Before&After: George Banks Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is the only room we really redecorated from scratch. This was our old master situation in Chicago, which I loved, but I definitely wanted a change for this house. First of all, this master is like almost thricely the size of the Chicago room. Also, the new owners of Chicago wanted the canopy, and I was able to sell the old headboard to a client. Time for a fresh start!

As I mentioned yesterday, this space was previously a fourth bedroom cut off from the rest of the house accessed either by walking through the master bedroom, or from a staircase in the kitchen. We took out the staircase and made it into my office downstairs, and into Pete’s bathroom and closet upstairs. We moved the wall that separated the room from the old master back 5 feet extending the existing closet and bathroom, which became mine!

A visual would probably be helpful.

Well…That’s all folks! I will eventually get my act together on some of the outdoor changes, but I need a bit of a break from all this oversharing! Thanks so much for all of your sweet comments, if you have any questions on our bedroom leave them here and I will try to answer them as best I can!

    We are remodeling our bath and was wondering where you bought the window type shower frame. This is SO our decor style. Looking forward to hearing from you.
