San Francisco Victorian Before and Afters - Master Bedroom

The other room we did for this lovely young family was the Master Bedroom.   The clients wanted this room to be light and bright like the front room but it was on the opposite end of the house where there was less natural light streaming in.  There was also a serious need for more storage while also wanting to upgrade to a king so we needed to maximize every inch of space.  

Here is what the room looked like before...

We went with an overall light and airy color palette with lots of bright and warm whites but they didn't want it feeling too neutral so added some darker colors for contrast along with big bright pillows on the bed.  We also took advantage of those high ceilings to put in a dramatic chandelier which not only gives off great light but is a gorgeous addition to the room!  

Check out what a transformation the room took….

One of the most impressive additions was the IKEA Pax wardrobe we completely made over for the space.  We had to go with the shallower frame to make it work in the space but it still added a significant amount of storage.  We gave it a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore Steep Cliff Gray and had custom mirrors cut to inset on the doors (which we upgraded to the hemnes doors).  The mirrors drastically lightened up both the darker color of the pax and the room itself.  And of course we had to finish it off with these brass bar pulls.

The one other main challenge in the room was finding a king headboard and nightstand combo that fit on the wall where they would be going.  We used these great nightstands that are not only small scale but still add some extra storage.  And to keep the surface area open we did plug in sconces so there was no need to add electrical and the nightstands weren't being taken over by lamps.
