Master Bedroom Update

I need help updating my bedroom. I like traditional, color and a bit of cottage. I can't figure out what to do. I also like blues, greens and orange.

I like your sandy wall colour.

Start w/ new bedding. I don't know if there is a Steinmart or a Bed, Bath & Beyond in your area, but they really have some nice-looking "bed in a bag" combos that are lovely & often they have coordinating accessories.

If you can afford it, recover thechair in a coordinating fabric & buy an ottomon & upholster to match. If not, slipcover it.

If you really want cottage, consider painting the dressers - white, or a coordinating color if you're feeling bold. Or even 2 different colors. On the taller dresser, you could do a milk finish on the wood-faced drawers & regular paint over the black. Then distress the edges. I can't tell what's going on with the hardware, but they seem to be a little off - are they oxidizing?. Need to replace missing knobs. Maybe replace all hardware or spraypaint existing with Krylon bronze?

Please remove the fake flower arrangement on the wall. Raise the painting above the bed about 5 inches. Switch out the shade on the small lamp with a lighter color.
