Online Coral & Aqua Bedroom Design

October 8, 2014

[pinterest]I recently completed an online design plan for Carol on a new bedroom design that she said I could share. She is recently divorced and was looking for a beautiful and feminine bedroom to come home to.

I found a coral fabric that we used as a starting point for the room:

So pretty! Carol wanted white bedding, so she is going to use this fabric as a duvet folded at the bottom of bed and possibly even window panels.

She already has a bedroom set that we incorporated in our plan:

I gave her a couple different wall colors to think about and she decided to go with Benjamin Moore Simply White:

Fabric for pillows on bed and on new white chair:

A beautiful new mirror for over the dresser:

And here is Carol’s new bedroom design board:

We love it! Coral and aqua is such a pretty color combination. I also suggested finding an old dresser that she could paint in a soft aqua color. Carol promised to send after photos which I will be sure to share with you!

I know how much you all love looking at the Pottery Barn rooms painted with Ben Moore, so I wanted to share these painted rooms found in West Elm:

The colors from West Elm are not as “everyday popular” as the colors used at Pottery Barn.  Both companies believe in the clean and simple look, but I think West Elm has an edgier, tougher look.  These colors work well with their darker woods and other styles found in their designs.  No pastels at West Elm!  There is a total of 47 paint colors in the collection. West Elm also does not have their colors broken down into seasons as Pottery Barn does.

The West Elm colors are definitely stronger and more intense than the Pottery Barn colors.

If you wanted to purchase the Ben paint colors sold through West Elm’s website, they are $35.95 a gallon. At Pottery Barn, Aura paint gallons are sold for $63.99 online.  They both are great paints with low odor and low VOC. The difference is that the Aura paint is the best of the best.   If you would like to read more about the paint differences, read here.
