My older sister, Julia is moving off campus from a dorm to a bedroom is a house she’s renting with a group of friends. I was super excited when she turned to me for help decorating her new space, since she now has hardwood floors and room for a queen bed and dresser! I immediately got to work honing-in on an affordable bedroom design that was space and cost efficient, without sacrificing on style. I knew Julia would prefer a neutral color palette that leaned towards cool colors, so I chose a wallpaper pattern I could mount on hollow-core doors behind the bed for a removable pop of color that would be easy to install and remove. I found stylish smaller pieces from west elm that my sister could take with her to her next place, and hacked the dresser for a design solution that didn’t break the budget on the larger pieces in the room.

I’ll be up in Boston to install my sister’s room and share a walk-through of the space on the west elm snapchat at the end of the month, so stay tuned to their account (and mine as well for behind-the-scenes) and for the official reveal on their blog Front+Main soon!
