One Room Challenge -- Week #6, master bedroom reveal


Reveal day! 

 I'm so glad you're here!  If this is your first time visiting Abby Manchesky Interiors, welcome.  I've been working with my clients for the past six weeks transforming their master bedroom and today I'm sharing the final look.   If you missed any of the previous five weeks, feel free to click through!

WEEK ONE // WEEK TWO // WEEK THREE // WEEK FOUR // WEEK FIVE

What an exciting time for us design lovers.  There is so much talent in this round that I don't know how I could ever pick a favorite!  We owe a huge thank you to Miss Linda from Calling it Home.  She works tirelessly behind the scenes putting the One Room Challenge together.  
Thank you, Linda!  Without you these rooms might never get finished. ;-)

(All after photos by Ashley Avila Photography)

What to know before you read further:

*No one wins an award in this challenge.* 
 I participate because Linda asked and I love it.  Crazy, right? You should have seen my client's face when I broke the news to him that there are no judges and no prizes.  We simply share the room and that's it.  Ha!  But this is a common question so let's just get that out of the way.

*Sponsors make a huge difference.
I will be writing a post sharing ALL of the sources for this room, but there were a handful of sponsors that made this bedroom possible.  Please give them some love for their help!
Minted // Lamps Plus // Wayfair // Drawn // 6 Wilson // 
Lost & Found // Keaton and Co // Jana Bek // Simple Redesign

*Does the One Room Challenge give you a budget?* 
 No, you could spend a million dollars on your room if you have it.  In my case, my clients gave me a specific budget (not a million dollars) to work with, the sponsors help tremendously, and then I pitched in a little for finishing touches I thought were important for photos but optional for my clients to keep.

It's not often that I have the opportunity to design a room down to styling every surface.  This has been a treat.  My clients were fantastic.  Like a dream!  I will write more about the behind the scenes of this ORC soon, but for today, let's be honest...I know you're just here for the photos!

Here are the before pictures my clients were generous to share with us!  We had already worked together on the downstairs of their home and now it was time to bring their master bedroom up to speed.  They are a super stylish and fun couple with school age children and full-time jobs.  This bedroom didn't reflect their style.  When asked how they wanted the room to feel they said,
"We'd like a room that feels relaxing, calm, comfortable and sophisticated."  
I knew they were big fans of neutrals and she asked me to include pale pink in the room.  It all started when I fell hard for this Winter Crane fabric by Dwell Studio for Robert Allen...
The rest of the room was built from there.
You may read my interviews with my clients in past ORC weeks.

I'm thankful Carrie was willing to share the photographs she took of this room before she ever knew she'd be part of the One Room Challenge!  It's not easy letting the world see your home. Thanks Carrie!

Let's get started!


























  

His tall dresser was where I was able to include their wedding invitation and a photo they love from their honeymoon.


  
You may not notice the personal moments in this room, but butterflies remind Carrie of her mother, and it was important for me to include some type of butterfly art in the room.

*Lee Woodard rocker available at Lost & Found*


Carrie found this pineapple and pink vase at her parents home the day before our photo shoot.  I wanted it to be in a place where she would see it often, and therefore, opposite the bed.




The beautiful photos were all taken by the talented  Ashley Avila.  She was wonderful to work with and is always very patient with me while we make adjustments.  Thank you Ashley!  

Friday I'll be sharing the truth behind the One Room Challenge, along with all of the sources for this room.  I'll be responding to every comment below, so feel free to ask questions if you have them.  I would love to hear what you think!

Carrie gave me the biggest compliment Monday and I don't think she even realized how much it meant to me.  She mentioned that she actually retreated to their master bedroom with a beverage & a book, because she loved her room.  In the past, she had always steered clear from their master bedroom. But for the first time she actually wanted to spend time in the space.  Music to my ears.  

GOOD DESIGN CAN CHANGE HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE.  
That might sound dramatic, but it's true.

Thank you to my wonderful, generous, and trusting clients for allowing me in your home. I appreciate the freedom you gave me to create a room that I hope reflects
 the best version of your style. xx 

Whether you're near or far, I would love to work with you to create a home you love.  Email me at abbyminteriorsinfo@gmail.com for more information on my local & e-design services.

  42. Holy transformation! Abby, this room is seriously so gorgeous and sophisticated but warm and personal - you totally nailed your vision. I think my favorite part is the gallery wall with the TV and the table below…this is the first gallery wall I have seen in a while that I LOVE - so pretty. I also love the scone + lamp situation on the dresser - such a cool balance! Congrats and cheers to a beautiful job well done!

    ReplyDelete
  50. There are so many things I love, but I think the way you put the dresser wall together, with the sconce on one side and the lamp on the other, is just sooooo fantastic. It's unexpected and takes talent to pull off. Of course, the pillows are awesome ;-) but really, the room is just gorgeous. Love the mirror, bed throw and two chairs, too. Bravo!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow! This blew me away, what a transformation!! The bed is my favorite...those pillows!!! I also love Jana Bek's Brushstroke lamp here, it is perfect!

  74. Hi Abby! LOVE what you did with this room! Just curious if you're still planning on sharing a source post, because I am looking for bedside tables exactly like what you used in this room! Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Beautiful room. The chandelier - OMG! Love the beautiful accessories and placement in the room. Would have re-framed the art above the bed to give more dimension to it and balance the entire wall. Also, would have used taller bedside lamps and flanked the desk with an ottoman on each side to balance the gallery wall. Good job!!!!!
