Taupe inspired decorating plan just in time to add to your decorating wish list this Fall!
Friday’s question: How can I decorate a bedroom around the taupe paint color Poised Taupe, Sherwin-Williams color of the year for 2017? Well, here’s a design plan just for you!
So, I always say “begin with your fabric choices first” and “choose your paint color last”. But there are times when clients have already painted a room their favorite color … and guess what??? Yup, we “make it work”!
So, here’s the plan, for our taupe inspired bedroom!
Because we wanted to bring in color and pattern, this Ikat print is perfect! With it’s multi-faceted taupe, gray, ivory and teal Ikat drapery fabric, Pattern Teddy/Color Ocean from IntentionalDesigns.com/Shop, we’ve added a vibrant teal accent color to the room.
Then, relaxed bedding in a layered look with ivory & taupe coverlettes from IntentionalDesigns.com/Shop, Luna Bedding Collection.
Plus the perfect accent pillows from IntentionalDesigns.com/Shop, Pattern Bear/Color Ocean
And there you have it, a taupe inspired bedroom!
My Simple Real Life Truth ~
So yes, sometimes I work in reverse! In a perfect world you may be able to start from scratch, but most of the time in design we’re working with fixed paint colors, fabrics or furnishings. And, it’s our job to make it work so the space is cohesive, comfortable and inviting for our client. However, you can see that even though we had a fixed paint color I still referenced the fabric for a color palette. Which brings all the other paint & accent pieces together.
Happy Friday! Hope you have a fun weekend! ~ Nancy
