Restful Bedroom Retreat
See how this magazine designer wakes up her Birmingham bedroom with a chic, low-budget makeover.
Floral Fabric InspirationWhen Coastal Living style director Heather Chadduck came across a fresh floral fabric by Victoria Hagan Home Collection, it inspired a large-scale makeover. “I immediately wanted to upholster every inch of my bedroom with this gorgeous floral!” Heather says. “The muted tones and oversize scale keep the design from feeling too girlie.”
Like most who have fallen in love with the “perfect” fabric, Heather soon realized she couldn’t swathe every surface. “It was too expensive to use everywhere, so I had to make a few yards go a long way,” she says. She focused on creating a bed canopy and then used the leftover fabric for pillows and a desktop.
