Spring Color Palette: Spa & Cream Bedroom

Spa and cream bedroom color palette

First and foremost, we believe a bedroom should be relaxing. This should be a space where you retreat, relax, and recover, so it’s important to make design choices that will help you achieve that relaxing feeling. For some people, that may mean a bright and cheery hue they love. Others, it may mean all white. For us, we just still can’t shake our love of spa. The perfect combination of gray, green, and blue, spa is our perfect color, so when designing the ultimate bedroom retreat, it was a no brainer.

For this bedroom, we put a slightly more modern twist on the space by using clean-lined furniture pieces (our Isabella Collection). We also stayed true to our color palette — everything is in either spa, cream, or a weathered wood finish. Having everything coordinate so perfectly makes the space feel serene and polished, perfect for when you want to relax.

A pair of our Mariette Table Lamps coordinate beautifully with this bedroom because of its simple but sculptural shape. This column shape has a more modern feel, which we really dig for this bedroom. For the overhead lighting, we used a Carriage House Chandelier in our Antique Silver finish. We love the way the shape of this chandelier echoes the trim pattern on our Isabella Collection.

For the final flourishes, we hung a pair of Memories Found Art over the bed. They work with our spa and cream color palette, and the silver frames complement our chandelier. And no room is complete without a couple of throw pillows. Here we used Savannah Burlap throw pillows in mineral.

    What is the quilt or coverlet used on this bed? I love this space and hope to do my master similar to this. Will the spa linen drapes work with this?
