It is white and blue that traditionally ushers in the magic of sun, sand and surf into your bedroom. But go down a different route this summer and replace the white in that equation with far more exciting shades of gray. Apart from giving your nautical or coastal style bedroom a fresh, new look, replacing white with gray gives you greater decorating freedom and a chance to try out newer shades of blue. In fact, you can fill the backdrop with light gray and maybe even a hint of white and use pops of teal, turquoise or periwinkle for greater visual impact. From bedding and drapes to a complete bedroom furniture set in blue, a gray background lets you switch between hues with ease.
We always wish we had more space to work with when decorating our home or planning for a new one. For some reason, as a race we seem to be constantly short of both space and time! That aside, it does help when you can bring in décor that cuts back on the used square footage, multitasks or even disappears into the walls when not needed. In case of the bedroom it is often Murphy beds, loft beds and sliding closet doors that enhance its ergonomics and save space. But every little detail from the arrangement of the bed to lighting can turn that small bedroom into a seemingly spacious setting.
Darker shades of gray can also be used in small bedrooms to create a dashing and more masculine space. Once you go down this route, ensure that the rest of the room remains as uncluttered and neutral as possible with sparingly used blue accents. In the bedroom, everything from the pillows and bed sheets to drapes and vases can be used to add color and with changing trends you can even move away from blue and adopt a completely different color scheme.
