Before & After: Ongoing Colorful Bedroom Transformation

Before & After: Ongoing Colorful Bedroom Transformation

Colleen Quinn
Oct 29, 2010

This month is all about color and adding vibrancy to the home. The reality though is that not all colors are created equal, and not all colors work for every space or person. This bedroom is a perfect example of how different colors can change the mood and feel of the same room though three different iterations.

This bedroom was blue when Meg first moved it, but the color and the border just didn't suit her needs. The second picture features her first transformation with a soothing green paint (Behr's Asparagus) setting the tone for a relaxing haven. The dark furniture and pops of turquoise and red in the bedding and artwork are a great contrast to the green walls and white and green duvet.

Eventually Meg decided to make another change to her room to better reflect her personality. The soft blue paint (Behr's Tidal Pools) sets a completely different tone that the previous green, a more sophisticated tone that is echoed by the new bedding. The addition of Meg's own artwork over the bed ties together the new nature-inspired theme.

Same room, three different colors — which do you prefer?
