A barely there grey with lots of warmth will give the same effect while just toning down the starkness a bit. The is BM Shoreline

What a beautiful room! Amy's wall color suggestion is super. I have one little suggestion. I'd like to see just a touch of the red color on the bed to see red three times. The rule of three works for me with color as well. Also, might I suggest small sconce wall lamps for lighting beside the bed?

Oh, all right Charmaine. I'll just sulk. I'm not as far west as you may think, but I'm way, way, way to the south.

I would like to see the “ladies” over the bed instead of on the long wall. They will make the headboard wall more important; right now I think their position makes the room look smaller.

Smaller perhaps, but the guest can lie in bed and look at them. That's cool.

Ha ha indianpatti I agree with the faux flowers the only reason why they there is because it gets so hot here in Dubai and real flowers die almost over night..but you right maybe I should rather remove them ..

You could spray paint curly sticks red and put in the vase instead. :)

Yes, the ladies need to be closer together and above the bed. If not there, then their centers should be 60" above the floor. Can't determine the size of the room, but would want the bed on the wider wall if space allows. Is it opposite the entry? I think I see a door to the outside in the mirror. Darzy's ruffle pillow and wall lamps are a good idea. Looks like the bedside table doors open the "wrong" way to my mind. If I wanted to access them from the bed I'd expect them to open away from the bed and swing toward the wall - easy switch out. They might look good in black. If they don't have a back on the open recess, you could tack one on and paint the inside of that niche red. You might not want that big a project though.

Lower slightly 4-5" and move to be 2" between.

I like the minimal look the white gives. Leave it. Good job.

I agree with Amy Cali. That gray color is perfect!! Your room is already pretty - can't wait to see how much more beautiful it will be when painted. Please be sure to add pics!!
