Before Redesign-Melanie's Master Bedroom

Melanie has a Master Bedroom that we'll be redesigning and featuring on Monday.

Bedroom Before

Here's what she's shared with us about her goals for the space and her style:

What are your favorite home decor/design stores?

  • As recent college graduates, we frequent Target, IKEA, and Pier 1 Imports.  We love budget-friendly stores of any kind.

What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

  • Busy, Creative, Cheerful.

What 3 words would you use to describe the feeling you'd like in the space?

  • Clean, Modern, Bright.

What is the most important thing you'd like in the space?

  • Versatility!  In a small space, it is really important for everything to have multiple functions, even if one of its functions is just to make the space look dang good!

What are your two favorite colors?

  • Kiwi green, or those cheery, modern green we see all the time nowadays, and bright, punchy colors like orange and hot pink.  I'm not sure the husband agrees with me on the hot pink, but he didn't win this giveaway!

What are two of your least favorite colors?

  • (I had a purple room throughout High School... I'm purpled out.)  and Navy Blue.  Ahoy.

What are the overall dimensions of your space?

  • 10x12, with an obnoxious uncovered entry to our bathroom.

Is there anything else you'd like us to consider?

  • If possible, a place to sit with a newborn.  Also, our apartment has NO overhead lighting (what were they THINKING???) so our room is really dim and my husband can't stand it.  We are in a rental, so painting isn't possible but I am not opposed to other ways to put color on walls.

So, do you guys have any suggestions for Melanie?  Check back Monday to see what the designer thinks!

Don't forget to submit your own space!  We'd love to help!

Already done a project of your own?  See if it qualifies to enter our design challenge!
