Artwork is as important as furniture in bringing color balance to a room. 2 good color resources: 1. C2 paints are incredible and the large swatches allow you to try the color in different parts of the room in different lighting. 2. Estate sales! Our bedspread is a 60's Vera that we purchased for $3.00! The photo over the bed is from an estate, and the pillow on the bed is made of vintage bowling patches, another estate sale find.
