Light Accents in Dark Rooms

Last week a few of you encouraged me to consider sheer white curtains for my small and dark-colored guest bedroom. And I'm taking your advice to heart. In doing so, I've come across quite a few light accents in dark rooms:

While my little room doesn't have the space for much additional furniture and accessories, these inspiring images definitely have me leaning toward a white accent at the window treatments. Other places to lighten up a dark space:

  • bedding
  • ceiling
  • upholstery
  • furniture
  • pillows and other decorative accessories
  • rugs
