Dark Bedroom + Curtains!



I spent a good amount of time over the last two days getting the curtains done for the bedroom and it's finally starting to come together and at least is a serene place to rest my weary unpacking eyes!





The walls in the bedroom are a dark grey (Kendall Charcoal From Benjamin Moore in the flat Aura Finish) and the curtains are just from Ikea. I wanted to keep the bedroom dark and simple (see my inspiration right here).




I'd like to get a rug to put towards the bottom of the bed and we still haven't figured out night stands (um, yeah, that's a moving box I'm using). I love that we get so much sun in here during the day and that we can see the neighbor's orange tree from bed!


UPDATE: Here's a before picture (oops, forgot it the first time)!

Love how crisp and clean the dark grey looks with the white. Very peaceful! Do you mind me asking the color on the wall?

Thanks!

I love it! The walls may be dark, but it looks like the room still gets tons of light! The curtains look great, too!

Just thought I'd pass along also that I'm hosting a pillow giveaway (which may give you some options for your new bedroom), so if you'd like to enter, just head to the giveaway post at my blog.

laure said...

thanks everyone! I implore you all to paint your bedrooms dark (if they get sun) because it is so soft and soothing you want to fold into it. I looked up the color we used and it's kendall charcoal by Ben Moore. It's flat finish. It's amazing!

looks beautiful, laure. :)

Love it. And I really love the pillow in the context of the rest of the room.

Love that gray! and all the white...oh I've been dying to paint our bedroom dark recently.

The lamp? Asymmetric? Awesome!

michèle said...

I really like the contrast between the dark elegant walls and the funky retro cushion - great color & style combo.

babs said...

I LOVE the gray! I was thinking about gray for our new master suite...but then I thought maybe something warmer. But, after seeing these pictures...aaahhh!

laure said...

thanks everyone! Did I mention that E also got us electric fitted sheets so that getting into bed is like getting into a bath. it's ridiculous.

Tess said...

I love the wall color. It looks so calm, and peaceful. I wish I could see an orange tree from my bed! They don't grow in New York, oh well.

Wow, it's beautiful. Laure, may I ask what kind of camera you took these photos with? Your photos are wonderful.

Great subject. I have been playing around with the idea of the comment structure recently.
I think now Internet user are increasing day by day so company are preferring online marketing now.
I think that Marketing Online is still the best choice, cause we have high ROI´s with less investments, especially with SEO.
Thanks.

I love how the curtains made the whole room so nice and clean. Really did a great job!

Curtains can change a light and funky room into a sophisticated space that will fit your personality. Choose curtains that are easy to maintain. Dry cleaning may add up to your expenses. You may opt for curtains for home decoration that are easy to clean.

If you are decorating or renovating your property, curtains are normally a single of your first items to become changed. New curtains can rapidly alter the search and feel on the space, but in advance of you select new bedroom curtains you must make certain that they're the best ones. They must be chosen with quite a few criteria in mind.
