Expect the Unexpected
Once again we have found another room that manages to make pink look all grown up...we just might be starting to like this colour! Plus this room featured in Verandah House feels sophisticated AND fun at the same time. It’s a great look, how do they pull it off?
Baby pink on the walls was a brave choice, and they have counterbalanced it with the strongest of colour palettes: dark brown, gold, leaf green and red. This combination is not the least bit trendy which is really refreshing.
The stylistic choices in this room are super eclectic, traditional lamps and bedsides are paired with modern art and a bohemian paper lantern. It is obviously a room full of things that are loved which makes it feel authentic.
Notice the bed has a very low bed head to keep the pillows off the wall and then that great piece of art acts like a really grand headboard.
I love how the lamps are not centred on the bedsides, they are near the bed which is just where you want them and little collection of books fill the rest f the space, keeps it casual and inviting.
How great are these accent cushions? Classic white plus, a traditional French floral, plus a modern black and white spot! Unexpected and fun.
