The main bedroom at the Evergreen house was small and cramped before! We had quite a bit of rearranging to do. The main bathroom used to be in here too, but we were able to use some of an adjacent bedroom to gain more closet space and to make this bedroom feel a little more spacious.
Check out that weird little pass through that goes to the kitchen! We think it was for plumbing access. We closed it up though!
Here you can see where we kept one of the old closets (on the left) and we gave up the old closet on the right for the water closet in the new en suit bathroom.
We also had quite a bit of restoration work to do on this original steel corner window. The previous homeowner had retrofitted the window to accommodate a window air conditioning unit. We added central air during the renovation and restored the missing steel pieces and window panes.
These windows, even after restoration, are not the most energy efficient, but the two we kept in the house (the other is in the kitchen breakfast nook) were luckily on the north east corners, so they don’t really ever get that burning hot direct sun. We replaced the rest of the windows in the home with more energy efficient windows that matched the black steel corner windows.
These corner windows are SO pretty! They are a little tricky to dress though, so we left them bare for the staging, but recommended outside mount flat shades to the new homeowners, or custom corner curtain rods. You can hire metalworkers to make these for you. I would show them a photo of these rods as my inspo!
I always start with a rug when decorating a room. Like truly 99% of the time, I won’t pick anything until I have the rug decided on/in the space. Rugs are HARD. They are usually a big investment and the colors aren’t usually represented accurately in listing photos. I found this Loloi rug on Amazon, and while I really do love it, the colors were punchier in person than I expected based on the listing photos. I was glad I waited on selecting other items until I had the rug in the space. The rug was begging to be the star of the space, so we went a little softer on the other decorative elements, like the bedding and the art.
You guys I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS LINEN BEDDING. It is also from Amazon and it is amazing! The homeowners bought a lot of our staging pieces, including this bedding, but I loved it so much I bought a new set (in the king size – both the duvet set and the linen sheets) for my own bedroom.
We found this chaise(similar) on Amazon too! The upholstery is a gorgeous washed and brushed canvas in a blue-gray color. I love the wood base!
I don’t have any photos of the inside of the closets (haha – there’s a TON of staging stuff hidden in there!), but behind those sliding doors is a really big closet with tons of storage. I was so happy with the new layout of this space. There’s a smaller, but still good sized closet on the other side of the room to the right of the bed.
The art above the bed is called White Sands from photographer Sarah Ellfeson that we sell in Juniper Print Shop. This is the 55″ print size, that we cut down to fit in the 22×55″ IKEA Bjorksta frame. I love this look for over a queen or king sized bed!
The caned bed was one of my favorite purchases for the space. I love the color and the texture! The nightstands look PERFECT next to the bed. That blue-green-gray color is my forever favorite color and I love the black pulls!
What other questions can I answer for you?! I love this pretty space and am so glad the new homeowners love it too!
