Well, a couple weeks ago I finally got around to painting our master bedroom.
Actually, I finally finished the closet, so I “let” myself paint the bedroom! Please tell me that I am not the only one who has to “bribe” myself to get certain tasks done before the fun stuff happens?!?!?!?
The color before was 3 walls that were pale green and one wall a darker green. This was color coordinated with a wedding ring quilt that my mom made for our 1st anniversary.
I decided that I wanted to go with something more monochromatic – but it still needs to work with the blue carpet.
I found the following material that I am using for my inspiration.
The paint was matched to the slightly darker shadow inside the blue lines.
I had one of those – “Oh no” – moments when it first went on against the old wall color! I was thinking that it was maybe going to be too dark.
But once it was finished, I really liked it. I think it makes the dark trim look richer and it gives a very calm, restful feel to the space.
I am waiting until I finish the curtains, bedding and decorations before I do a complete reveal! You can see just a little bit of the blue carpet in the corner – so you know what I’m up against!
