As you may have noticed a few weeks ago, the bedroom is going blue. It is blue now, actually, I finished painting it yesterday.
It’s a light, grayed blue with a hint of purple in it–like a grayed periwinkle. The color goes well with the rest of the house, but it’s a little more romantic feeling, which is a good thing for a bedroom.
So much brighter than before!
The bedroom will still be a little rustic, with natural elements (wood finishes, iron, textured wool and cotton) like the rest of the house. And to tone down the sweetness of the blue, the trim and accents in the room will be my favorite soft white and almost-black. Both the white and the black are used throughout the whole house.
The bed will be replaced with something less contemporary. I’d love a headboard like one of these:
But we’ll see.
First, we need to paint the ceiling, fix up the ceiling beams and install the moulding that’s in a pile on the floor.
The colors are: Martha Stewart’s Etched Glass (blue), Tailor’s Chalk (white), and Weathervane (black).
