Gabriel & Karla's "Happy When It Rains" Room

Happy When It Rains


Gabriel & Karla


Dallas, Texas



Colors Used

Dark gray, yellow with a hint of hot pink.

Color Inspiration

I love gray but I love all kinds colors, particularly pink. However, I knew Gabriel would never let me decorate the entire room in pink so I settled for just the lamps. We used the grays and yellows in the quilt as a guide to paint and decorate the room.

Color Tips

Don't be afraid of color.

I don't love the pink, but the bedspread and the chair totally make up for it. I love, love, love grey with yellow. (though the grey looks purple on my computer screen)

Love the room! I have the same bed so I was wondering what did you guys put behind it to be able to put lamps on it?

Loida2082 it's just a lack of the same color so the bed sticks out away from the wall. Now we have shelf area and we can hide things behind the bed under the lack!

Thank you all for the kind comments!

@barbaraq_Ohio & @beckestra - we got it at a Crate & Barrel outlet last winter, we love it too! Thank you!

@nycpuggirl - I actually don't remember but I think it might be Behr's Anonymous. I know I should have kept a sample but I think I accidently trashed it. Eek, not good. But thanks!

@Loida2082 - it's the Ikea shelf LACK. It works great! We have one behind our couch as well. Since our place is small it works well by creating additional storage behind the bed and couch.

Definitely love the gray and yellow, the chair and mirror give the room a nice touch.

Thanks! Awesome! I'm going to do the same. My cat always falls back there then can't get out. Not the easiest bed to move.
