A client who wanted to move in an appartement that she bought a few years ago, visited me for getting advice how to redecorate the “olf-fashioned” bedroom that the former owners left her!

And yes indeed the room looked terrible old-fashioned as you can see on the before-pictures here below!

So we started to draw a perspective of the room and my client was so excited about it and decided to do the make over as we had proposed!

The perspective drawing of the bedroom.

Before : The wall where the bedhead will be.

Before : The entrance side to the bedroom.

Before : The wall with the former dressing wardrobe.
Looked awful, isn’t it?!

So we started with an oak parquet floor.

For the bedhead we choosed another fabric.

My client wanted to use creamy colours to bring in some light into the room.

After : By hanging the mirror on the bedwall , the room seems to look bigger .

After : On this side (entrance side) we brought in wall paneling.
Because our client needs her dressing to bring in into the bedroom, a closet is incorporated in this paneling. And to gain place we added a sliding door as entrance door.

After : The wardrobe wall.
In the middle, above the drawers, is put the TV screen , hidden behind doors.


On the woodpaneling and on the wardrobe we applied the “Peinture de Paris” painting technique. It is a technique where is used a wax as finishing coat.

I know it’s hard to see on those pictures but it gives the paint a beautiful look.

On the picture here below ( from another work ), maybe you can see the wax coat a little bit better.

I hope you enjoyed this make over!
