A Coastal Bedroom

The bedrooms here in South Charlotte aren’t this contemporary but you still can get a clean, coastal look if you choose the right colors.

This bedroom from the Behr Color Center shows some poor color choices. Are these colors really wrong? No, not 100% wrong but certainly not 100% right either.

Can you use gold and purple together? Sure, you can make it work but think about your color choices BEFORE you commit to painting your room.

Purple is still a trending color now and it’s a great choice for a bedroom. As a Color Specialist in Charlotte I’ve chosen purple for a master bedroom several times – but – it was the RIGHT purple. I know that sounds odd but trust me, using purple in your room can look like Disney World or a relaxing retreat for an adult, not a fairly princess.

Here are some purples to consider for your master bedroom. I like the last one, Foxgloves. If you’re hesitant to use purple in your room, use it with a soft green. It’ll look like a boutique of lilacs!

Ok – back to the photo. The other thing I don’t like about how the colors are painted in the picture is balance or lack of it. Doesn’t if feel like the room is off balance? That’s because the darker or more prominent color is on the top. Is it an odd placement of color or are the colors just too odd for comfort? Maybe both. Here’s how to get that coastal feel we were talking about in conjunction with some great color choices.

Love this!!! Don’t you? It’s soft, balanced and just blends well with the room. Again in the same Behr room as above, I’v just replaced the colors with a soft blue and creamy beige. The more prominent color, the blue, is on the bottom and the soft cream is everywhere else – even on the ceiling. Now, other than the strange bed on the floor, doesn’t this bedroom look better?
