Decorating & Furniture/Decrorating a Guest Bedroom


Bedroom is 11x12 facing the southeast. The walls are a Linen White with a light gold trim, and light beige carpet. I bought a Comforter-navy,red and white Plaid,(Tommy Hilfinger.)The furniture is Cherry. I haven't bought the bed skirt or draperies. The theme is toward Ships and navy knots,have two pictures of navy knots. I was thinking about changing the walls to a light gray and trim(?) and the bed skirt either Navy or Red, and bright yellow pillows on the bed. Need your thoughts on this room? Like the Wall Color and trim color and the bed skirt and the draperies. Since the room is not large the wall color has to be just right. I am in the direction of having the bedroom in the theme of the Navy. Reason: Grandson is going to the  "USA Navy Academy."
Appreciate any helpful information you can give me to pull this Bedroom together. Thanks.

Paint the walls taupe.  My favorite is Glidden's Toasty Grey.  Keep the trim white (or if it's now gold, that's ok).  Purchase the bed skirt in Navy.  To the bright yellow pillows, toss one navy one (same color as the bed skirt.)

You'll be in business.

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!
