5 Amazing Bedroom Transformations
Window seats, a gas-burning fireplace and a soothing color palette were among the requests designer Jeanne Campana received from her clients when renovating their master bedroom in East Islip, New York.
The homeowners added photos from Houzz to an ideabook they shared with Campana to help communicate the style they wanted. Among the special features in the room is a custom-designed floor-to-ceiling wood headboard with a grain stain and gray chenille upholstery.

Campana also modified the stacked-tray ceiling to complement the clean lines found elsewhere in the updated design. “I was looking up at the ceiling in the middle of the process and asked our contractor if we could square it up to make it feel more open and also feel like an enhancement for the room,” she says.
The guest bedroom in this English country house received a dramatic transformation from designer Karen Knox of Making Spaces. The designer says the key to the makeover was selecting a bold, floral-motif wallpaper that was certain to make a big impression. “We needed a large-scale wallpaper because there wasn’t going to be a lot of stuff in there,” Knox says.
The designer selected a sleek four-poster bed with a thin black frame to pick up the ebony-stained floors and black-painted trim. “We were going to go for an upholstered headboard,” Knox says, “but when we found the wallpaper there was no point in having a big, solid piece of furniture in front of it.”
