Decorating & Furniture/Colour co-ordinating


Im about to decorate a large bedroom, his wardrobes are Ash, mine are Oak, new bedding I have just bought is gold and black with a violet/purple throw, the carpet is gold (can't afford to replace), I intend to paint a purple rectangular area behind the bed head outlined in black ribbon in order to bring the colours together, what colour could I paint the rest of the room to co-ordinate it propery, the room needs to feel luxurious and not cold.

Your color combinations are a bit off-beat, but if you like them that's all that matters.  Since you're trying to combine colors, you may want to paint the walls the same color as the carpet.  That makes the color look intentional, and gold shades are warm.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
