a more neutral bedroom

If you remember, I have a fully thought out and half executed plan for our master bedroom.


The fabulous deep blue paint makes the room look much more pulled together. And I love the great pattern mix of textiles on our bed. Our window shades still need to be made but I have a bolt of that colorful pattern waiting for them.


I’ve got this great plan that I love which is all about pattern and energy… so then why am I totally gravitating towards these neutral bedrooms?


I can feel the turn of the tide towards wanting to calm my space down and this throws a major wrench in my half designed room. That last image above with the dark walls is a direction I could go  – basically all neutral beyond the walls and a more culled down palette.

But I think the best compromise between my original inspiration and vision (below):


Will be something more like this dream of a bedroom from the Anna Spiro designed Halcyon House in Australia. It strikes just the right balance of soft and easy and high energy pattern, primarily due to the simple blue, white and champagne palette.


With this change of course in mind, I’m making some minor adjustments to my rug and headboard choices to simmer things down.


And here’s how it might look all together:


Honestly, seeing it here it starts to look too bland, but you would still still our dark wood floors between the bedskirt and the rug. Maybe I’ll just end up with just a fluffy flotaki to land on either side of the bed and call it day.

So what do you think? Make the adjustments to a more neutral zone or keep some of the original flair?
