Nicole reached out about her subdued master bedroom...I love that she called it "the tan bedroom curse!". I am just as guilty as anyone about sticking with neutrals when it comes to design. When we renovated our house, we went with all whites, cream and beiges. It's definitely the safe choice, but not very exciting! So when Nicole reached out about helping her with her master bedroom...I was excited to take on the challenge! Here's a little more from Nicole on her space:
I need some help with our bedroom. I feel like I am stuck in the tan bedroom curse. Eventually we want to upgrade to an upholstered headboard and kingsize bed and probably new dresser, etc. We have new "tanish" carpet and would love to keep the curtains, but am open to other colors. Our bedroom is cream from when we moved in. I love Ballard, Pottery Barn, and Dwell style.
I will admit, the nice thing about tan is that it's easy to build on. I initially only added in a blue:
I love this space, but truly, it's very safe.
So we added swapped out some of the blue for some coral...
And it was magic! The perfect mix of feminine and masculine. It's neutral yet fun with the pops of color. Her existing striped curtains are the perfect base to build on...and I like how fresh, yet cozy the space is now. Nicole...let us know how it turns out!
