room of the day

The soft blues and creams in this bedroom by Tobi Fairley are so pretty and restful. It's a traditional space, but the graphic wallpaper, rug, and overscale floral give it a modern edge and elevate the subdued color palette. When you're working with a neutral, or monochromatic scheme, interest is created through layers of pattern and texture (notice the stubtle shine of the nailheads on the headboard, the frame and hardware?). Blue is a cool color so I love how she chose a wood chest - it really warms the space up. Have a pretty day!
