Beckys room

    In 2014 my Houston home went through a major remodel. Last month I started to share the before and after photos and thought I would follow up with one of the other room makeovers.


    Most of the remodeling was concentrated on the ground floor of our home. We had originally decided to redo the three upstairs bathrooms, but as with this kind of project, once you start with one room it kind of snowballs and gets expanded to another, and another, and another etc

    The first room to be added to the ‘to do list’ was my daughter Rebecca’s who had her own consultation with our designer, Janet from Habicon Interiors to select the design elements for her bedroom. My only input was to supply a budget!


    Rebecca’s room is quite large and had always felt a little unfinished even though we had painted it a few times in the 10 or so years we have lived at this house. Having outgrown the pink, and then the beige color scheme of the past, Rebecca went with a grey palette with accents of turquoise that flows well with the rest of the house now.


    Much of the furniture was found at West Elm, with a few accessories from Crate and Barrel and High Fashion. A local Houston company made the headboard to Janet’s specifications.
    I love the feel of this room now and think that it is so much more practical as it has a seating area in front of the tv unit with the game machines tidied away out of sight. Rebecca particularly likes the new West Elm drapery panels that Janet added black out lining to so that the room is pitch black when they are drawn. The carpenter rebuilt some of the units in the walk in closet giving additional draw space which should mean that it is better organized (but that’s just my wishful thinking). This room is now a welcome haven for Rebecca when she is home from college and as it is empty for much of the time, it also is one of the tidiest in the house 🙂


    Check back soon for some more photos from this and other remodels.
