It is white and blue that traditionally ushers in the magic of sun, sand and surf into your bedroom. But go down a different route this summer and replace the white in that equation with far more exciting shades of gray. Apart from giving your nautical or coastal style bedroom a fresh, new look, replacing white with gray gives you greater decorating freedom and a chance to try out newer shades of blue. In fact, you can fill the backdrop with light gray and maybe even a hint of white and use pops of teal, turquoise or periwinkle for greater visual impact. From bedding and drapes to a complete bedroom furniture set in blue, a gray background lets you switch between hues with ease.
One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills), then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue. It is a DIY project that you can easily try out at home. The hardest part is of course finding that mesmerizing slab of wood that you absolutely adore. Once that is done, everything else becomes a whole lot easier. If you really are not the DIY type, then you can even order a one-of-a-kind bed with a live-edge wood frame and headboard from sites like Anthropologie. cool headboards.
This sounds like too much color in one room, you say? Not really, as the inspirations below showcase ever so elegantly! While combining blue and yellow with a splattering of red might seem a bit overwhelming in theory, the three colors seem to work in perfect harmony when used intelligently. Again, blue is the dominant hue in this trio and is generally the color that feels the most natural for crafting the backdrop of the bedroom. Yet, a mellow and calming shade of yellow can also take over in traditional boys’ bedrooms. The idea here is to create ‘pockets or blocks’ of color without one invading the other. And those unhappy with audacious red can try out spunky orange instead!
