With every new home, no matter how perfect it is, there’s always something you’re going to want to change. Whether it’s the tile work in the bathroom, the color of the dining room walls, or the landscaping around the backyard, it’s nearly impossible to find a home that checks off every item on your wish list upon initial purchase.
In the first part of our four-part series on this La Canada home, we’re showing you room by room exactly how we transformed this California ranch.
Let’s start with the master bedroom. Although large and full of light, the current design didn’t feel quite right. The room had ample storage and structurally was perfect, but the room needed a refresh.
The new owners were going for a classic yet modern feel. In a master bedroom, they wanted a more tranquil environment — something contemporary, yet comfortable and inviting.
One common misconception with interior design changes as drastic as these is that you have to change every detail in the room, but in this case, we started with what we already had.
Instead of getting rid of the existing furniture, we took the present dresser and gave it a mini-makeover with new knobs. It’s incredible how big of an impact a small upgrade to hardware can make.
On the walls, we swapped the bright pink paint for a grasscloth wallpaper (with a hint of sheen) for texture. It not only brought elegance into the room, but also an added touch of the comfort you only find at home.
Of course, my favorite detail in the entire room might be one most don’t notice on first glance. If you look closely at the roman shades, you’ll notice the exquisite trim detail. For me, this was the finishing touch on a now perfect room!
