    OK here is another question for everyone. I am going to paint the master bedroom & bathroom next week. I'd like to do a soft teal color with orange accents.

    I am using my fiesta ware as inspiration for the home colors.

    I'm using an orange two shades lighter than the plate, but the blue is about the same

    The master bedroom has a tray ceiling. I'm trying to decide if I want to paint it & if I do I'm not sure what colors to put where

    here it is now

    I am thinking about doing the same colors in the master bath. I can also bring in a beige/neutral and just do colors for accent walls. I am pretty sure I want the closets and the wall up high to be orange. I don't know if I'd do the rest blue or beige. I want color, but I also don't want to over do it & have it look weird. The rooms are kind of tricky because there are so many different walls.

    I'm going for a beachy, caribbean feel. The furniture will be dark wood. We'll have just a bed + TV in the master with the dressers in the closet. All the furniture we have now will go in our guest room, so we are getting to start from scratch with the master.

          OMG. LOVE this room.

          I would probably do the middle orange (where the light hangs from) but everything else around that the teal color.

          So like this one:

          but with just the middle orange. I love colored ceilings.

            Morgan, I think you should come decorate my house. Cuz we apparently have lots of the same taste and we are obsessed with orange and blue combo. Well, I don't know if you can label yours an obsession, but I def can.

            I'm really bad at visualizing (hence the fact we haven't done much!), so I don't really have a decisive opinion on the tray ceilings. BUT I can say that when I watch the home shows and they paint the ceilings, I always love them. So I like the idea of painting it, I just can't say what I would do!

              Jessica, I like this one. I'm not sure why I didn't try that combo before

              The colors are a little off. I already shut down photoshop so I didn't open everything back up to get it just right.

                  Yeah, I like that. It's a little unexpected burst of color. Can't wait to see pictures of the final projects!

                    Morgan, I love the color pallet!!

                    So do you want color on the wall and then more nuetral colors in your fabrics?

                    Cause you can do an accent wall and bright fabrics. to really bring in alot of color. But if you want all the color on the walls and then you can do more nuetral fabrics and towels, etc.

                    Morgan, you're awesome, you know that?! Love the color combo!

                    I think by painting the ceiling tray the orange color it gives it the appearance of being higher. KWIM? this one gets my vote:
