When Blayne came to us a month ago for an elegant and subtly exotic bedroom makeover with a hint of Moroccan flair, we had no idea she’d get everything together so quickly! Here’s her letter:
Well, my room is done and it looks amazing! Even better than I expected. I followed your design plan pretty much to a T (although I found similar chocolate curtains at JC Penney for half the price and I used a slightly different medium brown color behind the bed on the accent wall). Half of the pictures on the walls are actually the same art I had in the room before, I just cut them down and put them in new frames. I love your idea of using the 8 frames on the facing walls and I was able to put a lot of different pictures in them but they still have a cohesive look because they’re all in the same frame. My husband and I are both just thrilled with how it came out! So are you two ready to swankify my living room and kitchen next? Thank you so much for your help! – Blayne
Here’s the split personality before:

And of course the gorgeous and inviting after pics:
Lovely, no? We would totally stay at Casa Blayne, and we’re so happy she sent us such a fast and fabulous update. What do you guys think?
Update: We sadly can no longer find the time to take on client commissioned mood boards (we now whip up general inspiration boards instead) but if we ever reinstate them we’ll make a big announcement!
That looks absolutely amazing!!!
I completely agree with Amanda. I am so impressed with how this space came together. It looks beautiful!
That looks so great! I love the bedspread.
I would love to know what the brown color is on the accent wall, it’s just what I am looking for for my dining room.
WOW — it looks fantastic. Great job!
Wow! I love that even though the accent wall is darker than the orginal color the room looks soo much lighter. The lamps are FABULOUS! I love the whole thing more than I could ever have imagined.
Very nice!!! I’m just hoping they kept their kitty cat. :-)
This is fabulous! I think this is my favorite of all the ones you’ve done!
i love how she stuck with your board. its fun to see your ideas come to life! great job to all!
Great Job! Love the color she chose for the accent wall and how all the other colors pop! Also great job on the wall art. Lovely!
Wow – it’s awesome!! What an amazing “after.” It all came together beautifully.
Wow, that looks SO good. The bedding, drapes, lamps, and painting the wall made such a difference. Great job, Blayne!
This bedroom makeover is amazing. I loved it so much I featured it in my blog. Great job!!
I really like the changes! Great work!
I also am loving the bedspread – I have been stalling about adding bedding to my bridal registry waiting for stores to come out with their more spring-ish colors, and now I’m definitely considering going with this one instead!
Blayne, look at you getting down to design business! Your room looks great! Thank you SO much for sending in the after pictures…I love seeing the results of Sherry and John’s mood boards.
Absolutely love it! Blayne did a great job of putting it all together. I’m completely inspired and motivated to have John and Sherry create a room for me. Thanks for the “after” picture! So fun to see how the mood board translates into reality.
WOW! I love the after, of course!
I love the monogram above the bed! Stunning!
I want one!
Thanks for all the great comments! The color is Sherwin Williams Hopsack. We did keep the kitties! Especially since now we have the lighter bedspread and their hair doesn’t show up as much! You are right about the room being lighter, I did not even realize how dark it was until it was done.
Late response … but you’re makeover is gorgeous. I love it!
Hi! The mood board looks fantastic. Unfortunately I can’t see the other photos (the before’s and after’s). Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know. Have a good one! :)
Thanks for the heads up Rose! There must have been a glitch in the matrix, but we seem to have solved it. Hopefully those pictures are back up for you to enjoy!
Wow it looks great. Will you please share where you got your curtains from? and in what shade? I absolutely love them. They would look great in my bedroom.
Just follow the link in this post back to her mood board for that info. Hope it helps!
I just found this site by accident. Wow..so much info..will take some time to go through. I have the ugliest bathroom in the state (just bought house) and sure could use some suggestions. What should I do next?
#2: When you hang curtains over the inside-mount white wooden blinds, do I remove the ugly clip-on valance?
love this website!
We usually remove the valance when we hang curtains, and as for the bathroom, maybe paint first and then pick a window treatment, then bring in art and accessories? Good luck!
