A Room of One’s Own, Take II

Further to Wednesday’s post, here is an inspiration board I created for the teenager who has chosen turquoise as her colour for her room. This one is especially tricky– turquoise can be really muddy and dark. Luckily, her room is north-facing, so the cool light will be lovely with shades of aqua and turquoise.

Once again, I recommend getting the colour from bed linens and accessories, rather than the walls. With white walls, this colour scheme will make for a very soothing, calming sleeping space.

3 – a wrought iron bed is perfect in a girl’s room
4 – a pop of the chosen shade in a low dresser (which could also serve as a bedside table!)
5 – pretty sheets
6 – I like a pendant suspended next to the bed as a bedside lamp. How cute would this one look, floating above that bright dresser?
7 – a patterned rug
8 – boho-inspired duvet and shams– don’t be afraid to mix patterns for a fresh, modern look.

Happy weekend, everyone!
(Enjoy your May 2-4, my fellow Canucks!)
