vanessas bedroom — after

yay! i e-designed a space! in case you missed the before yesterday, i virtually designed my friend vanessa’s bedroom via email, text and facetime. and i am so happy with how much better it looks. i’m now helping her with her new studio space too!

now let’s remember the before…


we didn’t spend a ton but she was able to purchase a new bed, we got new linen bedding, we swapped out the knobs to keep her existing nightstands and i even sold her some things from my yard sale lol (the wood clock and the cactus art print).

to replace that dorm room hamper, we put a cute little wood bench along the wall and it looks sooo much better!

this little tiny wall between the window and the bathroom needed something, but the wall is tiny! so glad i found this sweet little shelf to create a cute vignette.

ps i would totally take on more e-design clients hint hint…

    Very nice! Where are you sourcing your pampas grass? I’m having a hard time finding quality, height, and cost to be what I’m looking for.

    1. Molly Madfis says:

      vanessa just cut some down from a nearby park lol

  2. Okay, now I’m dying to buy new bedding. These H&M sheets look darker on their website, though — do you think they’re lighter in person? Or do they just photograph that way?

    1. Molly Madfis says:

      sorry! the original sheets are sold out — that’s why i just marked them similar

  3. Beautiful! Do you know where the picture frame for the cactus print is from? Thanks!

    1. Molly Madfis says:

      the frame is from framebridge

  4. Love it! We have the same hamper and I hate the aesthetic but love how easy it makes sorting laundry so real talk — where does the dirty laundry go now?

  5. Love it! Could you share the size of all the pillows used (except the lumbar, that one I know). Thanks a lot. ❤️

    Could you tell me the source for the ceiling fan ?

  7. Wow! You did a great job! I love the minimalist flair but still very welcoming. The color you picked is wonderful.

  8. I’ve never understood where all the extra bed pillows go at night. Do you just chuck them on the floor, throw them out the window, what? I want to live that excessive pillow life but have no idea where to start. Are there giant wall pockets I can get to put my extra pillows in? Or should I repurpose a coat rack as a pillow tree?

  9. Great work! I love the subtle splash of colour you’ve added to the room it really gives it life. It just looks like such a homely space, love what you have done with it. Take care, Jamie.

    This looks amazing! I adore your style. I would love to connect with you on e-design for my living room. Look forward to hearing from you.

    1. Molly Madfis says:

      hi kayleigh! email me molly @ almostmakesperfect dot com!

  11. Adore what you’ve done with the room Molly! Love the mix of grey and peachy pinks as they complement each other beautifully. I’ve been quite scared to be adventurous with colours, however this has inspired me.

    Looking forward to your next post!

    Best wishes,

    Love what you did to her space. Looks beautiful. I would love to take you up on the e-design for my bedroom and maybe later living room. I’m a bit stuck and being indecisive. Look forward to hearing back. You’ve inspired me so much.
