I have great news… you no longer need to lose sleep over your overwhelming curiosity for what color our bedroom walls would end up. I’ve temporarily overcome my bout with indecisiveness and finally just chose a color. I’m definitely not feeling inspired with this bedroom transformation the same way I was in the nursery. It could be because that was a labor of love for my long-awaited darlings, and the ideas just naturally flowed into my head. But one way or another, our bedroom needs a facelift… cause I can’t handle the beige any longer. I believe this is where we left off after the addition of the headboard, the nightstands, and the swag lamps.
I “tried out” about 100 different wall colors in my head, and nothing really jumped out at me and said PICK ME! So finally I had enough. While Nick, I and the girls were at Menards picking up some things, we stopped by the paint section and… just picked a color! I’m so proud of myself. I love how this color is not quite gray, but also not quite brown. I call it BRAY. It’s that center one… Oswego Tea by Pittsburgh Paints.
I like that it’s neutral, yet still unique and dramatic. In the pics, it kinda looks purple… but it’s not. So this is what our bedroom looks like from out in the hallway.And here’s a totally random angle that I thought showed the integrity of the color very well.
And this is the new wall color looking towards the bed. I love how deep and rich it is! And because our bedroom is a southeast room, we get tons of daylight in our room pretty much all day long… so we were able to get away with going dark. Do yourself a favor, and ignore our bedding situation… namely the RED (ew).
Here she is at night.
We’ve got some work to do with floor-planning. We’ve been batting around a few ideas, most of which include a seating area and quite possibly some shelving of some kind. And giving that dresser a new lease on life. But don’t hold your breath. We’re pretty slow-moving lately, what with two babies moving into the separation-anxiety phase of babyhood.
Do you have any projects you’re tackling over the holidays? Send me links to your blogs so I can feed off your creativity! I need some inspiration today, and Pinterest just isn’t doing it.
