Color Inspiration for Bedroom

I feel like I'm becoming all talk and no action. I have so much I want to get done throughout our condo, but progress has been slow. For one, another weekend went by and I didn't finish my cabinet, despite making some progress. I have plans for basically every room in my home but I am having trouble prioritizing (I want it all done now!) so as a result, not much has gotten accomplished.

One such project is my bedroom. I felt like it was finished nearly a year ago, but the room never felt cozy. I wanted to warm it up a bit but couldn't figure out what to do with it. A while back I found a great Jonathan Adler sheet set (mismatched, on clearance) that became a start to the new color scheme, but on its own it wasn't enough contrast to be effective.

Finally one day last week, I got the inspiration I needed - from a scarf and bracelet I was wearing!


Enter coral and bronze. I love how it looks against the sheet set (which you can see to the left.) I actually only have the flat sheet and two shams, so instead of using them for their intended purpose, I made throw pillows out of the shams, and the sheet will become curtains!


I love this capiz shell mirror I found at Home Goods. I think it really works with this scheme! I might even go bolder with an accent fabric (it was actually an old skirt that I can't seem to part with):


I'm still debating over this extra fabric, but in a small pillow it might be fun. This scheme may only suit me through the warm seasons, but we'll see!

I am going to try to finish the bedroom before I move on to other rooms. All I have to do is make the curtains and put a few finishing touches. So I hope to finally have a finished project soon!

I feel the same way about my house sometimes. I guess thinking about ideas is much more fun than getting to the work of pulling everything together!

I'm excited to see how you use the new elements in your room!

I love the pattern on the sheet and the pillow you made looks great. Looking forward to the finished project.
