The room was inspired by an IKEA bedspread my daughter fell in love with. We filled the rest of the room out with revitalized furniture and textiles from Goodwill.
Colors used in my room:
I used Martha Stewart Living's Grape Jelly Bean for the purple, Sharkey Gray for the light gray, and Cavern for the dark gray.
Tips for using color successfully:
When focusing on a bold color in a room, I like to edit out as many conflicting colors as possible by storing those items away. I turn books around on bookshelves or store them in color coordinating upright boxes to limit their visual impact.
