If you have a collection of mismatched furniture and you’d like your room to have a more refined aesthetic, consider painting all the pieces one color. Painting is an easy and economical way to unify a variety of furniture styles in the same room.
Or, perhaps you need a splash? Purchase one brightly colored accent piece, such as a nightstand or side chair, and it could be just what your bedroom needs.
Be it black, white, or your favorite bold hue, let’s take a look at decorating a bedroom with painted furnishings.
Raspberry is the color of choice in this girl’s room. This tone might not seem all that practical, but it adds personality to what would otherwise be a pretty bland space. The sage green walls are a beautiful backdrop too.
A shabby-chic style Chicago bedroom takes on an elegant feel with older white furniture. Notice the variety of white used here. Different shades make this romantic room feel cohesive, yet not boring.
A turquoise chest adds just the right amount of color to this simple guest room with no headboards, painted floors, and sheer curtains. Can you picture the room without the chest? I think it would feel like it was missing an essential component. This room is a terrific example of a single piece of furniture completing a space.
Black brings this bedroom to life. The black painted furnishings and roman shades combined with the funky chandelier and table lamp, not to mention the skins and guitars work well together for a boy’s room or guest quarters.
I adore everything about this bedroom. The delicate bed with a painted green finish; the white nightstands with green hardware; the symmetry, and even the placement of the bed in front of the window. Everything feels right.
