Will this rustic black bedroom set work in my bedroom?
Stef
January 25, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I have attached 4 pics of my unfurnished master bedroom. I found a casual pine bedroom set that I can get in a distressed back grouping (see the furniture mfg. pic I have attached) that has a pretty upholstered bed. The set I am looking at is not the highest of quality, but I have 2 crazy dogs and prefer not to spend the money on more expensive furniture.


What do you think, would the black grouping look nice in my bedroom? Keep in mind everything currently in the room (drapes included would be replaced)

Thanks in advance for you help!!

The bed will look very good under your bedroom window. I like the how your rectangular window will look with the rectangular shaped headboard below. Not usually fond of sets, but it should suit your room quite nicely.

Yes I would work. Don't do all matching/black. Bet they offer accent color for bed side tables. Don't need bedside tables to match. One can be round table. The other cabinet style. Sets are a big no no in design world.

I am afraid because I have never had black furniture, but I really, really like the black with the upholstered. I am hoping to find neat swing arm wall sconces for next to the bed because I really am not a big fan of table lamps. I also want to find a comfy curl up chair for the room as I read a lot in there and don't want to be in the bed.

I am a big fan of woodsy type décor but NOT log cabin stuff. I guess nature but in abstract? Does that make sense?

Mark, with the dogs I am steering clear of rugs because of dog hair. I have a really wonderful robotic vacuum called the Neato xv 21. It does a great job of getting under the bed each day, and I think an area rug would impede it. Also our floors are all tile, we have radiant in floor heat and area rugs tend to trap the heat.

I am not a designer just a lowly homeowner but the only thing I would worry about is if it will clash with your baseboards and doors and would you be willing to change that. As Mark stated do you have any idea on rugs.

Our floor are tile and definitely have a lot of color variation in them from light to dark. I am thinking the black (not solid mat, but rustic distressed with some lighter pine showing through in spots) would be OK?

Often it's more interesting to not get a whole bedroom set where all the furniture matches. Get a bed and add interesting pieces to end up with a look that isn't like a sample room in a furniture store.

Here's a master bedroom with similar layout to yours, you may find inspiration here, e.g. nice swing arm reading lamps. If you re-paint, please also paint the ceiling same as your walls ... or, maybe just put a coat of the existing paint on the ceiling, would have a huge impact.

I really like the colors the room is now. unfortunately the pics I have posted don't relay the richness of the colors. Three of the walls actually have a slightly green tint to them. I am thinking of a rust colored bed spread and a rust colored chair maybe or maybe a green like a sage, but not really sage. Not sure how to describe it.

Sherwin Williams Old World Gold is my accent wall color (Wall that the transom window is on) and the other three walls are Blair Gold. Cant remember if it is Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore.

The group that I am showing is a very inexpensive bedroom set made by a company called Progressive Furniture. With our dogs I am just not willing to spend too much because they are off and on the bed constantly and play pretty rough.

I once decorated around my husband's taste, but then he died, and I realized he didn't really care what I did with the bedding, as long as he was warm at night. So after 37 years of marriage, I please myself.

Then this would be my recommendation. Most return is 30 days so I would keep looking for a bit and then buy when the furniture is ready to be delivered then get it. Overstock probably will not run out anytime soon. I did that and once the furniture and bed was in place ended up the comforter was not what I thought it would look like but by then it was too late to return.
