So I bought this duvet on sale from West Elm... I very rarely buy things online. Go ahead and call me "old school," but this purchase has reminded me why. The washed out gold [pictured below] looked mustard, (mustard!), in the picture on the website.
As I'm sure you know by now, I love mustard. So when I saw it, I was sold.
But it's far from mustard.
In it's defense, it is pretty, and subtle, and slightly earthy, (all good things) but it isn't bold (AKA It's not very 'Meganville.') I love dressing my home in drama with loud colors and prints, chunky photo frames, distinct textures...etc. Overall, I like the duvet but somehow because it's not bright and bold, I'm at a loss. It looks good in our room, yet to me it is bland.
Nothing about it screams anything to me. Now that's a problem.
It is my habit to pick something bold for each room and usually, the rest of my inspiration flows easily from that one piece. My living room curtains are a prime example.
This duvet dilemma is an odd one for me, considering my love for color and that I normally know just how I want things to look. Therefore, this is my plea...
Help me, help this room, to find it's voice.
Here's what you need to know/see before offering your ideas...
Wall Color: Golden Bronze
Wall Color: Graceful Gray
Trim Color: Cream
Our bed is placed at an angle into the corner with a backdrop of one gray wall and one bronze wall. We're currently headboard-less, but don't mind that, I foresee beautiful updates soon to come.
I think this green armoire will be finding its way into another corner of our bedroom...
Other things going on in our room...
Also, I plan to cut up and re-purpose my favorite cami. It's gotten tired but I can't bear to throw it out, so I'm going to give it a second life. Perhaps I'll use it to embellish a pillow, or a pellet board/picture wall hanging...maybe both!
What color will best transform our bedroom
from blah to bold?
My best thought thus far: Fuchsia.
I want to hear your ideas! I know many of you who read my blog and never, ever, ever comment...Just this once, won't you leave me some comment love? :)
