Romantic Bedroom Retreat
A clashing palette is replaced with theatrical touches and a sense of balance in a '40s bungalow.
After buying this 1940s bungalow, the owners tried to create a bedroom that was a rich, romantic and daring retreat. Unfortunately, the light-mauve paint didn't do the job, and the purple bedding was all wrong. All in all, the clashing palette created a harsh effect, not the restful, romantic feel the couple was trying to achieve.
Now, blending the restfulness of solids with the personality of patterns has created a visual balance. A large wooden valance for the window behind the bed holds tiered burgundy curtains, and a vintage chandelier illuminates the burgundy bedding. The eternity-knot motif on the bedding is repeated in the candle sconces, sections of the curtains and the stenciling on the walls. To brighten the room, the ceiling and lower half of the walls are painted pewter, while the upper half of the walls is painted burgundy. The chandelier is painted pewter to match the other accessories in the room.
