RedesignQuestion Four: I've inherited a bad color. How do I make it work?
You live here now so put your stamp on the room. When there is a specific room with the wrong color, the first thing you need to do is define what the room is all about to you by placing an inspirational piece that will drive the design for the entire room. For example, in this bedroom, our homeowners inherited a mint green color that made them feel sickly when they wanted to feel warmth and romance. The most beautiful statement in the room was their gorgeous traditional bed frame, which dominates the room view.
My next design step was to find opulent bedding that will fill the room with softness and warmth, adding the right color. This bedding has just the right look and balance of color to be the inspiration for pulling the room colors together. I found this gorgeous designer bed set with a perfect color combination to keep the couple's favorite color - green - in the design. Since the couple also loves their garden, the bedding has a classic garden pattern of roses and peonies accented by plaid and patterned fabrics that pick up the garden colors of yellow greens, corals and cream with a touch of light
