If you are worried about too much pink in the room then start small with bedding accent pillows or vases in pastel pink. Once you are comfortable with the hue think about larger additions like a plush rug or accent wall covered in pastel pink power!
As you brainstorm DIY possibilities don’t hesitate to get extra creative. Melamine shelving and fabric trim combine in the headboard below from Rosyscription featured at Bob Vila:
In other words invest in quality bedding that is comfy and use what’s left of your budget to purchase the other items on your wish list. This Melyssa Teal Bedding from CB2 is big on texture and blue-green goodness:
CB2’s Serena Teal Blue Vase celebrates shades of blue with a reactive glaze and a bold round form. The only thing more beautiful is the end result of adding flowers to the mix! Then again this piece can truly stand on its own.
Another Mauro Lipparini design is a bed with no discernable corners thanks to the extra padding that has been used in headboard and in the bed frame. The angular headboard of Youniverse also creates a ‘cocoon effect’ which provides a comfortable and safe niche even in a large bedroom by creating a ‘room within a room’.
You can always find a special bench or chair on sale especially when you visit sites such as Overstock.com. See what’s left of your budget and search for lovely seating options in your price point.
