As per the request to see the room that got painted yesterday……it’s a looong way from being pulled together, but here is the wall with some colors I like with it. The color is a little darker than what I envisioned [a little darker than how it photographed here], but I’m going to stay the course….have some furniture to paint that will probably throw more light back on the walls. Also, from trying to always find the right paint colors for my home, I have learned that light bulbs play a significant role in the way color is reflected…haven’t played with that yet….
So the plan is to accent with corals which are showing more pink in the pic here :( The pillow is there, because it is a creamy, warm linen….I think that color will be brought in with bedding, and I’m thinking of, maybe, painting my armoire and bed the same color.
Sorry, I just gave my wide angle lens to Jenna to use to take pics for her blog, So I can’t give you the full effect.
I’m also thinking I might paint the white walls in the picture above the same creamy linen color…not sure yet…I just think that little alcove needs to be a different color than the blue maybe [?]…and the chest pictured a coral? not sure at all….
I am struggling a bit with the color of my wood floor in the room….it’s looking a little orange with the walls this color, but I think I can use a rug to break that up.
sooooo this is such a different look for me…I am usually more mellow in paint choices….last night I was feeling like I must be living in the Miami Dolphin locker room….but……perhaps it’s time the cheese got moved…
It usually takes me a while to accept a new look…
So that’s where we are today…still playing :)
