1 Day Bedroom Makeover


I really enjoyed this month's House Beautiful but my absolute favorite part was the bedroom makeover done by decorator Amanda Nisbet - It gave you minute by minute of how she took the most boring bedroom on the planet and made it an event all in one day. Thank you for posting these shots My Notting Hill I wish I could find the before or that I had a scanner. It really is worth picking up an issue. 


The headboard ROCKS!  And a single patterned pillow.



Never thought to put a desk in front of an ugly radiator - fantastic and she had a good tip about not matching a mirror to the console.  The cool plant in the corner makes the room - OH how I wish you could see the before!

  3. It was a great issue. Sometimes if I need an image that I can't find online, I'll take a photo (without flash) and post it that way!

  4. I love everything Amanda does and this room was no different!

    It is stunning. The before is so drab. Let me know if you need the before I have a scanner and I can sent it to you.

  10. I was very impressed with this make over as well. The room actually looks bigger when she's done.

  11. I was intrigued to see the "before", but as I'm viewing your post 2 years later, I didn't have access to the House Beautiful issue. With a little internet searching, I found the full photo coverage at http://amandanisbetdesign.com/press/ (click on the House Beautiful issue cover that looks like a purple room w/ the light blue "House Beautiful" and red "Is small the new BIG?").
    You can view all of these photos
