Once upon a time, there was a girl named Sam who had a dilemma with her bedroom decor.  Much to her dismay, she could not get ideas to work in that space.  She tried muted colors, bright colors, a Moroccan theme… all gone awry.  And then Sam called SAMSAM, a graphic designer and decor extraordinaire, rescued Sam and Mr. S from the color and interior design faux pas of their sleeping quarters.  SAM worked her magic to create a lovely and beautiful bedroom.  Mr. S and Sam were overjoyed!  And they all lived happily ever after…

{amazing art wall with pieces from Etsy, FABULOUS vintage lucite lamps, and a glam mirror trapezoid}
{soothing sitting area complete with a luxurious throw next to Mr. S’s side of the bed}
{art by moi and a glimpse of an ello armoire}
{oh so-lovely-to-walk-barefoot-on rug and graphic prints tied together with an antique chest}
{magnificent fig tree and joyful sitting area}
{close up of those awesome lamps and the ellos!}

Are you swooning yet?  I was excited to give y’all a sneak peek here!  And those that follow me on Instagram know that the last item arrived this week so I could finally do a bedroom reveal!  YAY!

Now let’s talk about Sam.  Sam has impeccable taste and we were so lucky to work with her.   For those of you that don’t know Mr. S, he can be extremely particular.  Sam was patient, attentive, super sweet, and blew us away with the end result.  Can I just say that going into our bedroom is like a fairytale!  It’s a dream come true.  THANK YOU SAM!!  She is so talented.  Putting beautiful details together to make our bedroom exquisite – like breathing for her.  The mohair headboard, soft and comfy linens, a killer trapezoid, lucite lamps… I can go on and on!  And get a hold of the Ello armoires flanking our bed providing a gorgeous smoked reflection.  We had to hard sell Mr. S on those bad boys, but I’m glad we did!  I LOVE all the fabulous textures and everything.  Seriously, our bedroom makes me and Mr. S so HAPPY!

You MUST check out her blog StyleSwoon.  This is an order, and I promise you won’t be sorry!  And see the before/after pictures of our bedroom and read her gorgeous words on StyleSwoon HERE!

    Your bedroom looks beautiful! I love all the textures! It’s stunning! Your wall art is lovely, I didn’t know you were an artist.

    I am ashamed to admit that our bedroom looks exactly the same as it did when we bought the house – only now we have our bed and side tables in it! Ooops :(

    • Samantha says:

      Oh my gosh Mica! You shouldn’t be ashamed. We’ve been in this place for over 3 years. This is the only room that is truly “done”. And we just got window treatments – we were using paper shades all this time!

    *swwoooon* I love how the room has a mix of modern and traditional pieces. The mellow blue is perfect – not too bright and not too grey, it’s just right! I need a Sam in my life to re-do our place. I have absolutely NO clue when it comes to picking colours and textures.
