My friend Michaela is in the process of updating her home that she moved into a few years ago. She knew that the master bedroom, affectionately referred to as “the Batcave”, was top priority on her to do list. Having been inspired by my green and black posts, she began to gain a vision for her room. Michaela is friends with a talented designer, Inbar Kerper-Saranovitz from Inbar Designs, who was offering a “Design on a Dime” class. Michaela along with three other class participants made over each other’s spaces! I know! What a fun and fantastic idea. I would love to participate in a class like this.
The bed was moved in front of the window to give the room better feng shui. (Tip: Whether you believe in the principles of feng shui or not, moving your furniture in a way that does not block paths makes a huge difference. If you walk through any door into a room and nearly bump into a piece of furniture, it’s time to try switching things around. Okay, back to the makeover.) The oppressively dark walls were given a fresh look with Dill Pickle by Benjamin Moore. The black medallion decals are from World Market and add a nice touch of drama. Notice the curtains behind the bed and below are zebra print! What a great way to add some whimsy to your bedroom in a non-overstated and quiet manner. I love it!
But hands down, what I love the most about this room is this gorgeous chandelier. Michaela found this beauty at an antique consignment store and claims that it cost just a tad more than a light fixture she was considering from Lowes. I think it really makes the room and adds such an aire of elegance. I’m admittedly jealous. I want one.
Okay, let’s ogle it one more time. Please be sure to give my friend some comment love here. She’s one of my most faithful readers…not to mention faithful friends! Love you girl. You did a great job!
