With a few inspirational photos to refer to, I came up with this for my master bedroom. The headboard was a really fun find from Craig’s List and the half painted wall was an idea I got from so many photos of rooms I had been pinning on Pinterest the last few months. I love it! I finally have an all white bedroom and it is sooo relaxing! I am considering painting out the 80s furniture, but now that everything else is all white I like it a little better. And I can pretend, perhaps, they are antiques, yes?
The duvet set and quilt is from Ikea. Love the wrinkles and feel of 100% pure linen. Thanks Ikea! The pillow is from Pistachio. Wall colours – Benjamin Moore Cloud White and Tapestry Beige.
I always say if you can get an electrician to move the chandelier spot so it sits perfectly centered over your dining table, go for it. But if it’s impossible, like in a condo with concrete ceilings, or if it is cost prohibitive, there are ways to make the swag look right.
You have to make it look intentional. If you try to pretend it isn’t swagged, it will look worse. So embrace the swag. Do a contrasting colour or make it look industrial.
Here are a few examples of what you can do if you are faced with this dilemma.
And another option is to simply add more. No swagging needed, but symmetry is in order.
If you don’t have space for a proper home office, or perch for your computer, why not consider your hall. Even if you only have a foot or two, you can tuck in a table that acts as a desk when you need. Hopefully you won’t be working at your desk when guests are over, so the chair can simply be put aside when not in use and the flow of the hall remains.
Check out these pretty awesome examples.
