This was my mantra for re-doing Shauna’s master bedroom. She approached me a few months ago with the project and [of course] I accepted. I pulled together a concept quickly, just because I know Shauna and her love for purple. And from there we started mentally building our project. It would be luxurious and glam, very femme and a tiny bit over the top.
These past couple weeks really saw the project take off. I had a few big projects that needed to be tackled.
First, the purple feature wall where the bed would sit. [Don’t tell Samantha Pynn … apparently she HATES feature walls. I admitted I had one in my house to her. In PERSON.]
We went with Behr’s Two-In-One Paint/Primer in Berry Wine
Second, the headboard. It was already upholstered in a nice green fabric. But, going with our theme, we wanted to amp it up a bit. I scoured fabric sites and ordered samples and we finally settled on Traditions Black and White from Tonic Living.
We also recovered her make-up table stool with the Traditions fabric.
Shauna bought a dresser off Used Regina, and we painted it black and added shiny new hardware.
This home was a new build … it’s just over a year old. All of the finishings are really nice. It was just kind of … dull. To be fair, these pictures were taken after things had been partially dismantled. Shauna is not a messy person at all! We were just about to start painting when I remembered “I should really take before’s on this…” And they were taken with my Blackberry. Quality.

Ready? I’m so happy with the results. And Shauna was speechless. I’ve never seen that happen before …
