Working With an Oversized, Monster Bed?

Good Questions

Q: Hello! I am moving into a great 2 bedroom flat in London with all the bells and whistles a girl could need — except that my bedroom has the most obnoxiously oversized bed known to mankind in it. It's not too big for the room, but it's such a centerpiece and I'm terrified to decorate around it.

Sent by OlgaMy aesthetic is usually modern eclectic with soft jewel tone type colors... and, frankly, I can't imagine how it could work with this carved wooden monster in the room! The bed has been repositioned so it's in the middle between the built-in shelves and not against the window as in the picture. Also, the picture (?) hanging and that bedding is gone, gone, gone. HELP! I'm renting so painting the walls isn't really an option. :(! Anything you can suggest is very much welcome indeed!

Best regards, Olga

Editor: Wow — that is a lot of look! Who has suggestions for Olga?
