updating my bedroom
November 24, 2012 in Design Dilemma
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.

Thanks - where is that colour from? do you think narrow or wide zigzag curtains.

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]

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

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] or if you prefer some color and something quirky: [houzz=The Moose Is Loose Print By THE WORD SHOP]

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

For nightstands, try these: [houzz=White Table with 2 Drawers]

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