Before: Boring Bedroom

The bedroom was once dreary and monochromatic.

After: Elegant Space

Mirror, mirror, on the wall? This daughter has all the necessities for at-home living: comfy bed, lots of storage, vanity table, sitting nook and workspace.

All Grown Up

A grown-up desk sets the mood, and for chit-chats with gal pals are two comfy club chairs with tufted ottoman in their own little corner.

Sitting Pretty

What growing-up lady doesn’t want her own vanity table for dolling up? This lucky daughter got her own in the room’s redesign.

Glamorous Touches

The rug added a soft rainbow of hues while mirrored nightstands add a glam accent.
