Takeover Makeover: Bedroom Reveal

Getting back into the swing of things with Takeover Makeover was just what I needed. If you missed the plans I shared on Tuesday you can head to this post. I was so happy to create a restful, beautiful space for a pair of cute newlyweds. Before we get into all of the photos I want to give a big thanks to Mohawk Home for sponsoring this makeover. It was such an honor to work with a great area rug company seeing as rugs are my favorite things to shop for and switch up. *this post contains affiliate links. You'll find all of the shopping sources at the bottom of the page.

After 2 days and lots of work, here's the bedroom now:



I shared the whole process in a video on IGTV which is live now but I added some trim and paint to create a feature wall behind their bed. Painted their dresser. Rearranged. Brought in art and decor and topped it off (figuratively) with a great, soft, taupey greige Heritage Hivju Trabal rug from Mohawk Home. Scroll below for other pretty Mohawk Home rugs:



It was a blank slate before. Nothing had been done yet so it was fun to be able to choose which direction to go in the room.

After:



I get asked all the time and the answer is always "yes", you can absolutely layer a rug on carpet. DO IT!  It adds so much dimension to a room and can totally change the look of a space. This is a king bed and an 8x10 rug. Just cheat the rug toward the foot of the bed and make sure there's an even amount on both sides.

We moved around furniture and I painted their dresser a soft sage color. I mixed it with left over paint but I'd try the Sherwin Williams color 'svelte sage' if you're wanting to match it.


The bed frame got a light coat of black stain and the center of the headboard got a coat of flat black paint.


I balanced the sw "ripe olive" wall and the black headboard with lots of light and bright details like the art and the bedding. I love how the lumbar pillow and tree stump water colors pull in the warmth of the rug.



It's such a change from a just a few days ago. The happy couple loves it and I'm so thankful they let me take over in there.What do you think?!
