Sam’s dilemma

Posted on Thu, 14 Aug 2008 by KiM

Sam emailed us with the following predicament: “I have a dilemma. I just got new curtains for my bedroom whose pattern consists of gold and navy blue. I therefore want to change the design of my room to match (right now I have a green bed frame, white table, lavender carpet… big mess). However, seeing as my bedroom is in the basement and therefore has small dingy windows with limited natural light, I don’t want to fill the room up with dark colours to match the curtains. So I was wondering if you would succeed where I have failed in finding inspiring images of bright rooms with touches of gold and navy. It is not a current or popular colour combination, but a pretty one nonetheless, if you ask me. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated!” It was a little tough Sam, but here are some photos for you that have some navy and a little bit of gold/yellow (ok, most do), to inspire your bedroom redo.

I’m so into blue at the moment. With yellow, with green. Particularly if it’s navy. Great pics Kim.

Oh wow!! Thank you SO MUCH Kim, these pics are so inspiring!! I know just what I want to do with my room now, the right balance of blues and yellows/golds. You are too fabulous for words my dear, it is SO nice and thoughtful of you to take the time to help out a reader with limited creativity 😉
Many thanks again for taking the time to help me out!

You’re welcome Sam. Glad I could help. Do send us a photo when your room is done. We’d love to see it.
