This ballerina bedroom is a little girl's dream. Featuring victorian furniture and opulent finishes, this bedroom is made grand with oversize wood trim, curtains, and chandeliers. The seat at the dressing table is wrapped in tulle and a chaise lounge for relaxing is nearby.
This elegant traditional bedroom has a number of beautiful touches, from the coffered ceiling to the Federal-style rug. The walls and fireplace surround are painted in a creamy white as a backdrop to the furnishings. The floral-patterened window treatment and bed canopy add a fun visual element to the space and a tufted chair in front of the fireplace creates a sitting area under a large wrought iron chandelier.
A designer's work is never actually done. For most designers there is always a little something extra that could be done to take our designs to the next level. However, the only thing I could find to do in the Blehm's master sitting area was to adjust the lampshade because the room and its views were flawlessly picturesque. In this space, Angela used one of my favorite hospitality-inspired design tricks. She concealed the drapery hardware behind the crown moulding, thereby creating a clean and elevated look. The moulding becomes the cornice and the pleated linen drapery opens to expose the outdoors like a movie screen. How's that for drama?! My number one pick in this image is the upholstered bench. It manages to be retro, mod, and current all at the same time. Angela's is fearless in her use of white furniture and rugs throughout the family home. She's proof that it can be done, not to mention, done with her three young children and pets!
With rich colors of blue and red complimenting this tan bedspread, this DIY project becomes a stand out feature. Four basic pillows hung on a curtain rod make a custom headboard with matching color accents and give added dimension to this room.
In the last of the home's expansive bedrooms, designers made functional use of the space by creating a sleeping space, defined by a neutral, shag carpet, a sitting area that faces the beautiful view of New York City and a work space with a simple, modern desk.
This new bedroom located on the second floor at the back of the home was previously the second floor bathroom and laundry area. The space has been transformed into a unique L-shaped bedroom with new wood floors, a large closet, bright wall colors, and an accent wall with a night city scene as wallpaper.
