Color Palette for the Master Bedroom

I’m almost ready to start working on the poor neglected master bedroom. I surprised myself with the color palette I decided on: varying shades of blues and reds with a lot of white. How did I decide on this combination?

It started with a pair of D. Porthault shams that I bought in Paris this past summer. This is the pattern and it has a blue trim:

I had actually bought these for one of the guest rooms but decided they had to go in the master!

You may remember the walls are painted Benjamin Moore “Bunny Gray” (like the dining room) which has a light blue undertone. Here’s a picture of the paint going on before we moved in:

Here’s one more red and blue bedroom for inspiration:

Every time I’ve ever put color in the bedroom I ended up taking it out but I’m in a colorful mood these days so it may just stick this time!
