New York based interior designer Jana Bek recently revamped a master bedroom in a Philadelphia townhouse to create a space that is both colorful and calm…

The couple wanted to balance their love of color with their desire for a serene space with plenty of storage to boot. To achieve a bold but airy abode the striking headboard is paired with bright white bedding which allows the pillows to pop as well. The sleek Niche Dressers add to the airy quality & also solve the storage need.

To provide a spa like feel underfoot, the neutral Jute Herringbone rugs are layered with reindeer hides the couple scooped up on an Alaskan holiday.

Wow! I love the pop of color with the Headboard!


July 31, 2013

Love this! Clean white with pops of color are just as it should be to ease into your comfort zone. Great job and very inspirational!

Clean, simple, minimal, love it! For future reference, photos taken from the EXACT position on before and after would be much more impactful in my opinion.

Gorgeous transformation! Where can I find the painting above the bed? I looked at your shop, but didn’t see many to purchase? Thanks!

By far the best before and after I have seen on West Elm! Love it!

Very impressed with this designer’s use of color. I also like the “real” before and after photographs. Too many times you see the “before” and the “after” is an artist rendering of some fantasy room that has no basis in reality… doors, windows, and space restraints! Pieces that the clients like and have acquired are incorporated into the design, rather than totally starting from scratch. Love the E-Design Concept! Great to know you can do it virtually on your own schedule.

Hi All! Thank you so much for your comments, it is greatly appreciated!

Doug – I totally agree with you but as I do Edesign it’s tricky to manage the before/afters. My clients take the ‘before’ and ‘afters’ are by my photographer. I’ll try my best though!

Sheila – the client found it at a market in Philly, the inspiration was a Claire Desjardins print but I will have more artwork up in my shop soon!

This is nice and actually the lst West Elm redo I have seen that would inspire me to shop there.

Doug is totally correct – perhaps you should take a before, Jana! Control for lighting as well. Of course, the net effect couldn’t be more dramatic as posted. It’s just hard to process.

Love this bedroom! I do not typically gravitate towards bright colors, but, this is the perfect balance. It makes me want to brighten up my bedroom! Love the artwork and the amount of storage that the bedroom offers. Always wanted a bench in my room!
