Rose and Gold Master Bedroom

rose and gold master bedroom


I got to thinking yesterday that while bright colors are always right up my alley, I’m really loving gold paired with just about any paler color these days. That’s right. Move over, chevron.

I’m seeing a lot of coral pieces popping up in stores lately, and that’s one idea I just love. (I’m a water sign. What can I say?)
Beach houses and condos have forever utilized pastels, which are most definitely not my thing. I like the use of these bright pops of color to turn up the volume on the “typical” beachy style. What do you think?
Wherever this is, I want to go there.
