Room for Improvement: Mastersuite
Having a pretty view can be priceless in South Florida. But if the outside is the focal point of your place, you still can't neglect what's inside. In tonight's room for improvement, martin amado shows us how to make a condo compliment its surroundings.
WSVN--We're moving on up. We're working on a master bedroom in this high rise that has a gorgeous view of the bay and of course we want it to reflect high style as well.
Martin: "Room for Improvement. Hi Maria."
Maria: "Hi, Martin."
Martin: "What are you goals with it? What do you have it mind?"
Maria: "I just want to change the bedspread, the pictures, maybe something on the windows. Just a whole look for my bedroom."
So the plan with the bedroom is to do away with the florals and make it a bit more contemporary at the same time it's looking a bit bare so with just the right accent pieces it will turn into a beautiful bedroom at the end.
Now with the floral bedding gone, we can now update the look of the bedroom with a new comforter set. Notice how this one doesn't have a busy pattern so it gives the room a contemporary feel and at the same time it picks up on the colors of the art work that was the inspiration piece for the design.
A desk lap belongs in an office not in an master bedroom folks, let's find something else.
This end table is from her living room but it makes a great night stand.
The wall space above doors is often ignored but if you put a decorative scroll on top it just turns it into something special.
A final touch is an area rug at an angle because that way it breaks up the squareness of the room and we're done.
This morning a plain master bedroom got a brand new look and went from rags to riches becoming a luxurious retreat for under twelve under dollars. [$1,127]."
Martin: "I love it. Oh, I like this...This is cool. I like the colors. The colors are really nice."
Martin: "Now, have an equally impressive master bedroom that compliments that
gorgeous view outside. Another makeover complete until next week."
