Woohoo! It’s my absolute delight and pleasure to introduce you to what has been dubbed, The Queen’s Quarters.
This bedroom makeover reveal has been a long time coming, and well worth the wait. Let’s get into it!
Before I began this project, I asked myself a few simple questions:
“How do I want to feel when I enter this room?”
“How do I want to feel when my eyes open in the morning?”
“How do I want to feel when I lay my head down at night?”
I closed my eyes…
and instantly saw a picture of my favorite spa.
Then, suddenly this feeling of relief mixed with peace came over me.
So, after clarifying the feeling, it was time to confirm the color theme.
Spas are known for white, gray, beige and more neutral palettes. This is great for the vast majority or when you’re visiting temporarily. Not so great for a bedroom where you’ll spend hours in there and you want it with your personality and style in mind.
Here was my original concept board:
If you’ve ever spent two seconds in my presence, you know that I love color, especially the color pink.
From this before picture, you can see that hot-Barbie-pepto-bismol pink was the vibe.
I have loved all shades of pink since I was a little girl. Steadfast in my desire for a spa-like ambience, I decided that it was time to upgrade to a shade of pink that was more fitting for my desire for peace.
I won’t go into it here, but there are colors that are more likely to amp you up than calm you down. Hot, and bright colors in bedrooms aren’t usually ideal. Because they counteract the purpose of a bedroom, which is for sleep, and rest.
And without further ado, the after, lovingly dubbed, The Queen’s Quarters.
I mean. Can we say stunning?! I gasp with breathtaking gratitude still.
I’m very much in awe of the gift that God’s given me to create something beautiful in my mind and see it come to life exquisitely.
For your viewing and eye candy pleasure, here’s a couple more before & after photographs.
Not that you care, and I feel compelled to share— I don’t walk on my white carpet (or any of the carpet in my home) with shoes on. The shoes hadn’t been worn yet when this photo was taken. No food, or drinks are allowed in the

Do you ever wonder why I don’t DIY? It’s in part because of these floating shelves (above). My sister and I installed them, and as you can see they’re leaning over a bit.
Guess how many hours it took us to install after several attempts? 6 hours. Not even joking. It only took one time to realize installation isn’t my ministry.
Yes, as an interior designer I create the vision. That’s my gift and skill set. The contractor, on the other hand, does the installation. And depending on the kind of installation, there are different contractors for different skills (i.e. carpenters, painters, electricians, plumbers, etc.).
