Color Palette: Gray & Gold

Gray bedroom with accents of gold and spa

This cool tones of this bedroom are warmed up by accents of gold and creamy whites. With just a few accents of spa, this bedroom is definitely one we wouldn’t mind catching some zzz’s.

We started with Benjamin Moore’s Half Moon Crest on the wall as a neutral background. Then, we brought in warmer shades of beige (with a Burlap Camden Headboard and Catherine Rug), white, and finally gold! The collection of Geoffrey Convex Mirrors over the bed creates a dramatic focal point in this bedroom, plus it elevates this space to a more glamorous note.

A gold Claire Chandelier brings a feminine element to this space, as does our Paris Mist Art which has gold hues in it as well.

This collection of colors, fabrics, and furniture pieces could work in any room in your home. Where would you use it?

    I like the room, it’s so close to the color that I plan on putting in my family room. Grey and light yellow.

    I love the room BUT… I would not have put the bed next to the window. Why limit your space around it???? Trade places with the desk and all of the accessories and put the bed where the desk is!!!
