Karen Kanefield has been perplexing to figure out what to do with a 11-by-14-foot master bedroom of her Silver Spring home given she changed in 4 years ago, though she keeps doubt her ideas. She is drawn toward a thought of a gray room with blue and fuchsia accents and wants a modern, glam space designed around a mirrored dresser and chest she owns.

To make a room feel stylish and cozy, go dim with a paint. Try Dior Gray by Benjamin Moore . Splurge on hardware for unresolved a drapes. It will rouse a feeling of a whole space. An area carpet with a vast settlement will anchor a space and wear well. A marble-top chrome side list complements a mirrored dresser though being overly matchy. A headboard that is a identical tone to a walls will make a room feel larger. A king-size duvet cover and insert will hang easily off a sides of a black bed for a some-more lush look.  Simple white linen fate give a room a healthy though worldly vibe.
