Bedroom Ideas

I am in desperate need of a bedroom makeover but on a budget.....
Remember this picture from HGTV Dream House?


I've tried looking for some green shades i like for the walls, and while i need to visit The Depot, I found this online. I like Straightforward Green, but am afraid it's too bold--but at the same time, it's what i am going for.....


And here is the duvet I want. (Ahem, my birthday is March 6th, ahem)




But i ask do I paint the ceiling because i don't want to get into all of that but man that would be easier than cutting in, lol
and another question.......green walls. White duvet. What color headboard?? I love this one from West Elm but I don't see me acquiring it in the near future.





I might make one---I have found directions here and here or here.

Thoughts.....anyone?

Bueller?

Bold is great!!! the green against the all White I think will send a statement. YOu can always use blacks or other colors in the room to accent the walls and furniture!Good luck

Oh, I am so excited to see how this turns out...I bet it will be great! Where did you find that duvet??

Honestly, I would try and mimic that inspiration room as much as possible. It looks incredible, so I would stick to that look exactly.

katie--i found it at west elm. westelm.com. LOVE that place!!

wow, i think you should go balls-out and paint the walls AND ceiling your choice of green. and i love the duvet cover you chose, and if you got a geometric/contemporary white headboard like that, it would really look amazing against a green wall.

I think the headboard being white is awesome, or even a dark brown. I love brown and green together. I wanna check out those links on how to make your own headboard.

Have you thought about trying to recreate the headboard using a trellis or gate? Look around some nurseries and garden centers. I like the white geometric against that green...so crisp!

I think white or dark brown furniture would look great against the walls. LOVE the green!!!

Mary said...

I never know whether to paint the ceiling of rooms either. And what a colossal PITA to have to do! I say if you love the bold green, go for it! I think the headboard would look awesome in black.

Our living room is about the shade of festival green and we love it. I think the darker shade with all white would be amazing in a bedroom. That headboard is pretty sweet, too.

I would say go for an orange or red colored headboard.

What a beautiful room! I absolutely like this room. I like the striking color of green here, too. Trust your instincts and go for the shade of green you want. Bold is beautiful as they say. This has really inspired me to redecorate my bedroom. I think I'll drop by our local store and buy new bedroom furniture in Dallas, TX tomorrow. I'll probably add in new mattresses, Dallas, TX, because mine is already worn out. Thanks for the great design ideas!
