Ask the Amateur: Pop Art Bedroom!

Sean asks: "I was wondering if you had any suggestions on curtains and a good rug for my bedroom. Anything mid-century modern would be good, or anything that would work with that era. I have a mid-century dresser painted red, a platform bed, a Roy Lichtenstein triptych, and hardwood floors. The room is painted in Olympic's Teeny Bikini blue with gray trim. 

The Amateur says: Sean, you need to play up the Lichtenstein Pop Art goodness! Add bright yellow accents, a bold large-scale print on the floor, and choose solid white floor-length panels for the windows to give the eye a place to rest.

Background Color: Olympic Teeny Bikini blue
Rug: Roundabout Rug by CB2. $299.
Curtain: Marimekko Frekvenssi panel from Crate & Barrel. $49.95.
Lamps: Vintage. Spray-paint your own lamps!
Pillow Cover: Homegrown Pillows at Etsy. $11.95. 

Sean says: "But I had a hankering for patterned curtains."
The Amateur says: "Oh. Then... this!"

Rug: Sansom 5 by 8 White Shag Rug. $215.
Curtain: Teramo panel by Crate & Barrel. $99.95.
Pillow: Colt Revolver by utilitarianfranchise at etsy. $35
