Black Accent Wall

Scripted Sign

Words are powerful, whether they are read or heard. The kind of words you keep around you influence the way you behave and react to situations. A scripted sign is a good opportunity to highlight a word or statement you want yourself and your partner to remember for a long time. It can be a word of affirmation, your favorite quote from a book or movie, a line from a song, or even a promise you both made to each other. It is functional and can also be aesthetic. Get the words scripted in cursive for calligraphy.

For a couple’s room, you want both parties to feel a sense of belonging and that can be seen in the color palette you choose.

Navy and blush is one representative color scheme. In any room they are used, it turns out beautiful and looks modern.

Play Around with Patterns & Textures

You’ve already brought two separate lives together when you became a couple, and now you have to bring your personalities into your space. Don’t shy away from mixing patterns when you’re designing your bedroom! You don’t have to stick to only one or two colors in a room or stick to only having a subtle floral pattern throughout all your linens and accessories. Mix and match to your heart’s content. While mixing patterns, you can also add in layers of throw blankets or multi-textured pillows.
