Before and After – Bedroom

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashley Hawthorne @ 3:10 pm

I’m not 100% finished renovating and decorating the bedroom, but its close enough for some before/after shots!  It was very white and had fantabulous blue mini-blinds before.  I went back and forth searching for what style I wanted in there, but honestly, I just tried so hard and could NOT make it what I wanted.  I realized that it was because what i thought I “wanted” was just not ash and kyle.  I started out wanting very serene and clean and calm with all neutrals basically, and a spa-like vibe.  I am just not that way.  I want to be sometimes, but really, I am colorful and splashy and saturated!  So, thats what we have!  Lots of colors, a dark paint on the walls, which is what i really did want all along, and a mix of contemporary and traditional.  Most of our house is very light and bright and open, but i wanted the bedroom to be much darker- hence the chocolate walls.  The color, by the way, is “Bear Creek” and I forget the manufacturer but i’ll check it.  It reminds me of the western store/steak house in Greensburg, but much prettier i hope 🙂

Try and remember that when thinking about what you want your home to be… you may find all kinds of inspirational images in magazines and online, but the most important thing- BY FAR is to make your space a reflection of who you and your family are.  So, here you go:



  1. This definitely looks like you two, and it looks comfy… Just what a bedroom should be!

  3. So that is why you recommended that color for our walls when we built this house. You secretly wanted it in your own! Of course our accents do not make our’s look near as nice as yours…Nice looking room.
