Giveaway and Reveal! My Master Bedroom Makeover with Sherwin-Williams





At the end of this post, please leave a comment for a chance to win a $50 Sherwin-Williams gift card.

Remember the other day I shared my design plan for my master bedroom makeover with Sherwin-Williams?  If you missed it, I coined the term "liveable luxury" for this project because it describes exactly what I've always wanted our master bedroom to convey.  A little bit of luxury yet casual, comfortable and inviting at the same time.   To achieve this I laid out a plan that included luxurious bedding, new art/lighting/accessories, some of my favorite personal treasures and a dramatic ceiling treatment.  

Well guess what?  The room is done and I can't wait to share it with you today. 


(Before)

  I kept a lot of my existing design elements in place, yet  my room has a totally new feel.  The custom ceiling treatment is by far the most dramatic change in the space.  You can see in the before photo above that our room originally had a large white tray ceiling.   

  To draw more attention to this great architectural feature, I decided to have crown molding installed around the perimeter of the tray at the base and around the top.  
  I chose extra thick moldings to provide that hint of luxury I desired.  




(During)


Once the moldings were in place it was time for paint.  You may remember in my first post how I was playing around with the Color Visualizer from Sherwin-Williams to help me decide on the new color.  This is just one of the three helpful color selection tools available from Sherwin-Williams.  Using the Color Visualizer, I was able to upload photos of my bedroom and paint them with the virtual paintbrush.  After experimenting with a few different color combinations and comparing the design board I created to the color visualizer mock ups, the colors I chose were: SW 7046 Anonymous, SW 7652 Mineral Deposit and SW 7002 Downy.
Here is a look at the design board I created for this project featuring these three colors...

(Product sources listed at the bottom of this post)



I chose SW 7002 Downy for the new moldings and SW 7046 Anonymous for the walls and the bottom part of the tray ceiling.   Lastly, I picked SW 7652 Mineral Deposit for the inside of the tray ceiling and to use around the room in decorative accents.  


 .  

Painting the ceiling a color made the room feel bigger and cozier at the same time.  Before, the cold, white ceiling brought the height of the room down visually.  Now the eye goes straight up to the highest point in the space.  The richness of SW 7046 Anonymous around the entire perimeter of the space feels like a big warm hug.  Not to mention, the high contrast between SW 7046 Anonymous and SW 7002 Downy really made the new moldings stand out. 




(Before)


(After)


A full post dedicated to the molding project is coming soon.
For now, let me show you around our new master bedroom...
(After)

Some of the first things I brought into our new space were some of my favorite photos of our three children.  To tie them into the new color scheme, I had them printed and in sepia tones, framed in antiqued gold frames and then I painted plain white mats with leftover ceiling paint.

  I purchased a pair of extra large, vintage inspired blue lotus flower prints to anchor the display. 



Adding hooks to the bottom of the shelf gives me a place to hang our family Christening gown.  It also gives us a place to hang our clothes at night for the next day, making our new space more "liveable".  Being surrounded by these special items everyday in my bedroom is my idea of "luxury".  







Our faux silk drapes create the illusion of luxury, but on a dime.   I made these from sateen king sized flat sheets.  We use our roman shades for privacy, therefore the drapes are there to soften the design.  They play very nicely with the new ceiling color. 








I added a little more of the gray/blue color on the other side of the room with accessories.   I painted a set of candlesticks I picked up at a consignment shop with SW 7652 Mineral Deposit using a dry brush technique.  A tutorial on this project is coming soon. 






 I've had these hanging candle sconces for a few years, but I have to say that they show up so much more against the new paint color than they did before. 







New lamps flanking the bed provide functional task lighting and also pull double duty as a major design element.  The contemporary shape helps to update the look of our traditional style furniture.  I think their extra large scale provides a bit of whimsy.





For the bed, I selected crisp white cotton sheets and a fluffy new gray and cream duvet.  I already had the blue coverlet and loved the way these colors look together. 








Keeping the space liveable meant having things we use daily easily accessible and out in the open.  To make our perfume/cologne collection look pretty, I put it on a gorgeous chain link metal tray and placed it on the dresser.  





Our bedroom design has come together in stages, over a period of years.  It's been a process over time starting with the addition of board and batten wainscoting (a DIY project), replacing the builder grade trim with extra thick pine boards, changing out the carpet for wood laminate floors and finally this addition of a custom ceiling treatment.  










The new ceiling treatment really finishes off the space.  Ceilings are a great opportunity for drama and sometimes they tend to be overlooked.  My bedroom was one of those instances.  It's feeling are no longer hurt thanks to Sherwin-Williams and Blogher.  This campaign gave me the opportunity to show how the addition of moldings and paint on the ceiling can have a big impact on your space.












I'd also like to give Sherwin-Williams a huge shout out for their Harmony paint line.  After using this paint, we were able to sleep in our room the very same night.  It actually helps reduce common indoor odors from your pets, cooking and daily life to help rooms stay fresher longer.  Harmony contains new technology that helps promote better indoor air quality by reducing VOC levels from potential sources like carpet, cabinets and fabrics.    
High Five Sherwin-Williams!

  61. We have lived with builder beige for 15 years before finally researching and deciding on Sherwin Williams paint. For the past 4 years we have been painting and updating rooms in the house, we have one room downstairs yet to do. It use to be our son's small bedroom, sewing room, then a computer room/nursery for visiting grandbabies. My treadmill is now out of the basement and in this room, I would love to paint this room and make it more inviting to inspire me to get walking on that treadmill more often.
