Orlando - crazy, DIY genius - refreshes his bedroom with a simple painted border.

Photographs by Sean Gin.

I recently decided it was time for a bedroom update. The paint had seen better days and I just wanted a refresh, but I loved the color of my bedroom too much to change it dramatically. I’ve always preferred to add color with art and objects rather than relying on a crazy wall paint (though I do love a dramatic color from time to time, don’t get me wrong). I live in a bright, happy apartment nestled against the Hollywood Hills and my favorite thing about it is the sunlight that streams through the windows all day.

This room makeover takes a full day or two because you need to wait for the paint to dry but it’s definitely worth the time. Click through the images for my step-by-step instructions!

Love, Orlando
