As I have recently relocated to my new Master's Bedroom, I am leaving behind my old bedroom to my son who in his 20's has also developed a great love for designing and interior decorating. I am so happy that he developed the same interests with me and I would say, he is doing very well.
I have left most of my bedroom furnitures behind as I bought new ones for my new room. All he did was to repaint, re arrange the furniture and add few pieces of his choice. His color theme is black and white. Would you believe? The ceiling was all black. At first, I was a bit apprehensive painting the ceiling plain black. I'm not used to seeing black paint on ceiling as it will not only darken the room but I just have a strange feeling staring on a black ceiling (lol).
Surprisingly, it turned out pretty. Now I got his point. He would like to create a cozy atmosphere by incorporating some light effects. He had chosen "warm white" for his lightings and it was great!
He even bought a new set of bed sheet and comforter to match the color theme.
He created an accent wall which he painted black and white. This also serves as his entertainment wall. That was my old TV set as I now prefer a bigger screen :)
He also changed the floor covering to gray which matches everything in the room.
My old wardrobe cabinet used to be bigger and wider. He made our maintenance guy cut the old cabinet to only 1 panel and have the other excess plywoods be recycled into his working table, shelves and bed side table...smart huh? :)
That's how my son is! He knows how to recycle things to avoid spending on unnecessary things. We are a family who loves everything DIY and it works well to our favor. We understand that creating a beautiful space does not need to be expensive.
Now he has a minimalist but elegant room. :)
