The assignment for Day 8 of the Style Cure was to choose a paint color and a decor pairing. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to paint my current apartment, so I decided to bring in some color by upholstering a headboard in deep blue to keep with the soothing cool tones already in the bedroom.

For my decor pairing I've decided to create some much needed bedside storage by bringing in some nightstands. Because we prefer a more eclectic look and tend to avoid anything too symmetrical, we decide to go for a mismatched pair with something that ties them together, either a similar shape and different finishes or different forms with a similar finish.
