Isn’t it strange how you become friends with folks you haven’ t even met? The magic of Internet! I first discovered Reshma’s blog, Weekend Tweaks, after I casually clicked on her comment on another blogger’s blog. To say that I was super excited to see another fellow Indian who is equally passionate about DIY & home decor wouldn’t be an understatement.
What I admire the most about Reshma is that she is never afraid of color. This is a gal who painted a dresser in her living room hot pink! Yes, you read that right HOT PINK and you know what it looks great! Today she is sharing her son’s room with us.
Not one to be bound by the usual dark colors in boy’s room decor Reshma took the happy and cheerful route with the fun yellow and red combo. Any guesses on the number of DIY projects in this room?
Of course the yellow horizontal stripes. What else? The headboard, which used to be a memo board, the no sew bed skirt, the curtains made with fabric from IKEA, the vintage frame, the list goes on… The dresser got a paint makeover as did the desk in the other corner.
The shelves above the desk too got painted navy to match the desk. Notice how the ample use of white grounds the room and keeps the yellow from becoming too overwhelming? Yellow is a very tricky color to work with, kudos to her for making it look fabulous in this room.
To see more of Reshma’s color adventures hop on over to her blog. Spoiler alert….she recently add orange accents to her living room. 😉
Do you love using color in your home? Or do you chicken out like me when it comes to going bold?
