Opulent Blue Bedroom

Whenever I hear the name Mary McDonald, words like grand, bold, opulence and regency come to my mind.  Just take a look at Mary’s own bedroom:

Isn’t it fabulous? Dramatic colors, heavy drapery and bold patterns.


My favorite aspect of Mary’s bedroom is the great and highly affordable framework of the room. See the fabulous carpeting? The bold pattern is obviously painted right on there. The second to-die-for part of this bedroom is the molding. A trip to your local hardware store and a bit of practice with the angle saw, this room should be pretty affordable to emulate (although the original is anything but affordable ;)


Get the look with BM Mariner Blue, a healthy dose of crisp white and pops of pale pinks. And don’t forget to add some glamour with gold details.
