While I'm on the topic of the guest bedroom, I thought I would break down the color scheme for everyone to show some other examples of how the scheme can be put together. I also wanted to show the scheme in a different setting, other than a bedroom, to show how versitile the scheme can be.
1. My previous post mentions that this color scheme starts with dark gray walls, similar to Dunn Edwards Calico Rock (DE6299). I typically get my paint matched at Home Depot or Lowes, but you can also order directly from Dunn Edwards if you prefer.
2. Fabrics in this color scheme should remain in the white or beige family. Similar to this curtain panel from Z Gallerie that adds texture, but is a solid color.
In a dining room setting, you could also use a curtain that has a soft pattern contrasted by white. Similar to this set from Ikea:
3. Wood furniture pieces look great in a painted white within this scheme. Pieces like this dining table from Ikea add visual contrast against the darker walls, creating a focal point within the room.
4. In a dining room setting, green accents can be brought into the space through table linens, place mats, and napkins, like these place mats from West Elm...
...or, you can use a centerpiece of fresh, or artificial flowers, to create add some elegance.
5. Bring in black accents through gallery style photo displays, like this set from Michaels.
As always, play up the scheme to incorporate your own personal style. Select pieces that inspire you, or that are meaningful to you in some way. If this color scheme inspires a room in your house, please send photos back to firstname.lastname@example.org, referencing Color Scheme 1003. Your space may be featured on my blog.
