Mas­ter bed­room

Your Home and Garden - - Your Home -

The striking flo­ral De­sign­ers Guild wall­pa­per fea­ture in the mas­ter bed­room was a gamble on Katie’s part – the first time the Houli­hans saw it was af­ter it had been in­stalled. Thank­fully it turned out to be Lisa’s favourite part of the house. Katie strate­gi­cally bought the wall­pa­per at the start of the project to en­sure she had her show-stop­per sorted no mat­ter what hap­pened with the reno (and the budget). She also had the vel­vet head­board and some scat­ter cush­ions custom-made to match the tones in the wall­pa­per. Hav­ing turned the fourth bed­room into a crisp white en­suite and slick black walk-in wardrobe, Katie hid both be­hind a custom-made, full-height slid­ing door.

Eden de­scribes the orig­i­nal house as be­ing run-down but clas­sic, with good bones. “It was the lit­tle things we liked; the lit­tle bits of char­ac­ter and the cor­ner sec­tion.”
