I take my colors and prints very seriously, and that's why I like to keep them out of the bedroom.
A neutral bedroom has always been a place of sanctuary for me-- somewhere to cleanse my visual palate, and start fresh with each morning's breath.
A bed, like the Toby bed from Eternity Modern, is the foundation of our bedroom. It sets the tone and allows for an array of neutral linens, accent throws, and art to adorn it and change by season. If the bed is the trunk of the tree, the accents are the leaves, changing color, and sometimes falling and starting fresh with each go around the sun.
These "leaves", like... literally... live plants (hay!), art, photo frames, art books, throw blankets, accent pillows, and bed linens can change with your mood.
Home decorating doesn't have to be so final. Can't it be more like fashion? Where you have a closet and change around your look with your mood of the moment? Give it a try... you just may love the idea.
