Creating a non-creepy looking Colonial style bedroom is hard to do, something about all of the muted original colors in a kind of Chalk Dust paint that reminds us of grandma’s house. So many Colonial homes, especially as you head south just tend to feel stale. If you have to go the traditional Colonial décor, keep it simple – one color palate, whatever that is, in this case a cream with a very muted light olive and then touches of powdery pale blue in the carpet. Note there is absolutely no doily-esque anything to be seen, a few ruffles here and there, but that’s it. Doilies need to stay dead and buried.
