all in a day's work...

Did you all see this one day makeover in the July/August House Beautiful?  I was waiting for them to post it on their website to post cleaner copies of these photographs…BUT they never did and these scanned copies will have to do.   

Amanda Nisbet had one day to makeover this bedroom…

The Before at 8:30 A.M. :
The After at 5:47 P.M. :
hello headboard...
I thought the space was inviting and cozy, but still stylish and chic.  And, I also love the pops of yellow from the lamp, vase and headboard.  Yellow is the perfect color for the bedroom, keeps the grumps a bit more cheerful when it's bright and early.  Also, I LOVE the sconces flanking the window!  I could go on an on, but I want to know your thoughts?  Would you be thrilled to come home to a new bedroom after work? I know I would!

  1. I loved this article -- the headboard is definitely the best part.

  2. I think the simplicity of the sconces, the headboard and the way the bed is crisply made is so inviting.
    All I want to do is bring my book, and read in that bed, but of course, my underlying m.o. would be a "nap~"

  3. Oh yeah, Wow!
    It's an amazing transformation for sure and on top of all the new deliciousness it made the room seem so much larger and more spacious!

  4. I love it. I would love the challenge of redecorating in one day, but I would also love to have their budget (or seemingly lack thereof)

  5. love it. bet they designed it way before hand. it's probably more of a one day installation.

    zoe's present for you is here. when can I come by?

  6. I loved this makeover too! How gorgeous is that headboard fabric!!??

  7. Oh wow, that looks amazing! Love that lime green.
