In the last year we have painted our master bedroom a color that I just absolutely love!
The color is Behr Ultra Pyramid Gold. It was a long road to this color. We first picked out a color at the store, bought 2 gallons of it, brought it home, started painting, and I hated it. It looked like a flesh or makeup color--not attractive. I decided I would rather eat the cost of the paint instead of living with a color that I hated. We then discovered that the store would let you buy small 7.5 oz trial sizes. Yahoo! We bought 3 different colors, and finally found this gold color that is just what I wanted.
I have so learned that a color can look drastically different in your home with it's unique lighting, than what it did at the store. A bamboo color I had picked for our living room ended up looking like a fluorescent green, and so our living room with very high ceilings had to have three additional coats of paint to cover it up. I have learned my lesson!
Anyway, now the room is painted, and decluttered.
Remember this!? Yikes! Anyway, that's history, and I am ready to put the finishing touches on the room.
My lamps were kind of "blah" so I thought I would try and give them a facelift.
I tried ribbon, flowers and fabric, but they looked like a bad arts and crafts project. So I switched them out with some lamps from another room, which I'll show you in a minute.
I needed something to hang on the empty wall above the bed. So I pulled this wreath out of storage and added some warmer color flowers and a ribbon to tie together the colors in the room. You'll see it in my after photos.
I bought some pillows at Target to complement and unite the color theme in the room. I am not a fan of 15 pillows on the bed that have to be removed at night; I'm just too practical for that. For me though, a couple of pillows are just perfect.
Ok, here are my after shots:
The curtains make it so warm and cozy looking, and no one who knows me will be surprised that they are plaid, because I love plaid and stripes!
