Romantic Bedroom Design

Use pieces of salvaged iron as a headboard and bed crown.

With its brilliant turquoise patina, verdigris is as beautiful and instantly recognizable as shiny copper (its untarnished state). Contrasted with both light and dark purple fabrics and touches of white, it truly pops. Amp up hits of true verdigris by painting out select pieces, like a dresser or side table, in a complementary cool green hue.
