This Crazy Bedroom Makeover Proves You Don't Need a Big Budget to Get High Style

Gabrielle Savoie

When a newly married Brynn Elliott Watkins moved into her now-husband's apartment three years ago, he had been sharing it with a few guys—and it showed. A few years ago, Aaron Craig, a video producer and director, had snatched up the airy three-bedroom Victorian apartment in Brooklyn's up-and-coming Ditmas Park, but he left it pretty bare—that is until he married Watkins, a wardrobe stylist, creative consultant, and blogger for her website, Being Elliott.

Though it took a lot of imagination at first to envision the apartment in its finished state, this didn't deter Watkins, who was determined to chip away at the design, one room at a time. The final project: the master bedroom. "Because our days are often hectic, we love to come home to this oasis," she told us. "This is a great retreat after a busy day of working around Manhattan." With a little imagination and a lot of elbow grease, she was able to turn this bachelor pad bedroom into a heavenly suite for her and her husband to wind down in. Think you need a lot of space or budget to create the space of your dreams? Think again—this stylist shows us how it's done.
