Good Question: Color Scheme

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I’ve decided to use this piece of art as inspiration to decorate my master bedroom. What color do you think I should paint the walls? What color would be best for bedding and window coverings?

Hey Shelly–

Your question comes just in time since all we can seem to do around here is think about color. Not only is it Color Month and the Fall Colors Contest but we’re also talking color this week in the Fall Cure.

To quote our own, the AT book states: Whenever you choose one thing that you love and use its colors as a guide, everything will work together nicely”.

So you’re halfway there. Next: Although bedrooms are classically ‘cool’ to promote peace and rest, only you can decide between a warm-toned or cool-toned room. You can use the warmer red or the cooler blue/gray tones from the painting. And once that’s done you can have fun choosing accessories in the colors that are left over!

What do you guys think?
