This bedroom was pretty bland, with almost no decor or personality. The bones, however, are promising: Lots of windows and hardwood floors point toward good things to come.

Bedroom Makeover — Before and After
Style by Emily Henderson

Before

This poor bedroom lacks color, texture, and visual interest. Plus, the open bookshelves are unkempt and the clutter in the corner is pretty chaotic.

The power of wallpaper is undeniable. Here, a textured cream-and-gold pattern upgrades drab walls while still maintaining a neutral and sophisticated color palette. The moss green and coral hues give the space an upbeat feel with a hint of retro flair.

This bedroom feels devoid of personality and life. Simplicity can be awesome and make a major impact, but not if the result is lifeless. Needless to say, this room was calling for a dramatic makeover.

Walls in screaming shades of burgundy, cobalt, and mustard can be pretty hard to work with, especially for a Scandinavian style aficionado.

Teetering piles of clothing and papers are never chic. Meanwhile, bare walls make the room seem forgotten and the dark paint makes it feel lifeless and drab.
