The homeowner wanted to redesign their college-aged daughter's bedroom in a way that reflected her older age and personality. In addition to a more adult look to the sleeping area, she needed an organized study space, too. The homeowner's daughter loves everything having to do with France and wanted us to incorporate that theme. She also asked for a lighter feel to the design with color and also minimal pattern.
The biggest issue in their bedroom before I got my hands on it was the warmth factor. The space just felt too cold. Their previous furniture was circa 1990 and was too matchy-matchy and way too contemporary for the rest of the home. The walls were covered in a goldenrod paint color that matched the hardwood floors, and they really needed a large area rug.
I think working on this project, I was reminded to have a stronger voice in my designs. Some clients are able to see an end result, and some will feel initially more comfortable with staying with what they have and just updating in small ways. These clients were a joy to work with, but we would have progressed more quickly with the re-design had I communicated the benefits of changing the color scheme and furniture layout in a different way from the start.
Consider the occupant's age. For a room in which adults will sleep, neutral shades are popular, but don't be afraid of color. Rich reds and warm browns can create a sultry and romantic mood; gold tones can add a sense of luxury. Consider an accent wall, such as the wall behind the bed's headboard, in a bright or dark color if you feel timid about adding too much color.
