I started to jump for joy when she asked for help. Here were my parameters:
1. They have this sage green comforter.
2. The room is a bit small- so they want a color that will lighten up the room.
3. I needed to create a whole look with a little money. I limited my accessories to flowers, throws and pillows.
4. Their bedroom furniture is dark brown.
Here they are- my first Style Boards:
Option #1: Light and Airy in Blue and Greens.
(A) Top Rt: Restoration Hardware Light Silver Sage- will totally lighten up the room.
(B) Bottom Lt: Restoration Hardware Blue Sage- for more of a pop.
Pillows from West Elm
Agni Pillow, $29.
Bengal Tiger, Pear, $34
Big Sur, $39
Flowers: whites and succulents.
This option really provides a punch of color, but lightens the whole space up with some airy and neutral accessories.
Option #2: Neutrals: Sage, brown and grays.
From Top Rt. To Bottom Left all Restoration Hardware:
(B) Spanish Moss
(D) Silver Sage
The top colors will bring a huge pop to the room while the light colors will add subtle contrast and light.
Pillows from West Elm.
Mountain Flower, $34
Bengal Tiger, Fig, $34
Embellished Leaf, $34
Option #3: Modern: Sage, purple and taupe.
(A) Top Lt: Martha Stewart Purple Agate. Softer, but still a bit silvery.
Option #4: Traditional: Sage and Reds.
Just in case she wanted to go traditional- I threw in the last option. Plus, I know that red is her favorite color.
After waiting on pins and needles, she told me that she LOVED all the options. While she was initially leaning towards purple, she was afraid that her BF wouldn't go for it- so I think she's going with choice No. 1.
I have to be honest- sage isn't usually in my color palette, so it took some thinking to put these boards together.
