From Blah to Bold to Calm
From blah to bold to calm, this bedroom is like a chameleon. This room started out and remained a guestroom for quite a while until recently when it became more of a craft room/office with an occasional guest.
Phase 1 of this bedroom with the white walls, borrowed furniture, and Ikea bedding and cabinet had that just moved in look since, well, I had just moved in.
Once the time came for painting this bedroom, phase 2, I was in a crazy color mood and things became a bit bold. Grass green walls and futon, electric blue cabinet and rug, green and yellow accents, and lots of stuffed animals. And, yes, this was used as a guest room still.
Phase 1 to Phase 2 changes included:
- Upgrading the twin mattress to a full-sized futon
- Painting the walls a grass green
- Upgrading the small cabinet to a large cabinet to hold blankets and sheets and guest-type things
- Adding lots of accessories including stuffed animals and pictures
The current design, phase 3, reflects a calming of my personality. The 5 color elements used to design the room are:
- sage green
- dark brown
- brushed nickel
- medium brown
This room still has a ways to go, but it is currently functional.
