3 Bumps

What color is your bedroom?

I want to repaint the master which is about 16X20 regular ceiling height so not a huge space and we have the traditional bed set in dark wood. I want to go with a cream with a cool undertone of pink or blue rather then warm with a yellow base. Do you think that will make the room look stark?

  • Ours are an olive green and beige paint with white and brown linens and antique wood finishes
    I think the cool tones will be nice, whatever makes you feel at peace. You're the one that has to be in that room every night!

  • Ours is a color called Ruffled Feathers. It's sort of a mushroom-y color. 


    It's a fairly small room, only 16 feet wide, so I didn't want to go any darker than this.

  • I think that'll be fine. Not too stark or weird.

  • It's very boring actually. Neutral walls... off white curtains, brown comforter... so I used bright red as an accent. I have throw pillows, a red blanket hung on the wall above the bed, like a curtain... and red glass throughout the room. It's much more livable now!!

  • Our walls are a light grey. I think a cream color with an undertone of any color really would work with dark wood furniture. Dark wood is pretty neutral so you can do a lot with it. Good luck!
