Hide CaptionShow CaptionTerra cotta wall color and weathered woods give this room an Old World style.
A warm, terra-cotta color on the walls sets the stage for Old World style. Lee chooses a matte finish paint to enhance the earthen clay feel of the walls. Weathered wood and black metal details add rustic charm. The bed is now coordinated with colorful accent pillows and a throw blanket. The room has come together and feels like it is meant for this couple.
