Arguably I deserve the blank white walls, particularly if they come with a matching straight jacket.
This room has come a long way from being a grassy patch in the back yard:
Which, I would almost take the grassy patch again if it came with sunshine and seventy degree temps, but what’s done is done. And now, I get the pleasure of trying not to bleed from the eyeballs while spending numerous hours every day looking a paint swatches.
I won’t say it came without blood tears whining a little frustration, but I’ve narrowed the color choices for the master bed/bath down to the final five. I think.
Benjamin Moore’s Sea Haze and Desert Twilight are top contenders for the bedroom and bathroom respectively. Chelsea Gray is a pretty good match for Restoration Hardware’s Slate (which I’m totally watching to see how it turns out over at House of Hepworth’s no-longer-purple dining room) I like that it’s a warmer gray, and since I’m using wood trim instead of your standard white, that could be key.
Which is all well and good, except every time I look at those blue grays, I fall a little bit more in love…
So, probably I’m going to end up painting it maroon or something. Stranger things have happened.
