We’ve made you wait in anticipation long enough. We finished up painting our bedroom two weeks ago after the hubs scraped the ceiling.
When I went to the local Benjamin Moore Color Market to pick a paint color, I decided to be brave and just get a gallon of what I chose. I figured it’s just paint, if we ended up hating it we’d paint over it. This time I just didn’t want to fool with buying samples, bringing them home and mulling over them for days. We wanted to get this room done in one weekend.
So after putting the other bedroom colors from this post up against a few of the greens we liked, I decided on Kittery Point Green (Ben line in eggshell).It popped against the white dove, gold and revere pewter. A few of the other more yellow greens like Georgian Green became too muted and washed out beside the greige of revere pewter. The other thing that sold me on this color is that it is part of their Historical Colors collection, which has stood the test of time. We like home designs/ideas/colors that are going to be classic and that we won’t have to change again in 5 years. Revere Pewter is also from the Historical Colors collection. Anytime you have two colors that are going to be side-by-side such as our bedroom and bathroom, the space will flow better if they are from the same color collection because they are intended to work well together.
We’ve hung a few things on the walls, but have wwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaayyy more to go. So this room is still in progress, but feels soooo good to have paint on the walls.
We have since bought a new fan and curtains that need to be hung. Need to purchase new wood blinds to replace the old yellowing mini blinds. The gold frame above is becoming a jewelry hanging/holding wall unit similar to this. We want a new bed, kind of like this or this or this and eventually a cute little love seat for the foot of our bed. The room needs more artwork/pictures on the wall and touches of accent colors like rust, gold and grey. But we’re getting there. Slow and steady wins the race finishing one project at a time. 🙂
