A Little Rusty Orange in the Master Bdrm.

I love my dresser and headboard in the Master Bedroom that I redid here and here, and I am having so much fun playing with different color schemes.  I thought I would add just a touch of Rusty Orange with the Aqua.  I am using things I already had, and that makes it even more fun.

 A couple of rusty colored pillows added to the bed was enough, I am still learning the art of less and restraint.

 Another Orange pillow on the sofa spreads the color around the room.

 I didn't have but a couple of orange flowers, so I added an orange and brown plaid ribbon to the floral arrangement.

That's it and a whole different color scheme is created.  

It's so nice when all the basics are neutral, then you can use any color combo you want.  I have fun playing and switching things around.

  2. I love the color combo.It always feels good to change things around.

  3. Good Afternoon Marty, Oh I do love your headboard, it is gorgeous. I'm a little like you when it comes to cushions, I find it is hard to practice restraint, but you have managed it perfectly. Have a lovely day. Best Wishes Daphne
