Decorating & Furniture/Matching bedding with a bed


My boyfriend and I are moving into our first place, and we're starting fresh with everything. We found this beautiful deep cherry wood sleigh bed set that we love, but we are having trouble finding a color scheme that will compliment it. We don't particularly want to go with just a gold bedspread or one with red in it. I love blues, greens, and browns. Is there something you can suggest that would compliment cherry wood?

I think I would go with blue Lindsey of the colors you mention.

Blue and white is a lovely, fresh color scheme for a bedroom and would look fine with the cherry wood.

If you want to add a modern twist I suggest you then add in a few pieces - a couple of pillows, a soft rug - in an accent color like bright pink.

Kind regards
