Two Design Board Options for our Room Makeover Winner!

June 7, 2021

bedroom makeover

For a long time, I have wanted to start designing for people and families outside of our own home, but it just hasn’t been the right season. Recently we had the opportunity to offer a complete room makeover to a reader, and it’s something I have been really looking forward to! The makeover includes all of the furniture from Article, as well as the design plans and install from us. Today I am sharing a peek at the mood boards I shared with the winner, as well as the incredible story behind her family.

Maria’s Family
When it was time to select a winner, we drew two names at random from both IG entries and email entries. The winner we chose let us know she actually entered her sister who had been going through a rough year. We learned recently (shared with permission) that our giveaway winner Maria has a 9 yr old son who has been going through treatment for brain cancer. Maria and her husband have been tag teaming this year taking him to treatments in between taking care of their other children and working from home. Their own bedroom has become a landing place for her husband’s work from home office as well as easy access care for their son. Since chatting with Maria, I am blown away by her joy and positive heart. I feel so honored that we get to work with her.

Design Goals for the Bedroom
The goal we have for this room makeover is to turn Maria and her husband’s bedroom into a restful retreat with functional areas for work and lounging.

They have pieced together furniture over the years, and some of the pieces were meant to just be holdover options including the table that is currently being used as a pseudo desk. Before creating these design board options, I asked Maria for image examples of spaces she was really drawn to. This helped me narrow down color palettes and overall style and feel of the room.

We have some ideas, but this is one element I am keeping a surprise for them. Gabe will be doing the painting and furniture install, and my rapidly enlarging self can at least help with the styling!

We are tackling this before the new baby comes, and we can’t wait to get started! Will be sharing the whole makeover over on instagram, with the full reveal back here on the blog. What do you think? Which layout would you choose?

A big thank you to Article for providing the furniture for this special project!

    Looks great! I think Id go with number 1 but all matching wood furniture. Love that chair!

  • I love #1 primarily because of the rug. If the husband doesn’t object to the pink in the rug, (good for him)and I say go for it. That rug adds vibrancy and brightness. I love your big hearts, capable decisions and hands!!!

  • Ashley Smith

    How beautiful 😭! I just love that you guys are doing this. Number 2 is my favorite but both are wonderful. Praying for this sweet family!

  • Shevaun

    My favorite is #1. I just got a good feeling from it and love the chair and rug. What a special treat this is for the family!

  • Great work. This is one of the best room makeovers I have seen. All options are amazing, but #1 is particularly good. Your reader is lucky to get such work done.

    I appreciate the efforts you put into this work. Please keep sharing such amazing experiences.

  • Where are those framed paintings from?? Can you share a source?!
