French Quarter Pied-a-TerreEclectic Bedroom, New Orleans

What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Mellow yellow. Darker colors tend to make a space feel smaller and therefore cozier, but you can get a cozy vibe with lighter colors too. Soft yellow hues are warm and inviting without making the space seem too snug. In fact, a light, sunny hue such as this one helps make a room feel open. But the warmth of the color is definitely conducive to getting cozy.
This is perhaps the cheeriest master bedroom in New Orleans, with a gold palette that’s a breath of fresh air. After the beige wall-to-wall carpet was removed, restoring the 6-inch-wide plank cypress wood floors was quite a challenge for the flooring contractor, Killen says. However, the result speaks for itself. Wall paint: Goldtone OC-112, Benjamin Moore
