MCA-Save or Splurge, the Color Trends Edition: Recreate This Bedroom-1

In honor of our Power of Paint Contest, today we’re doing a little something different and showing you how to recreate one of our designs! This bold master bedroom, designed for M/I Homes, is one of our favorite recent spaces. It’s a great example of how The Art of Space can bring harmony to any space, no matter the style.

The use of pattern, texture and scale are front and center in this photo, but as in many spaces, knowing wall color trends was the first key to pulling the whole space together. To accomplish this eye-catching look, we used Sherwin Williams paint in Loggia, Keystone Gray, and Sage Green Light for the stripes, and Westhighland White for the trim. Keep reading below for ideas on how to copy the rest of the room, no matter your budget.

A reclaimed wood headboard adds pattern, texture, color, and loads of character. Save: King Reclaimed Wood Headboard, Jen’s Simple Dimensions ($575) / Splurge: Reclaimed Wood Sculpture King Headboard, Modern Textures ($1,400).

Brass accents add a sophisticated, delicate touch to the sturdy black nightstands. Save: Reynolds Bedside Table, Pottery Barn ($449) / Splurge: Lopez Sideboard, Brass Arrow ($725).

Hanging pendant lights a little lower adds an unexpected touch, allowing them to work as bedside lamps while balancing out the massive scale of the nightstands. Save: Harvest 1-Light Drum Swag Pendant in Natural, Overstock ($53.99) / Splurge: Sea Gull Lighting Stirling 3-Light Drum Pendant in Burnt Sienna, Lighting Direct ($258).

Graphic patterns add a bold touch to any room, and can be especially impactful on the floor. Both of these rugs capitalizae on one of the current color trends – a crisp mix of black & beige. Save: Loloi Goodman Area Rug in Black & Beige, Wayfair ($529) / Splurge: Surya Destinations Area Rug in Black & Beige, Hayneedle ($1,566).

If you have the room, never forgo adding a bench at the end of the bed. It’s a simple, yet ultra-convenient, touch. Save: Cortesi Home “X” Bench, Amazon ($142.99) / Splurge: Uttermost Corona Hardwood Bench, Wayfair ($438).
