Question

Ideas for my apartment bedroom


I'm thinking of getting headboard, but not sure if it should be turquoise or chocolate. My quilt is reversible turquoise/chocolate and my sheets are turquoise. The bedskirt is chocolate though. I know my sheets/blankets arent much, but its hard to find those colors as the rest of my apt is in them and Im carrying that theme throughout.

I'm also considering a chocolate round tablecloth for the table, but that might be too much brown as the curtains are that color as well. But I have turquoise round placemats and could put one on top. I could also reverse the quilt for turqouise. Right now it has a silk turquoise placemat, but it gets wrinkled and doesnt stay in place often.


The pictures arent much but I live in an apartment. Hoping someone can tell me what color headboard to get and its worth getting the tablecloth and any other ideas.

I would vote turquoise since there already seems to be a lot of brown in the room... or maybe a khaki color? That would look good with both brown and turquoise and that way you could use both sides of the bedspread. Good luck!

I too vote for a turqoise, maybe something lighter to contrast with the dark browns and darker shade of teal that you already have.

I thought of getting a round table cloth that is kind of a ivory color, not sure if that would be too out of date as I dont see many people using table cloths anymore.

Here is a picture of one that is dark brown

For the round table in the picture, I suggest adding some trim at the bottom of the bottom cloth and then change the tassels on the top cloth as well. Don't forget to add other complementary colors other than just brown and turquoise. You don't have to sew, you just need to have an iron.

Orange would be an excellent accent color for your turquoise & chocolate color scheme...it is considered a complementary color to blue (and all its hues) and is certainly a complement to your browns...besides, it's associated with joy and energy and we could all use a little more of those in our life (also, it represents bliss and can infuse great healing into your life!) For instance, you could use a couple of orange throw pillows on your bed with the brown headboard and turquoise comforter...or orange tassels on that round brown tablecloth...the possibilities are practically endless! Just use it wherever you want a little "splash" of extra color!!

Well my color scheme is:
turquoise, chocolate, biege, white and silver with turquoise as the accent color. However I dont have many silver items, but am on the process of working it in when I can. One problem is that lots of electronics are black, so I have a few black items.

I'm working on getting some art and I have a few pottery items and some fake roses I got (yes it might be lame, but I wont be able to grow plants in that room as I keep it dark and cool). I'll try to add some new pictures.

I didnt get the chocolate headboard as it was too flimsy so I may get the turquoise one or hold out for a better one altogether.

Funny. I do the opposite since my bedroom is relatively low traffic.

I have light colored wall to wall in almost all my rooms. Dirt gets vacuumed up so its not a problem. I have 2 boys who make messes so I get them cleaned twice a year. My husband complained at our last house about the light colored carpets and when we got this house he picked the same color.

The boys make more of a mess than my dog.
