Good Questions: Needs Creativity in the Bedroom?

(We'll answer any question, even if it's not to us. We get stuff for Candice all the time and can't figure out why.)

Dear Candice Olsen,

I really enjoy your show and am amazed at your creativity! I need your creative help in the bedroom with the furniture!!! I have been married for 34 years. We have had the same bedroom furniture for the 34 years. I need to change the furniture, not the husband! Do you have any suggestions of what can be done to the furniture to change the looks?

Thanks, Dee B.

Dear Dee,

While we don't know how far you want to go, the problem here is a predominance of the BEIGE BLAHS. You have no variety in your color palette and no good bright and dark colors to play off of one another. You want color and you want contrast.

The first thing we would do is have some fun by painting your furniture a real nice high gloss white, paint the walls a warm off-white color with either lavender, yellow or rose in it and get some eye popping pillows for the bed. The bedspread and the rugs would be the next to go as they are too muted.

Really, what you want to do is start your own style tray of ideas by looking at magazines and collecting pictures in one place. Once you have assembled a good sampling, we would look hard at the pics, choose your favoritie elements and start to reproduce them in your bedroom. And think MODERN as you do this. It's fun!

Anyone else??
