the bedroom gets a makeover

It was supposed to rain here last weekend, so we figured it would be a good painting weekend (the weathermen were wrong, by the way…). Our bedroom was the only room we didn’t paint when we bought this place. It was painted a gold color, and while it wouldn’t have been my top pick for a bedroom color, it was ok enough to not require an immediate change.

However, during my ‘fabric as wall art’ craze, we covered a large frame with this great Marimekko print, Tuuli. The panel shows a tree in chocolate brown on a white background. And it really didn’t go well with the existing wall color!

I was looking for a color which I continually referred to as “spa blue” though I was hard pressed to actually describe what that color would look like. (I think I was trying to find a blue with some green/yellow tones.) I never quite found that color, but I do like what we ended up with (Rainwashed by Sherwin Williams, in case anyone’s interested!).

It’s really made the room look larger, brighter, and more airy. A nice change, for sure.

    I love the makeover! The wall art looks fantastic, especially on the spa blue paint color. Almost like the sky behind the trees. Very nicely done!

    Love it! My living room is a very similar color. I wasn’t sure about it at when I was putting ti up on the walls but now it’s my favorite room.
