Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead book cover

My master bedroom is currently a blank slate, or a beige slate, to be more exact.  It’s that shade of blah most frequently found in hotel rooms and apartment complexes.  The neutral color is very tranquil–good for sleeping–and goes well with just about everything.

But we can do better.  Here are my initial ideas for moving in a slightly more colorful direction.  (NOTE: These are all things I really like.  There is no advertising or sponsored content on this site.)

1. A watercolor that combines the beige and gray I love so much with a touch of color.  This one is Andre’ Foreman’s Jade Elephant from E&S Gallery.

2. A pendant shade chandelier to add light and texture over head.  This one is the Mod Pendant Shade Chandelier from Shades of Light.

3. A bold, abstract rug to keep things cozy like this Surya Signature Collection pick from Rug Studio.

4. An upholstered, tufted headboard makes a statement.  I spied this Bernhardt Jordan Button-Tufted Wing Bed in the window of Ruth & Ollie in Richmond and have to have it.

5. A pop of color in the form of a Lulu & Georgia Wild & Free Pillow in Ruby Red.

6. A shiny bench for when sitting, not sleeping, is in order. This one is Ethan Allen’s Xanadu Bench.
