A Dream Bedroom

I absolutely LOVE this bedroom. It's the perfect combination of textures, color and comfort. The velvet pillows combined with the Sferra bedding creates a sophisticated look without being too fuddy-duddy. The coarseness of only ONE wall being painted, behind the bed, with faux gold tile makes the room pop-and one to remember! In fact, I've been thinking about this room since the first time I saw it when this article was published. 

Neutral colors are soothing, but can sometimes be dull. I think that the key to pulling off the neutral look is adding a splash of bold, vivid colors like bright pink, orange, green, purple and blue. Maybe you can do this in the rug, accessories, lamps or curtains.

The great part about it is that everything in the room can be recreated on a budget! You can find wonderful Sferra bedding at Tuesday Morning for more than 50% off the original price! Wrought iron beds, such as this, are typically much more affordable than the traditional four-poster wooden beds.

Take a look at the rest of the Montecito, California home:

**The wall pattern, painted by decorative artist Peter Bolton, is a play on Spanish tiles, and the iron four-poster was inspired by 18th-century Andalusian country manor beds. Gauffraged velvet pillows, table, and curtain fabrics by Sabina Fay Braxton. Celeste bedding by Sferra. Khotan carpet, Mansour Rugs.
