Periwinkle Palette

Not all of the color in the house is quite so saturated as the living spaces. In the master bedroom, Lynn set a soothing mood with a monochromatic palette of soft blues. The walls are pale aqua, while the fabrics, from the upholstered benches to the bedding to the trim on the window shades, feature soft periwinkle.

The master bedroom walls are painted Benjamin Moore's Sweet Bluette. The bed is from MItchell Gold, and the bedding is Matouk. The custom benches are covered in Romo fabric. Pillow fabrics are from China Seas, David Hicks, and Lee Jofa.
