Bedroom: After

There were two main things we wanted to do in the bedroom: get rid of the beige walls so we had a paint that actually matched the carpet, and find a clever way to fill up the space so it didn't look empty. As a two-bedroom unit, it made sense for such a large space to be multi-functional and not wasted.

The walls were painted in Dulux Image Tone Quarter, the same as the rest of the unit. We wanted a black-and-white theme for the bed, and found quilt covers in the most unlikely places - Big W and Spotlight (shown in the pics). We bought two white Malm two-drawer chests as bedside tables for extra storage (Ikea). The lamps are also from Ikea - a Lersta floor lamp, and a table lamp (no longer in production).To make use of the rest of the space, we decided to add a reading chair and lamp on the right as you walk into the space. After much searching, we decided on an Italian leather replica Barcelona chair (eBay), combined with a Lersta floor lamp and a Lack side table (Ikea). The grey throw rug is just a cheap one from KMart. The chest of drawers next to the chair is our old furniture with white handles instead of red. The two long mirrors (Target) will eventually move to the inside of the cupboard doors.
