Just don't go overboard as you are not the only person that will ever be viewing your creation. I have seen some designs that the designer just loved but they would possibly be the only one to do so.

I always try to keep it suttle in colors on the walls and keep the woodwork a off white with the ceilings the same color as woodwork. This way you can use color in your bedding, paintings, and bed pillows. Wooden floors always are very nice.

With this type of design you can always change up your design without having to completely paint the walls by changing out throw pillows and paintings etc.

Don't forget all people don't like wild colors and styles.

Also remember that bedrooms should be restful in appearance.

Unless you plan on selling, don't be afraid to use some color. My work brings me into thousands of homes and most keep it safe by using neutrals on the walls. I think colors that inspire you brings out the spirit of your home.

Unfortunately I remember all these shows. There are a few I didn't see mentioned while non sitcoms still memories: Diver Dan (real cheesy cheaply made kids show), Moving On (Claude Akins was a trucker) and Dennis The Menace. Great memories we too still have many of them on tv here in Georgia

Ya..getting inspiration about what we see on TV is not a bad thing. This is specially good for those who fall short of ideas..like me...when it comes to home furnishing ..i really get confused..But luckily there are some furniture stores that always help me out. I prefer Furniture zone & sleep shop. They really offer me interesting furniture designs.
