Before and After: From Stark and Sad to Warm and Romantic

Su Casa member Zulkey bought her home less than a year ago, and since that time she, her husband, and her friend Jessica Riddle have made countless improvements throughout the house. When Zulkey and her husband moved into the house, the bedroom was a little limited in the personality department.

To see how they breathed life into this blank canvas,


Zulkey writes, "Jess painted the room grape mist and the doors cocoa bean and she added coral knobs on the closet doors."

Crate and Barrel and West Elm were sourced for curtains and bedding, and Jessica cleverly fashioned the headboard for the bed from her own materials.

I love the improvement to the room. It went from stark and sad to warm and romantic. The browns and reds add such a cozy feel to the space, and painting those closet doors really made them look luxe. Now I'm inspired to see how I can transform my home with paint!

they're lava-colored--like the curtain and the accents on the linens

I like it, except, are those wardrobe doorknobs red? I don't really like those all that much, lol. I'm too picky!

thanks! One of the biggest differences too is the curtains. Before, we had these vertical silver blinds and you couldn't tell if it was night or day out if they were closed. Now we can darken the room but still let a little bit of light in which makes everything feel more natural and breathable.
