Project Garrahy | Master Bedroom

I figure you're probably sick of the art kick I've been on so today I bring you the power of (wall) paint! I'm working with a client right now to help them spruce up their new condo before they move in. Last night I stopped by to check out the progress.  The first picture above shows what the master bedroom looked like in the real estate listing...not bad, but definitely not good....

The paint color was not awful but given that the room does not get a ton of natural light we decided to lighten things up a bit and paint the walls White Chocolate by Benjamin Moore.  Better and brighter.  To add interest to the neutral palette we are hanging a gorgeous textured wallpaper by Kneedler Fauchére behind the headboard.  I'm usually not a fan of the "accent wall" but I'll make an exception for pricey wallpaper.  The awkwardly placed sconces are getting the boot and new antique brass swing arm lights from Circa will be hung. I photoshopped the wallpaper and sconces into the picture above so you can get an idea of what it's going to look like. Pretty sophisticated, right? And don't you worry, the intense cherry floor will not longer be the first thing you notice when you walk in because we plan to cover it up with a lovely warm silver jute rug. It's going to look good, real good! 

Don't you just love how a few small changes can completely change the look and feel of a room? Just wait until you see the living room...


  1. Can't wait to see the living room, hah!
