I’ve decided to start putting effort into my living space. I was originally going with sage green green and black as I’d been using my sisters sage green curtains. I was never successful in finding bedding to match that wasn’t too flowery for my taste.
My sister asked for the curtains back in any case so I gave them up and went shopping. My plan was grey curtains. I have 4 windows, two on the south side and I like 84 inch curtains. I ended up getting metallic silver ones, on the darker side somewhere closer to gun metal. They were on clearance and really good quality, thermal, light block. With 8 panels needed cost was a deciding factor.
I have a bedroom set minus a bed frame(bed is on a metal support now). The furniture is black, painted. On of the dressers is missing the hardware so I’m likely to get all new hardware to match whatever I end up with. My is black as well and matches the furniture.
The room has 2 doors, one for a closet both have 6 inch pine plank molding. There is also a old fireplace mantel(no longer a fire place, sheet rocked over), this is also pine plank. This woodwork is all stained classic oak so it looks dull brown.
The floor is 12 pine plank stained puritan pine. I have a grey carpet remnant/area rug under the middle of the room atm.
The walls and ceiling are a very textured plaster, like stucco. They are all white.
I’m thinking painting is in order but I have no idea what colors to go with. I think it makes sense to paint all the molding as natural wood doesn’t seem to fit. On the walls I could do some sort of two color design dry brushing the ridges on the plaster. I’d also want to choose a carpet remnant for the floor and bedding to match the room.
Overall I’d like to keep decor on a more masculine side.
Anyone have any thoughts on colors I should take a look at. With the dark furniture and curtains I’m trying to avoid picking anything else too dark and making it look like a dungeon.
