Updated Traditional Bedroom

An unexpected color palette of orange and grey brings new life to a traditionally architectural detailed bedroom. The mixture of contemporary X metal lamps, orange wall coverings, the oriental rug and Hollywood Regency influenced headboard works cohesively together with visual interests spread evenly throughout the room.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Don't be afraid to combine grey with other colors to alter the mood of the space. Grey can really enhance bright colors especially when those colors are used in dramatic ways like as paint on the walls of a big room. The grey softens the impact of the bold color and creates an interesting visual appeal.
Timothy De Clue Design L.L.C added this to Going bold with Patterns...
This bedroom takes a bold color and mixes it with a bold pattern making quite a statement...
Heat up the bedroom. In the tantric and yogic traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism, orange represents the sacral chakra, which supplies energy for enjoyment of life and sexuality, and it's used to balance those areas.While it's commonly believed to be an energizing color, and maybe not an ideal choice for a bedroom, orange works beautifully here with one of my favorite neutrals — gray. Consider using orange on a single feature wall behind your bed if you are worried it will keep you awake at night.

Yatak odalarını ısıtın!Hindu ve Budist geleneklerde turuncu sakral çakrayı tanımlar,hayattan zevk alma enerjisini ve aşkı temsil eder ve bu alanlarda dengeyi getirmek için kullanılır. Aslında enerji veren bir renk olarak yatak odalarında kullanılması ideal bulunmasa da gri gibi bir doğal tonla kullanarak enerjisini düşürmesini sağlayabilirsiniz.
