Alek's Retro Paradise Bedroom

Alek's Retro Paradise Bedroom

Name: Alek
Location: Chattanooga, Tennessee
Type of Home: single family home

Color Inspiration: While I was growing up it seemed like almost everyone I knew, family included, always had those plain white walls with beige and neutral accents, and I always swore that when I had a house of my own that I was going to paint every room a bright and different color. In this room the Marimekko bedspread was my very first purchase for the house I just bought recently, and the rest of the room and the color choices seemed to evolve around it.

Give Alek a THUMBS UP if you think this room belongs in the finals!

Colors Used: Wall color: Teal Zeal Behr Primer Paint Plus, Marimekko Bedspread, The orange picture is 70's wallpaper from a friends basement

Color Tip: Don't be afraid to use color just because your afraid you won't like it. Most of the time once you get the color on the wall, and you've put the room back together, you like it a whole lot more than when you were looking at it on the color square or in the can. If you trust your gut instinct most of the time you end up happy with it, and if you don't you can always paint it again.
