All About

A warm, buttery yellow provides a backdrop for neutral-colored bedding and darker wood tones that grace this design. Crown molding adds a traditional element and is one of the more inexpensive ways, next to painting, that can completely transform the look of a room. The long wall next to the bed is made into a feature wall with some molding, a pair of sconces and a large framed mirror.
