Take 2... Dressing the bed

The main bedroom and I have been fighting each other for a while now. I've tried to create a calm and relaxing space with muted neutral tones. However, the colour scheme seems to be thrown out really easily and I've had to redo several things to make it all work. This was my first attempt at dressing the bed to work with the colour scheme -

Main bed - Take 1

Blah. I'm cringing now just looking at it. Not enough colour contrast or personality. So I tried again -

Main bed - Take 2

Inspired by the arrival of the long awaited black velvet armchair (not shown), I introduced slightly bolder black and white elements. The room feels crisper now, and a little more fun.

P.S. - Yes, I know the sheets are wrinkly. But I've been busy painting architraves while my house has no back doors!
