Sweet Dreams

Sweet summer dreams are to be had in these gorgeous bedrooms. With the project at the moment we have four  bedrooms to design and coordinate the colors of walls, linens, rugs, furniture, lighting, art work and mirrors. One of the most important aspects of picking colors for bedrooms, is that the house have a flow and rooms not be fighting each other. The hugely important factor in this house and any house we work in is the light. Is the room facing north, south,east or west? It is amazing to see how light can affect a color. We are working with a lot of yellows and creams in this project in an attempt to make rooms that face east and north cheery and sunny,something that can be difficult in northern New England. Now, the only problem with the colors we pick for the rooms facing north and east, if used in rooms that face south and west, the colors become way too strong and bold. Some of the colors we have picked so far are Hawthorne yellow HC-4 Benjamin Moore which is a very strong yellow that may need to be toned down. For the hallway which is dark and leads into the kitchen we are thinking colors like calming cream oc-105 and milky way oc-110. One of the upstairs bedrooms that faces east, we're considering a soft lovely lavender. Maybe a grass cloth wallpaper in the downstairs master with some hints of orange. This project is a challenge. Aren't they all, but oh so fun!

All of these rooms make me long for a New England vacation, especially the summer porch (first image)!

As someone who is operating on very little sleep after a night of storms, all of these photos look so inviting. If I could climb into one right now, I would do it in a heartbeat!

Gorgeous spaces, the first nook overlooking the water is amazing! I could definitely curl up with a good book and read here for hours.
