Ivory and Indigo Indulgences
In decorating, where there is a serene envelope of ivory, there is room for indulgence. In this master bedroom, the indulgence is indigo pattern. No worries that the tranquility will be dispelled. The ivory and beige tone-on-tone striped walls, creamy draperies given a crisp edge beneath matching tailored valances, and mix of ivory upholstered seating and pale painted furniture ensure restfulness. The three indigo patterns—one on the headboard, another on the bed skirt, and yet a different one on the area rug—keep the decibals low through repetition of a key color.
Tip: Prevent a busy look when mixing patterns by varying the scale. In this bedroom, the largest pattern is on the rug; a medium scale pattern decorates the bed skirt; and a small leafy pattern enlivens the headboard.
