Farmhouse Fabulous – Part II

Redesigning a Primary Bedroom

If you read Part I of this no demo renovation (click here if you missed it), you’ll remember that our client Teri was looking to remodel her home in Elmhurst into something more sophisticated and edgy. After TKS designer, Stephanie Cole, finished transforming the first floor, Teri asked her to carry their new style into the primary bedroom.

Similar to the rest of the house, the design of this space paid homage to the modern farmhouse aesthetic. The room has great architectural details such as a layered crown, tall base moldings, and a focal wall adorned in a Shaker-style panel. Since there was no construction involved in this portion of the project, we focused on palette and texture for a true transformation.

Textures Are Important in Bedroom Design

The bedroom was designed to feel like a respite at the end of the day. We updated and enhanced the homeowners’ space by integrating a serene color scheme and capitalizing on rich textures that elicit a sense of comfort and relaxation. We set the mood by painting the walls in Sherwin Williams Argos. The feature wall was intensified with a slightly darker shade of gray, Sherwin Williams Cityscape.

The homeowners wanted to keep their bed and nightstands, so we worked to accentuate these foundational pieces. Blending layers of satin and velvet, we replaced the existing bedding with a lush bedspread in a medium gray. The strong blue undertones evoke a sense of tranquility and peace.

The solid-toned bedding and drapery were thoughtfully paired with the subtle patterns and subdued hues reflected in the new rug and abstract artwork.

Add Statement Lighting to Your Bedroom

New lighting was selected that anchored the space. A large drum pendant hangs from the center of the room while two sconces in matte black flank the bed. This straightforward transformation shows that with a calming palette, sumptuous fabrics and attention to form and pattern, a true nighttime sanctum can be achieved without a major overhaul.
