Bedrooms Full of Color and Life

Not everyone may be comfortable with a bedroom
full of color - but they sure do make for fun and
interesting rooms... Rooms full of life.

I have a soft spot for rooms with dark colors because
they usually feel cozy and have a certain atmosphere
to them - a certain ambience if you will.

Flowered wallpaper isn't usually a favorite of mine,
but I have to admit that the flower print looks fantastic
in this room. The flowers are larger and not too busy
making it a perfect backdrop for the clean white bedding.
Simply gorgeous.

Green is such a soothing color - with the right
hue, the room can also feel fresh and alive.

The greens, chartreuse and yellow really liven
up this attic bedroom.

Monochromatic rooms can be really fun to put
together when there are so many shades to work

Here's a sweet room done up in a dusky rose.

This blue and white reminds me of
blue and white chinaware.

A rainbow of colors.

The same dusky rose with a different look
simply by swapping out blankets and

I absolutely love how rustic this room looks with the
wood paneled walls. The deep magenta really gives
the room a nice pop of color.

Greens, blues pinks and yellows - who says
one has to stick to a monochromatic scheme?

This is a super inspiring room for color if I've ever seen one.
You'll notice the walls are white and all of the color comes
from everything else in the room - the curtains, bedding,
pillows - right down to the super fun striped chair.

Hope this post has given you some inspiration to bring
some color into your bedrooms.

This is a great post. I love color -- and I love color in the bedroom. Ours is a mix of orange, turqoise, black, off-white, cream and others. Cheery and full of life, but still restful.

Oh, I like all of these.
Can't choose.
2 or 4, no maybe 8 or 10.
Nope - can't decide :)

I painted the living room in my house a deep, dark, navy blue. It is my favorite room in the house. Visitors always comment on the paint color. :-)


Beach Vintage said...

Oh my, I cant choose which one I like the best. I do like the branches hanging over the bed though and the pretty crocheted bed rug.

My favorite is the blue & white room. It is just lovely!

Some really great examples of using color the right way :) Although I love the first photo with the bright yellow, my bedroom is more like the 'greens, blues, pinks, and yellows' pic - I can't choose a single color to go with.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of
your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
