Hollywood Regency Bedroom Reveal

I'm finally finished with my bedroom redo.  I was going for a Hollywood Regency look.  I'm not sure if I followed all the "Rules"of Hollywood Regency, but..... 

......I feel mighty glamorous lounging in my new bedroom!

Here's the before and after picture.  By putting the bed against the wall with the windows, the room seemed instantly bigger...Go figure!

I wanted to use wallpaper behind the bed....But, Holy cow have you priced wallpaper lately?  So, plan "B"...After painting all of the walls with Sherwin Williams Mountain Air paint

I found a much cheeper option to wallpaper...A stencil.  I was thrilled when I found this great Art Deco stencil from "Cutting Edge Stencil"

I really struggled to get good photos.  The room has very little natural light...Great for sleeping...Horrid for pictures!

Now I was on to the fun stuff..Decorating

I found the high chest of drawers at Vintage Living Market Place while on my East Coast of Florida road trip

I knew I wanted a starburst but, after no luck searching antique stores I found this one at Stein Mart.  I was thrilled to find this white lady bust at Ross for $9.99!

The little blue slipper chair was a yard sale find from many years ago.   It was $11.00 and the lady said her mother had brought it from France.  

I slip covered it for my living room and completely forgot what was underneath.... I was going to recover it for the bedroom and when I took the slipcover off....OMG...It was perfect!


The pole lamp in the corner was another Vintage Living Market Place find.  I couldn't resist since it came complete with some sparkly bling.

On the other wall is the broken china mosaic dress form I made....

.......I think it has found a perfect home

The throw on the end of the bed is from Ikea

The pillows are from Home goods

You can read about my lampshade hat box Here

I've had this dressing table for many years.  I finally got around to painting the jewelry chest

I'll do a blog post soon on the easy temporary padded headboard and the cheapest easiest way to make a drapery cornice board.

Well....I'm off.... I think I'll put on my silk pajamas, grab a martini and lounge in my bedroom!

Happy Creating

The hatbox lampshade is so great but when I priced the LED bulbs I almost fainted :))

Teresa said...

Don't you dare to spill that Martini!

Turned out awesome. I knew it would but you always take one a bit further. I love the color you chose and all those details. Hollywood owes you nothing, Carol.

You could turn those dreadful Game of Thrones "homes" into Disneyland with a swoop of your hand and endless gift.

Beautiful, Carol! You did a wonderful job and the transformation is amazing.

Little Miss Maggie said...

Ooh la la. I love your new style. Very glamorous.

Debbie said...

It's wonderful!! I didn't realize that I had missed this. I guess I was more distracted the past two days than I realized. It's all just perfect, and I love the stenciled walls even BETTER than I would have loved wallpaper. That big stencil thing is one of my favorite looks. The little chair is perfect. I love it when something like that works out.

And you are spot on that the mosaic dress form is perfect in there. It makes me very glad you didn't see it.

Two enthusiastic thumbs up for this one!

Unknown said...

Beautiful! You're very talented.

Debbiedoos said...

Stunning Carol! I saw it and clicked over from facebook a few days ago from my phone. I meant to come over via my computer to comment and forgot. It is gorgeous. You must sleep like an angel in there.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

The color is simply divine! And the stenciling is amazing! I love the little bit of sparkle and shine whenever you look around the room, especially in the pillows. And my favorite piece? The little mirrored table next to your bed! It is GORGEOUS! And of course your mosaic lady is perfect, too. Very nice! I love my 'romantic' bedroom but sometimes it's hard to me to get it just right. I tend to have too much of everything! lol Sweet hugs, Diane

SavannahGranny said...

Carol, This bedroom is amazing! You must feel like a glamorous starlet sleeping in there. I have missed out on some much here. Love the wall and stenciling and Oh My, I love the mosaic dress form. You certainly found perfection in this room. So glad I didn't miss this one.
Hugs, Ginger
