Yummy colors... accessorize the bedroom.

Rosy, coral, salmon ~ that's how I would describe these yummy fabrics that will be used for throw pillows on the bed in our bedroom. My sister gave me these scraps of fabric the other day which she never used and I immediately thought, bedroom pillows. I love the warm colors!

Our bed is covered with a cream colored quilted bedspread and shams (very neutral), and the walls in the bedroom are a light mocha color (also very neutral). The drapes are a terra cotta salmon color.

Soft yellow pillows on the bed and a mustard colored throw bring in a warm sunshine feeling. Standing in the one corner is a painted chest of drawers also in a mustard color.

The large dark mahogany armoire beside our mahogany sleigh bed brings in more warmth and on top is an old creamy yellow sewing box and a few antique crocks.

As you can see, I love warm colors and the new rosy, coral, salmon fabric will bring in a nice punch of color.

I think a bedroom should be a relaxing retreat at the end of the day with all your favorite colors surrounding you.

The new colours are lovely and will suit your bedroom very well. I also have a bedroom with white matelasse spread and coral curtains - great minds.....

Donna, your bedroom does look warm and relaxing. The pillows will be beautiful.

Our bedroom is very neutral, too. But, I can't get a decent photo in there. I have tried everything I can think of, but no good ones.
