We’re excited to kick off Huntervention™, a new series all about the small things that you can do to your room to make a big difference. Most of us have that one space in our home that needs a little more love. The trick is to liven it up without spending a lot of time or money. That’s where a Huntervention™ comes in. Our first challenge was to help transform a master bedroom. As soon as we entered the room, our team immediately saw the potential with its abundant natural lighting, smooth tray ceiling and blank walls. Plus, we were thrilled to team up with Ashley Toney – interior designer and owner of First Fruit Collection, a home furnishings and accessories boutique in the Memphis area. We were looking to give this master bedroom a calm, relaxing feel. And we did it with just a few quick and easy steps that could help inspire your own Huntervention™:
1. Paint perfection.
Choose a color with a calm, earthy effect. We went with Sherwin Williams’ “Comfort Grey”, which immediately opened up the room.
2. Fan up.
Help your room come alive in both form and function. We chose Hunter’s 1886, a two-bladed fan with an intricately-designed motor house and romantic detail. Then we applied the “Comfort Grey” paint to the center of the tray ceiling with white trim around the edges. By giving careful thought to the ceiling, we helped the entire room to feel warm and cozy.
3. Start with a clean slate
Consider white bedding so you have the flexibility to change up pillows with different accent colors.
4. Hang it high.
Installing curtains high helps open up your room by giving it a taller ceiling effect.
5. Let it shine.
Add some pop with a few shiny metallic accents. See the full Huntervention™ from beginning to end, and then start your own!
