I recently was asked to help with an online bedroom color consultation. I have helped this particular client in the past with a color consult online for her dining room which she ended up loving the final results! Her latest project is that she needs help with was her master bedroom:
She wrote that she wanted to update her bedroom and did not know where to start. The carpet is chocolate brown and has to stay for now. The bed is actually a platform bed (her husband bought it she was quick to tell me) and also needs to stay for the time-being. She needs help choosing a wall color because she is tired of her green walls.
My first thought was how beautiful her artwork was. I just love her flower print:
The home owner loves it too so I decided to choose my colors from the picture. I had her try a couple different samples and the color she loved best was Alexandria Beige HC- 77. This beige is a color in the print and is a perfect background to the artwork. After painting she wrote to me:
How are you? Thanks for getting back to me last night. I did paint my bedroom and you were right again. Alexandria beige is a beautiful color.
I love it! It is a bit dark though, only because my bedroom only has one window so it doesn’t get very much light.
I’ll send you some pics.
I think the color looks great! Are you going to put picture over bed? That would look great. I would get white bedding with just a little color in and accessorize the room with orange accents! Will look great! Best, Kelly
Kelly, I think the color is beautiful also! I probably need to get use to it being darker but i think that is one of the most beautiful colors I’ve ever seen.
I love your idea of the bedding. I was thinking of blues and silvers but do you think oranges and whites would be prettier? I like the idea of the rug too.
You really are good at this. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Rosie
I love the picture over the bed! It is really beautiful. The comforter works perfect!
The only other bit of advice I might suggest is if the bed was brought off the floor as well as the lamps next to your bed higher, your room will have better lighting and will work better with your windows. The lamps will help bring light to the middle plane of the room instead of down low. I think it will help make your room much brighter. Also, the two black screens you had hanging on each side of the floral picture before you painted would look great on the long wall working with your three prints.
Thanks Rosie for allowing me to share! Always a pleasure working with you.
Comments? Do you think Alexandria Beige was a good color choice?
