Bed and Bath Furniture and Home Accents

Last week I wrote about my shopping trip for our blue master bedroom makeover, and today is the big reveal. After painting our deep navy walls white, we decided to spruce up the room with a gorgeous blue printed comforter set from HomeGoods, along with blue and blush accents. I have always had a color on the walls in our bedroom, but ever since we painted the room white, I am finding it so much easier to decorate the space.

Here is how my bedroom looked with the dark blue walls.

The white walls really change the look of the room.

My inspiration board showed how combining a few colorful elements, like pillows and a throw, can add pops of color while still keeping the space neutral and calm.

I decided to layer the blue medallion bedding with an existing ruffled duvet that I already had. The large white throw pillows helped create a layered look and add visual appeal to the bed.

The artwork from HomeGoods will also transition nicely into spring and summer. That’s the beauty of neutral walls and home accent items — you can usually add in seasonal home decor elements and change the look of a space with little effort.

The lamps are one of my favorite finds from HomeGoods. At first I thought the blue shades and blue bedding would be too “matchy matchy”, but I decided to give it a go.

The white pottery lamp is perfect because if I want to swap out the shade, the base will go with just about any pattern or colored lamp shade.

When I was shopping at HomeGoods for the bedding, I saw these amazing blue painted ceramic vases and decided that they would look fabulous on top of our high dresser. Aren’t they beautiful?

By choosing a few different pieces in varying heights and patterns, the collection creates a pretty vignette and helps soften the hard lines of the dresser.

If you look closely, you will notice that there are only four elements of color in the room: the two peach throw pillows, the throw blanket and the coral flowers on the night table. Very simple, very calming and, most importantly, husband approved.

The nice thing about this blue bedding is that you can change out the throw pillows and blanket and create an entirely different look. Orange, coral, fuchsia, lime green and yellow also go nicely with navy blue.

While my original blue walls were nice, I am loving the versatility of the white walls. The decorating possibilities are endless.
