Our whole married life, Steve and I have slept in bedrooms someone else painted. And that’s about to change. Here’s what our bedroom looks like now.
Steve made the bed and the bedside table, and they’re gorgeous. Besides that, most of what you can see will change.
On our honeymoon, we bought a print of maple trees in full fall foliage. I’ve been meaning to frame and hang it for years now. I also have a white and navy comforter cover and a wool hooked rug from L.L. Bean. All I need is a paint color that will pull it all together.
I found this photo in Can’t Fail Color Schemes, one of the few home decorating books that’s worth buying.
I like this look. I like the contrast of the crisp white against the blue. What would you call that? Slate blue? Prussian blue? I like the warm wood against the cool blue-grey tones.
I’ve gone through several potential paint colors. I considered pale blue, but started to worry it would look too fluffy. I thought about dove gray. Now I’m thinking about going dark. It will make the room look dark, but … so what? It’s a master bedroom, not a playroom.
I’ll post pictures of the bedroom as we make progress.
