Decorating & Furniture/Red Bedroom


I was wodering if you could suggest some good decorating ideas for a bedroom? I'm paint my bedroom red and i was going for a modern roman feel. Frist off what color of comferter would you suggest? i was think a gold with bits of marron to accect. I'm also thinking of adding a rug to go under the bed (until we get a new bed frame). I was thinking of a grey and black rug but i'm not sure if that will suite the room. Also would you suggest a lillt waterfall as decore? I think it will give it a earthy feel but i'm not sure if its good for a bedroom or with the idea i'm going with.
Any suggestions would be wonderful.

Hi Stacy,

A gold comforter would be a good match. I like the idea of pulling the red/maroon into it as an accent color. You could also do that with throw pillows and curtains. I'm not sure I would like the grey with the black in the rug. I think gold or red would be better. I love the idea of the waterfall. It decorating we try to address all the senses. Sounds like you're on the right track.

Yours for a luxe life,
