Brendan and I are turning what used to be our guest room into our master bedroom, and that means starting (almost) from scratch! We inherited a king size bed, and found a red and black kilim rug from a thrift store. We’ve got our dressers and bedside tables already, so really we’re just working on curtains, lighting, artwork, mirrors to bounce some light around, pillows, and… PAINT! I tend to be color-shy with wall paint, and thought the room would look best with white or pale blue walls (you can see some of my light-and-airy bedroom inspiration here). But Brendan wanted to go bolder, so we’ve picked a dark blue paint with crisp white trim.
It’s being painted today, and I’m a little scared.
It’s already one of the darker rooms in our house, so I hope the dark color wasn’t a big mistake. Photos coming soon, but until then, these photos are reassuring me that dark will be good and cozy. I love it paired with neutral linens, and that top photo looks great with the black and white artwork and gold bedside lamp.
