Color in The Bedroom

Color Makes The Bedroom Go Round…

I was looking at my Better Homes and Garden and I came across this picture and I just had to share…

Frame your Bed

How to make a statement that says “WOW”…   And talk about easy…  Soft lavender paint frames the bed and that is framed with a  deeper shade of Lavender that says “Look at ME”!

The white headboard just pops against that soft lavender and the bedding is made with shades of Lavender, Purple, and Black.    Those black side tables really bring out the black in the duvet cover.

This idea can be done in any color to liven up the dullest of rooms, try shades of Turquoise and Teal,  Pink and Coral,  let your imagination run away and remember:  Have fun, color makes the world go round.

Drama!!!  Do you want a Dash of Drama in the Bedroom?

Trendy with a little Drama

This striking black headboard and chandelier demand attention from one’s eye and brings deliberate drama to this sky blue backdrop.

To add additional spice mix elaborate bedding patterns with feminine touches of red or magenta.

These looks can easily be duplicated and by adding your own flair for design, make them your own.

Hope you enjoyed these two decorating ideas, and please add your comments and idea and share them with other readers.

I was looking at my Better Homes and Garden on line and I came across this picture and I said,  “Boy, that looks like our Bryant Park quilt by Taylor Linens.

In the article it talks about how to make this feed-sack-covered headboard.   How a large feed sack provides enough fabric to cover a twin-size headboard.  HOW?  OK, Staple two layers of batting over the front side of a piece of plywood, and then staple the feed sack on top of the balling.  Pull the fabric taut as you add staples to the center of each side and then as you work your way to the corners.  For an elegant finish, nail a piece of architectural salvage to the top of the upholstered headboard.

If you are anything like my husband and I, we could spend the whole day going through antique malls just looking for that right item to finish a room, one just brings it all together.
