This is the entry to my Master Bedroom. Double doors. I wanted to keep the bedroom dark. A great idea would be to add mirrors in the paneling of the doors. Very French.
As you open the door, you can see a picture i love. Very romantique. It is the welcome to the area, introducing the mood of the room.
I always take inspiration on my house art work do design the garden....Also good if designing for others. Can't go wrong this way.
The bedroom should be your refuge, so i think that starting with your master when you put together your house should be the first thing you do. I wanted a tranquil, romantic, simple, aqua blue bedroom. I started with the aqua blue on the ceiling, the bed, a French reproduction(300$ at JCpenney.com). Then the chairs(Jc penney.com). Then the bedding, clearance at Walmart. The pillows, at Target. I bought the picture in a thrift store 8 years ago, the frame was Burgundy, i spray painted it gold. Surprise! it goes in my room. I guess, if you go with things and colors you love, you will find the use. The screen is from my husband grand-mother. his grand-pa got it in China when he was a soldier. It was a wedding gift for grand-ma. When grand-ma passed away, my husband's Dad gave it to me. It made me cry. So this is my favorite piece in the room. The colors are Aqua blue, chocolate brown, white, gold and off white.
This is the side table on the other side of the bed where you can't see it in the picture above. I wanted to recall wood tones. Love the painted pieces.
This is my side table lamp. I like to bring a little sparkle in bedrooms.
Hard wood floors are a good investment. It adds value to your house and i SO love it!
The ceilings are Aqua blue.
The paneling is a plus for a Parisian or Paris Apartment style. This is real paneling but you can achieve a good result with molding and trims only.
My house has a lot of white trims and paneling with colored ceilings. It makes the house flow, from room to room the same qualities are found. The Aqua ceiling is found in the whole house except for the kids bedrooms.
