Here is what I'd like to do with our bedroom (yes, our bedroom is big enough to hold large patterns well):
I want to paint the walls this color, and keep the white trim.
I may use this print for pillow shams (just 2) - It's a heavy print but the room is HUGE and the rest of the patters are mellow.
I plan to use this color for the curtains. They'll be fairly long, as the windows are big, but the print is toned down enough, I think it'll flow well. Also, the bed and curtains are across the room from one another, which will help.
I always just buy plain white or cream sheets, so I plan to stick with solid navy blankets and Cream/White and navy pillow cases.
I don't think I'm going to even go near the idea of replacing the furniture in our bedroom right now. It's old and a little worn, but I think I can re-do our bedroom for less than $100 with the changes I want to make now....no needs to push this up a few hundred dollars more!!
***SO this is where YOU tell me what you think...any other ideas? better fabrics or patterns? honesty is essential here, folks :)!***
