eDesign for Abby - Bedroom Makeover

Abby's bedroom is super large and the furniture is magnificent, both in style and size. The goal for her room is to add a bit of softness while highlighting the formal style of the existing bedroom set.

In order to soften the color palette the walls will be painted a soft cream while the windows will be trimmed with formal white draperies. Accenting the space will be a few glam character pieces and a hint of pale seashell pink.

Check out the before pictures:


And here is the Good + Glam eDesign plan:

Looking forward to Abby's eDesign after pics! I will keep you posted!

Amazing After Pics! Luanne's Bedroom Makeover

WOW! Take a look at these amazing after pics. After receiving the Good and Glam eDesign, Luanne began transforming her bedroom into a tropical and serene get-away. In order to get the most bang for her buck, Luanne kept her existing bedroom furniture and she re-painted it white. I think this was a great descision, I love to save a buck or two and you can't look past the timeless quality of good furniture. The result is a stunning transformation.



You can check out the complete eDesign plan, including the before pics, mood board and floor plan here.

I found this Dresser/Changing Table to be a great inspiration piece. It is from MasonGray, who was featured in most recent issue of Lonny Magazine. The list price ranges from $1,950 - $2,000, depending on the finish. I just love the "hot lips" lacquered drawers.

eDesign for Luanne

Luanne's bedroom is spacious and bright, but needed some updating. She came to Good + Glam for design help.
Luanne wanted to redesign her bedroom into a tropical oasis however, one major stipulation was that the furniture must stay. I think this is a good thing, because the existing bedroom set has great style, it just needed some updating.

Here are the before pictures of Luanne's bedroom.

The design plan is to paint the bedroom set white, the walls turquoise and maintain the natural wood trim color. I created a mood board for Luanne that incorporates tropical style with subtle hints of sparkle.

Luanne is in the process of incorporating the plan and has the furniture and wall painting complete. She is on to the next step and I am looking forward to seeing her after pics. Stay tuned!
