This bedroom was a blank slate begging for color and personality. A blue palette was already established, but it lacked any punch, and mismatched bedside tables flanked a bed without a headboard. Like most people, the homeowner did not have a limitless budget, so we used some things she already had, did painting projects ourselves when we could, and spent wisely on a few new purchases. Lastly, it was important that not everything in the room seem brand new but instead feel personal and collected.
