A bedroom set in Chivalry.

Hello and Happy Friday! Recently I was asked to custom restyle a bedroom set for a sweet girl who was lucky enough to be getting her entire bedroom redesigned. In addition to getting  new bedding, freshly painted walls and new flooring, her wooden bedroom set was brought to Mango Reclaimed to be given a whole new look. Customers will often bring in some of their paint swatches or couch cushions, or inspiration images when coming to the studio to consult on how to restyle their furniture and this customer was no exception, she arrived with her brand new bedding in hand and brought along a few family members for consulting reassurance.

The bedding was a beautiful white with hits of soft grey and reds so this is what we used as our jumping point to restyle her bedroom set, which consisted of a sleigh bed, a dresser, a tv stand and a bedside table.

I love really love this sleigh bed - it has such beautiful lines and once we van Gogh painted it out in Chivalry, added a little distressing and some natural beeswax it looked gorgeous!

These wooden crates were given a quick restyle using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk paint in 'Eulalie's Sky' - watch for them in upcoming Holiday Mini photo sessions by Trinity Design.

A few details . . . 

Like I mentioned, we also restyled a large dresser to go with this set. I played around with some different hardware options as I wasn't sure what my customer was going to choose. I knew this wasn't right for her room, but I loved how the turquoise knobs added a little pop of colour and playfulness to the dresser. 

I also tried some softer blue ceramic knobs on this dresser to see how they looked.

We also restyled a small TV stand for the same bedroom.

Now, I realize that this is starting to look a little bit 'grey on grey on grey', however we did have a bit of fun with the bedside table. Adding a pop of colour in 'And Your Little Dog Too'. 

As you can see I was still playing around with some hardware options, and my customer hadn't yet selected what they wanted for the bedside table so we don't even have the holes drilled at this point. I love how adding a small punch of colour to one piece of this set brings the whole thing together. I'm sure with all of the final hardware choices in place and the brand new bedding, walls and floors - this bedroom set looks fantastic.

What do you think? How do you like the pop of red? Which hardware choice was your favourite? Let us know in your comments below - we would love to hear from you!
