Harboring Relaxation

January 2011  |

Winter is here. One way to keep warm this season is by creating a cozy and inviting bedroom to relax in. Our Harbor collection can do just the thing.  With its classic transitional style, soft neutrals and soothing blues, this bedroom collection is a place of serenity and warmth.

What’s so special about our Harbor Collection you ask?  Well, this bedroom furniture set features clean straight lines, elegantly curved aprons, and distinguished beveled drawer fronts for a simple but unique look. The pieces are finished in a rich dark Cappuccino finish, and accented with brushed chrome knobs for a bold contrast that you will love.
Now that you have all the big pieces, how can you accessorize this master bedroom to make it complete? Since many shades of warm earth tones are used on the walls, bedding and furniture, you need to choose an accent color.  I’ve selected a blue.  Shades of blue create a calming environment that will leave you feeling refreshed and well rested in the morning.  Accent your room with a throw blanket, vases, candles and artwork.  Remember, this is an accent color, don’t go overboard.

Another way to enhance your room is to add different shapes and textures.  Since the structure of the furniture pieces are very straight-edged and geometric, add contrast with curvaceous vases and lamps.  Also, since we have used a many flat solid colors, pair the solids with metallic accessories to add another texture.

Complete your room with a few frames.  I’ve selected dried foliage to adorn the room with, which brings a lively touch to the room.  Learn hour to mat and frame your own artwork with our Do It Yourself Guide on page 6!
