BeforeWhen this young couple bought a fixer-upper in Toronto, the master bedroom had pink floral wallpaper. They stripped it off, patched the drywall and got as far as priming the walls when they burned out on renovating their new house. Helen and Kevin have chosen colors for the other rooms but are at a loss for this most important space.
AfterThe wood trim is painted black — the color of vinyl records — because white was too stark. Then they select copper for the drapes to blend with the wall color, and a valance adds a sophisticated touch. For a punch of cool color in the otherwise warm room, they choose a light glacier blue to reupholster the chair. A chocolate brown jacquard duvet cover with a striped lining ties the browns and blues together.
Did You Know? Brown is extremely comforting, so it's great for a bedroom.
