It is white and blue that traditionally ushers in the magic of sun sand and surf into your bedroom. But go down a different route this summer and replace the white in that equation with far more exciting shades of gray. Apart from giving your nautical or coastal style bedroom a fresh new look replacing white with gray gives you greater decorating freedom and a chance to try out newer shades of blue. In fact you can fill the backdrop with light gray and maybe even a hint of white and use pops of teal turquoise or periwinkle for greater visual impact. From bedding and drapes to a complete bedroom furniture set in blue a gray background lets you switch between hues with ease.
Gray and pink allow you to experiment with a wide range of styles and themes but you might struggle with a few like eclectic bohemian or Victorian with this color duo. Since most homeowners do not really opt for such eccentric styles while planning for a nursery this cool pair finds space in most nurseries across the globe. Combining gray and pink with pops of orange coral or even red is a fun alternative that adds another bright color to the room without taking away from the primary color scheme. Remember that it is the décor you choose and the lighting that shape the style of the nursery more than just the color palette.
Lighting in the small bedroom involves creating different layers of illumination with each one complementing the other. Even though recessed lights set the mood and overall ambiance of the room bring in small sconces or even slim floor lamps for that lovely bedside lighting. If you are a booklover then flexible and slim sconce lights are indeed a practical choice. Others can go down the route of bedside pendant lighting that saves spaces and brings incandescent beauty to the modern bedroom.
