog.
