In honor of our Bedroom Makeover Giveaway with Crane & Canopy, we pulled together three of our favorite bedroom makeovers from expert interior designers and homeowners just like you. With these rooms as inspiration and our $500 bedding and art giveaway (which you can enter for a chance to win here), you’ll be one step closer to making your dream bedroom a reality.
Put a Frame On It
DesignSponge featured this bedroom makeover from interior designer Shannon Kaye. There are a lot of DIY touches that look absolutely stunning (interior designer-approved). Beyond the new wall color and fancy bedding, we love the bold photographs (framed perfectly) hanging on the wall.
Happy in the Hamptons
Housebeautiful editor Frances Schultz worked on her East Hampton home renovations one room at a time. It’s pretty darn cool to turn an arched wall into a vanity, but what really catches the eye is the art. Look at that gorgeous gallery wall.
Paintings and Pillows
Don’t have a mirror that you can perfectly fit into the enclaves of your room? You can make a difference in your bedroom without grand gestures. Simply adding colorful throw pillows and a beautiful painting above your headboard can make your bedroom a whole new space. This bedroom makeover was featured in the wonderful Apartment Therapy.
Are you inspired yet? Enter our giveaway and you’ll earn $250 to Crane & Canopy as well as $250 to UGallery. It’s a perfect place to start. Have fun and get to makeover-ing: http://www.ugallery.com/giveaway.aspx
We couldn’t resist. PINNING IS ADDICTIVE! Before UGallery is shipped off to Pinners Anonymous, we decided to give all our UGal pals a pinning project to tackle. Have fun with it. We can’t wait to see what you decide to pin.
If you need help getting started, check out my sample board! Designs I forgot about resurfaced in response to Royal Jarmon’s Positive Allergies II! Something as simple as a Pinterest board with 6 pins can show the power of art. For example, Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s alphabet is obscure, but fits so well with this painting. Can you imagine this painting hanging in Adolf Loos’s Villa Müller? Bold, I know. That is what I love about art. I can make daring connections without worrying about who agrees. So go ahead. Create a board. And pin away.
