      Choose a Color Scheme Identifying a color scheme will help guide the other decisions you'll be making, such as choosing accessories. Go into a decorating project with a color scheme in mind, but allow for some flexibility. For example, you may find a blue rug with green accents that you love, but you had it in your mind to use yellow as an accent. A rug can be a major component of a room, so you may have to ask yourself if you want to alter your original ideas to incorporate this rug.

      •Aquamarine Paint Colors Try out the bolder side of blue with aquamarine hues. Designer Khristian A. Howell recommends giving aqua a test run on a piece of furniture. "It's not a sub for painting the whole wall -- nothing is -- but it gets your hands dirty with the color a little bit," Howell says. "Being bold is all about balance," she says. In other words, don't use aqua on every surface in the room. A tiny dose will make an impression, especially in a room full of grays, creams, and whites.

      Somewhere once BHG offered the name of the paint color used - can't find it anywhere now. Would love to know as this bedroom has been an inspiration for my guest room.

      those are turquoises... not true blues... wish BHG would seriously jump on the blue everything bandwagon. I love true blue, cobalt and the like. It is so hard to find in decorating things. or even clothes. Sandy, look at home depot... those colors are in the behr palette around 480-520A and C colors.. My bedroom is called Jamaica Bay its 500D it is very similar to the middle small lid.
