Inspired Style: Surprise Bedroom Makeover for retired Army Veteran & Purple Heart recipient-turned-first-responder.
In our newest episode of Moving with the Military we got a chance to serve a retired Purple Heart recipient-turned-first-responder with a dream bedroom makeover. This is one of our favorite makeovers yet! We had a beautiful blank canvas to make their bedroom a tranquil place to relax and enjoy the comforts of home for years to come.
Everybody deserves a bedroom that feels like a refuge. Especially Jose and Sarah - a couple who has spent the last 2 decades serving others first. With the help of Caliber Home Loans, we jumped at the chance to serve this family, and fill their room with colors and textures that radiate calm and peace.
Jose and Sarah loved the texture and design features of their new room and I am thrilled to share how you can take inspiration from this room to create the look on your own.
A Bright Blank Canvas Ready for a Fresh Design
When Jose retired from the army, they moved into their forever home, and they love it. But they never got around to designing that perfect bedroom oasis of their dreams. That left our Moving with the Military team with a bright, beautiful blank canvas to let our creative juices flow, and design the room they deserve.
We gave them a gorgeous vivid blue bed frame from Wayfair as the focal point, and played with blues and greens with a pop of coral throughout the room. We found a modern, white, textured nightstand with gold frame that added dimension to the room. We put other modern gold touches in the small details, and played up fun textures and patterns to create a space they would love to come home to. One of my favorite additions was the animal print lamp base that added the right amount of character to the space.
Bringing together Individual His and Hers Design
I loved the reading nook 'she-space' we created for Sarah to relax in the warm sunshine, and take in the calm and comfy vibes. Because it's such a bright room, we got to play a lot with color and texture and design, and still have a soft, airy feel. From the softly patterned rug, to the throw pillows and ottomans, to the curtain ties, we created an eye-catching space. We added faux plants throughout that give that vibe we want, with zero maintenance.
Military families have to keep weight allowances in mind when picking out their pieces, but because Jose is retired, he can have some heavy pieces that really make a statement. One of my all time favorite pieces is this mid-century modern 6 drawer double dresser from Wayfair. It came in a rich dark wood lending a little bit of a masculine touch to the room.
How to Create This Look at Home:
For this family, we embraced a mid-century modern look and added texture pattern and color that spoke to this family’s style. You can start with our Wayfair pieces and a monochromatic palette. Then pull in your favorite colors, and experiment with textures to add a pop of personality and style to your space.
We’d love to know if this space inspires you as much as it did us when we designed it. Make sure you like and follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Make sure to comment on our post to ask questions and share your design ideas, and stay tuned for our next episode of Moving with the Military.
