Bedroom Ideas for Big Rooms

Bedroom Ideas For Big Rooms ~

Bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. Laura hasn't decorated her bedroom for decades, and it shows. This huge, neglected space has potential but needs help.

After: Timeless and Tasteful

Candice creates a floor plan that includes a sitting area and desk. She makes the fireplace a focal point, adding custom cabinetry. Wheat-colored carpet throughout, accent rugs and a mix of soothing fabrics help create a calm, warm space. Trimwork on the vaulted ceiling offers drama; a chandelier adds luxury and romance. This homeowner is thrilled. "This is the most beautiful room I've ever been in, " she says.

Before: Floral Overload

Poppy has a massive master bedroom, but when pink is the predominant color, ample square footage goes by the wayside. She desperately wants a Caribbean-inspired retreat that reminds her of the tropical place she used to call home.

After: Caribbean Nights

Candice creates a luxury spa feel by removing a wall between the bedroom and bathroom and opting for motorized draperies, allowing an open and airy feel. The addition of a high-end bathtub makes the room feel like an exclusive spa. The result is exactly what the homeowner wanted and more, and it's Candice's all-time favorite bedroom makeover.

This uninspired bedroom/home office belongs to Earl, a high-school teacher who wants a stylish, eco-friendly space that he'll be proud to show to guests.

After: Eco-Friendly Cool

Candice chooses a low-VOC paint in a warm blue color, a mix of organic fabrics and recyclable carpet tiles as some of the environmentally friendly elements in this bedroom. "Now it's easy on the eyes and easy on the Earth, " she says. And the homeowner happily agrees.

Before: Furniture Challenged

This is the bedroom of two busy parents; they are finally ready to devote time and energy to turning this space into a true adult sanctuary. Good thing they have Candice to help them.

After: Third-Floor Luxury

This bedroom is all about the shimmer: Candice chooses fabrics that pick up light and shine. A custom headboard features chenille fabric with a metallic thread. Mirrors, brought in to bounce the room's light, are etched to coordinate with the bed's luxurious damask bedding. Built-in cabinetry adds storage.

After: Sleek and Chic Suite

Candice creates an adult sanctuary. The first thing to go: the wallpaper. She replaces it with neutral paint and rich, shimmery draperies. A sitting area highlights the bay window and invites, among other things, breakfast in the bedroom.

Before: A Clean Slate

Veronique likes the color beige, and it shows in her cavernous, neutral bedroom. She dreams of a fireplace and a bedroom that reminds her of home.

After: French-Inspired Master

Candice, inspired by her client's French heritage, creates a bedroom that could have been plucked from Europe. Hand-carved wood floors, engineered limestone, a plethora of moldings and a fireplace reminiscent of a French chateau help create the Old World look. Panels featuring an original painting of one of Veronique's favorite French sites disguise the television.

After: Organic and Bold

Candice brings one of her favorite color palettes into this space: fabrics and bedding in "spicy" tones. She creates a feature wall/headboard with prefinished flooring, adds a new platform bed and updates mirrored closet doors with privacy film. Candice dubs the design "kid-free and parent perfect." I think the homeowners will agree.

Before: Space Overload

This bedroom belongs to a couple who spent many years living in a small Japanese apartment. Since coming to the States and upsizing, they've not been able to furnish and design their dream bedroom. That's where Candice comes in.
