The Milton: Bedroom Reveal Part I

Furnishing this home in Milton, Georgia has been different than most of our design work. Both due to the scope of the project and the devastating delays to the supply chain from COVID-19 shutdowns and labor shortages, we are installing in stages. Not all rooms are complete, but we're excited to share a few of the bedrooms and how beautifully they've come together.


Bedroom 1:

This room was a nice blank slate. We started with a fresh coat of paint and swapped the woven shades and non- functional drapes for a new set of custom blackout draperies that feature a subtle pattern for a little more interest and fullness. Removing the woven shades also allowed us to show off the full height of the beautiful windows.


Before:

We paired a custom bed with matte-black french inspired nightstands. The bed is upholstered in luxurious Mélange Wool Velvet and we love how the white oak base transitions to the floor. A vintage rug and linen bedding finishes off the space.


Bedroom II:


In this bedroom, we chose to remove the distressed wood accent wall in favor of a cleaner tongue and groove detail painted the same color as the wall. Again, we removed the existing window treatments and installed functional blackout draperies in another subtle linen print. We also swapped out the pendants to accommodate a king size bed and to incorporate some warm brass tones.

Bedroom III:

A custom, white oak bed was upholstered in a handcrafted embroidered stripe print. We love the tonal variation and choose to keep the bedding really simple with solid textiles and a single lumbar that let the bed be the star.


Before:

In addition to painting and replacing the window treatments, we removed the navy padding in the reading nook.


In the nook, we installed a custom french mattress in a natural linen and layered lots of pillows for color and texture (and comfort!). Our favorite detail has to be replacing the recessed light with a flush mount fixture. The simple switch instantly makes the spot feel more charming.
