updating my bedroom

bronanNovember 24, 2012
Ihave a white bedroom with white duvet,bedside cubes and curtains. my dresser is nice mahogany. i really liked some bedrooms on here which used dark charcoal grey. today i bought myself a new charcoal bedspread - i havent got a bedhead but i wanted to paint the wall behind my bed in charcoal grey but unsure now that i have a charcoal bed. i also want to change my curtains for my large windows which face north. im very impressed with help others have got from this website so be glad of the same.... thank you

I think you could paint the wall Kendal Charcoal and get grey and white zig-zag curtains. You really don't need a head board. Get a really large framed poster with lots of color to hang over the bed. Check out allposter.com.

For me, your bedroom is missing two things - style cohesion and texture. For starters, I would replace the white pillow with two of these: [houzz=
Gray Eye Pillow Cover by The Lacey Placey · More Info

Your bedside lamps are nice, but now with the gray comforter they need a new style: [houzz=]

There's an outlet right where a headboard would go, so instead, I like this art over your bed: [houzz=
Prospect Park #2, by Joseph O. Holmes · More Info
] or if you prefer some color and something quirky: [houzz=
The Moose Is Loose Print By THE WORD SHOP · More Info

For curtains, see if you like any of these: [houzz=
Mod Leaves Curtains · More Info
] or [houzz=
Ikat Ogee Linen Window Panel | west elm · More Info
] or [houzz=
Montecito Panels - Grey · More Info

For nightstands, try these: [houzz=
White Table with 2 Drawers · More Info

If you decide to paint your wall charcoal gray, be sure to add art with color behind the bed.

You could jazz up your walls with one off these, plus add a ton of storage space.

I think a piece of vintage art above the bed would be lovely. You have 1/2 modern and those adorable lamps and pillow that are girly.
Personally I'd keep the white change or cover the sweet lampshades with a pop of color and find a thrift store headboard and spray paint it a color in the fabric and use the leftover fabric to make a rectangular pillow 1/2 the width of the square but twice as long as the square pillow. It will cost less than painting the room.
