My former bedroom was painted a deep teal green-blue (SW Newburgh Green) and had only one bay window. I covered part of the adjacent wall with interestingly shaped vintage and new mirrors with hand-carved gilt frames and it really bounced the light around and looked ravishing against the deep teal.

I used gold in my hand-painted wall, my bedside tables, and my closet doors, a headboard I made, chairs I recovered and my bedspread.
