Design Showcase: Gray & Yellow Master

I was recently contacted by Debbie regarding her master bedroom.  Since it's a brand new home, they're just settling into the space and figuring out what direction to go in.  You'll notice that the space is pretty large, which can often make you want to fill the space with furniture and decor.  Sometimes though, it's nice to let the room breathe a bit {something I'm still trying to learn myself!}.  Here's a little more from Debbie:

We just built our house not long ago, so excuse the mess! The room is big and I'm unsure where to go with it. We did just purchase the end tables, bureau and dresser, so I would obviously keep them. Also, this is the paint color we chose. It is Benjamin Moore, "Ashley Gray." 

Basically, I don't know what to do with the empty corner spaces and wall decor, and would be open to new bedding!

As far as colors go, I am really open to anything. Right now we have very little color. The comforter is an orangey/brown pattern, and that's the only color we have. We would probably keep the sofa we have in there, but could bring in some more colors with pillows or a throw or something to match bedding. Also the lamps are really old from Ikea and are just a neutral color and really don't look good, especially with the cream panels. So I am open to any color. I try to keep it gender neutral and not have it super girly for my husband. 

My eye tends to go towards warm/darker things with pops of color. I would like to avoid bedding that is all white if possible. With little know how that goes! We are young, I am 29 and my husband is 28, so we like a lot of modern looking decor, but also affordable!

One big thing I would like to accomplish is just basic wall/dresser decor that I get so confused about. I know I'd definitely like something over my tall bureau, and I'd also like to put some accents on the dresser below where the TV is mounted (the wires under the TV are in the process of being hidden behind the wall..we just moved in not long ago). I also get confused about what accents to put in the open corners, as they seem to look so bare.

The nice thing about this space is that Debbie has most of the furniture she wants to use int he space, so my job was purely integrating decor and a couple accent pieces.

Pillows: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4

This gorgeous painting was what I based the rest of the decor around.  I love the grays, purples,whites, and yellows and added some silvers to pull the rest of the room together.  Since the room has gray walls, I thought a white tufted headboard would serve as a great focal point.  Additionally, the white lamps and mirror over the bed would help set off the dark furniture as well.  I see the poufs going at the foot of the bed and the nesting tables going alongside the sofa.  Last, the candles and jewelry box would make great accents on top of the media console.

I really love this color palette and glad that Debbie was on board with it too!
